Leading Multinational E-Commerce Business Invests In Robust Conveyor Solution

L-A-C provides a leading worldwide online retailer with a modular, scalable & robust conveyor solution to satisfy increased parcel handling throughput requirements. The world-renowned company have invested in a new conveyor solution from L-A-C. The business boasts a network of over 800 delivery service partners with more than 75,000 drivers. Likewise, parcel deliveries operate 7-days a week, 365 days a year, providing their premium customers with next day delivery.

The Brief


LEARN MORE
The customer’s existing parcel sortation system offered limited inducts to infeed into their system. Therefore, they were unable to meet their increasing parcel handling throughput requirements of 15,000 parcels per hour. As a result, the customer contacted L-A-C to design a solution that would deliver the required throughput, having an existing conveyor system not built for increased demand. In addition to this, the parcel handling system had to be future proof to cope with future increasing throughput requirements.

The Challenge

L-A-C’s design team had to consider how to accommodate the increased throughput of 1 parcel every 2 seconds within the space allocated. Therefore L-A-C designed the parcel handling system to accommodate for varying parcel sizes and shapes, anywhere from 100mm x 100m x 3mm to 1500mm x 750mm x 750mm. In addition, the L-A-C team had to remove the existing system and install the new conveyor solution within a tight time frame, meaning the layout of the conveyor system would have to be robust and quick to install.

THE SOLUTION

The company’s parcel handling solution is a clever configuration standard of L-A-C, utilising the space available. Using belt driven takeaway conveyors to divert parcels. A combination of transverse conveyor, herringbone section, “O” ring drive curves, tapered roller bends, incline conveyors and motorised transfer rollers are used for the reliable distribution of varying parcels.

L-A-C used centralising conveyor sections, in areas where manual interaction was required. On exit, parcels are transferred to a 50m “fingers” roller conveyor section, where the operator would pick to light in preparation for dispatch.

 

L-A-C designed bespoke safety shrouds for exposed elements where operators could access, minimising the risk of damage to goods. The L-A-C team supplied a total of 700 metres of conveyors and could carry 50kg to 100kg load capacity.
