Operational Overview

To receive the best results from the sorter, the shipments must first be entered in the layout which Inbound conveyors have provided. As shipments arrive through C-line at the Induct conveyors, four arm diverters assist in diverting the shipments to empty induct chutes based on inputs from sensors installed at the chutes. There are currently 5 induction lines, the fifth of which is known as 'Rejection Induct'.

The CBS loop, which is at the centre of the system, contains 354 carriers that sort supplies at specific destinations. When an operator starts feeding shipments into the loading conveyor, ECDS determines the number of vacant carriers available and loads the shipments onto these carriers, which then travel through the ICR, where the shipments are allocated their destinations.

After getting the destinations from ICR shipments travels to specified destinations and get sorted into primary and secondary chutes which is followed by the Put to Light System operators. We successfully helped India's largest logistics solutions provider soar their earnings and develop a revered market image by increasing efficiency and making sorting operations faster, smarter, and cheaper.
