AUTOMATED AND ENERGY-EFFICIENT MAIL TRAY PROCESSING HOW POSTEN NORGE HAS USED THE BEUMER GROUP SORTER TO REVOLUTIONISE ITS MAIL CENTRE OPERATIONS Posten Norge – the Norwegian Postal Service – has the ambition of developing into the leading mail and logistics corpor­ tion in the Nordic region, in a tandem with becoming the world’s most future-orien­ed mail and logistics group. t A major elem­ nt in this forward-thinking e approach is the development of an attractive workplace with a good working environment for its 2,500 staff. An outstanding example of this intention can be seen at Posten’s Østlandstermin­ len mail centre in Oslo, a where a strategy was implemented to reduce manual hand­ing and heavy lifts l and to create a single automated flow through the operation by combining a number of automated actions. ›› A new energy-efficient sortation/ distri­ ution system with auto b storage and robot palletising. ›› Trays are automatically transported and sorted to a dynamic storage system according to destination and departure time. ›› The system collects, sorts, stores and palletises more than 10,000 mail trays an hour.
