Fives’ proven sorting solution to automate PostNord Denmark parcel distribution

INTRALOGISTICS PostNord-Aalborg-FIVES

In September 2015, Fives was awarded a turnkey contract by PostNord Denmark to supply one sorting system for packets and postal parcels up to 50kg.

PostNord Denmark delivers mail to all households and businesses throughout the country and it is part of the PostNord Group. PostNord Denmark entrusted the contract to Fives mainly because of the flexibility shown by the team in proposing a solution which complies with the project time constraints and also thanks to the good reputation achieved by Fives with the systems delivered to PostNord between 2011 and 2014 in Sweden. 

The proposed turnkey solution to install in the existing postal building located in Aalborg includes:

  • one 253 m long cross-belt sorter
  • roller cage tippers, 
  • telescopic conveyors, 
  • one ACCORD singulator, 
  • upstream lines with data capture,
  • control system including high level management software.

When completed in June 2016, the system will provide PostNord Denmark with a sorting capacity of up to 6,300pph to 98 destinations.
