Automation for mail processing and distribution

Cimcorp’s tray handling solutions have been developed for material handling tasks in mail sorting centers. The integrated tray handling, sorting and sequencing manage the mail flow during the mail processing.

Benefits of Cimcorp solutions for the postal industry


Higher system throughput 
Bigger batches
Higher utilization of process machines

More freedom for production planning 
Better overview of the process 
Limitless opportunities to process development

Faster deliveries
Shorter handling times
Rapid final sweeping & fast vehicle loading

Cimcorp’s tray handling solutions for mail processing include 

  • Robotic systems for tray sorting and sequencing
  • High-speed conveyor loops for tray transportation
  • Dolly loading and unloading
  • Total material flow control from tray registration to dolly loading through Cimcorp Warehouse Control Software
The key components of the systems are gantry-type robots to store and sort trays of mail in stacks placed directly on the floor. They operate as a buffer storage area between mail acceptance and the sorting machines, as well as between the sorting machines and dispatch. The robots also take care of sequencing of trays for sorting machines.

With vast experience in logistics automation, Cimcorp can design, install and support the total solution including the robotics, conveyors, material flow control and systems integration.

“The big advantage compared with the competition is that Cimcorp’s solution for tray handling and sorting is able to alleviate peak situations in a rational way.”  - Hannu Tuominen, Development Director, Itella
