Parcel sortation systems offer a highly efficient and accurate means of routing, sorting, consolidating, and diverting a wide range of parcel types to unique destinations for the purposes of packaging, palletizing, storing, and shipping, among others. A parcel sortation system comprises several sub-components working together under the direction of a warehouse execution system or warehouse control system and machine controllers. Parcel sortation systems enable automated sorting of a parcel; parcel sortation can be done on the basis of several parameters, including size, volume, bar code reading, or fragility of the items in the parcel. Parcel sortation systems are used to sort parcels that differ in volumes, carrying pharmaceuticals, or other fragile products. These systems also enable the next/same day delivery of parcels to consumers. Earlier, parcel sorting was done manually, which is time consuming and costly. Manual way of sorting parcels is prone to errors and is not an ideal solution to sort large volumes of parcels. Automated parcel sortation systems can sort large volumes of parcels efficiently and provide a long-term solution to end users. Moreover, these systems have a higher throughput capacity, provide higher cost benefits, and are a safer and more secure option to sort parcels.
