3rd Party Logistics Parcel Sorting
Third-party logistics providers play a crucial role in the modern supply chain, offering a range of services that help businesses to manage their logistics operations more efficiently. This includes the storage, transportation, and distribution of goods on behalf of other businesses. One of the key advantages of using a 3PL is that it allows businesses to outsource their logistics operations to a specialist provider, freeing up resources and allowing them to focus on their core competencies.
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.
