Parcel Sorting for 3PL Companies

Third-party logistics (“3PL”) is a strategic business arrangement where companies outsource their logistics and supply chain operations to specialized companies to handle various activities on their behalf.  Transportation, warehousing, distribution of goods, inventory management, order fulfillment, and even value-added services like packaging and labeling through a 3PL allows companies to focus on their core competencies while relying on the expertise and resources of the 3PL provider to efficiently and cost-effectively manage specific operations.

Automated parcel sorters are an important system for 3PLs. They enable these companies to quickly and accurately sort packages according to a variety of criteria. Parcel sorters work by utilizing a dimension, weight, scan (DWS) tunnel to determine the appropriate sorting criteria. This includes the destination of the package and the size and weight of the package. Sliding Shoe Sorters are among some of the fastest and most efficient types of sorting systems available today. NPI’s Xstream has many benefits that are unmatched by other shoe sorters.
