Sorting solutions


1. Consolidation and packing

After the order-picking process, the products will continue, via the infeeds and the induction line, into the consolidation area. In this area all products are combined and will be sorted to the correct packing table. Here the products will be packed together to form larger shipments.


2. Checking and identification

To keep track of your orders, you need tracking devices throughout the process. We design and integrate fully automatic identification, weighing, volume-scanning and dimensional weight-scanning equipment, with a legal-for-trade certification depending on your application. VanRiet only integrates A-brand identification equipment to ensure minimal “no-read” levels, as well as optimal sortation quality and efficiency.


3. Sorting

Sorting the parcels at high speed in the right direction of the sorting solution without damaging the products is one of the most dynamic and complex stages of the cross-docking process. Since downtime is a definite no-go in this process, VanRiet offers several easy-to-maintain sorting solutions. Our patented closed-deck shoe sorter prevents cartons from getting stuck between the slats and lowers noise emissions, even at a speed of up to 3 meters per second. The recently developed IQ-Grid™ represents a new generation of wheel-sorting solutions. This flexible and bi-directional sorting system is the perfect solution if there is much distance between the outfeeds of the sorter.


4. Loading

Loading the parcels from the sorter into the trucks can be quite an intensive, time-consuming process, since it is often done manually. VanRiet can moderate this process by using truck loaders, flexible and extendable conveyors and small foldable extendable conveyors, which will improve your workers’ ergonomics.
