21174

Hermes Logistik Group has chosen Beumer to equip a new distribution centre at the Hannover-Langenhagen airport in Germany.

The order for the distribution centre comprises two high-capacity sortation systems, type BS 25 E-Tray, each with a capacity of 10,600 trays per hour. These systems are being installed to sort cardboard boxes, bags and small items, as well as letters and catalogues.

Beumer said both sorters ensured redundancy in the new distribution centre, resulting in high operational reliability of the system.

In addition, the sorters have the flexibility to increase the number of planned destinations, enabling Hermes to react quickly if the volume of deliveries grows in the future. This also allows the unloading capacity at the final stage of extension to be doubled.
