Successful commissioning of DPD France (former Exapaq)
The new sortation DPD France sortation terminal is now fully operational at Sublaines, in the center of France.
In 2013, DPD France (former Exapaq) awarded Fives with a contract to supply an automated solution for its new 8,000sqm HQE (High Environmental Quality) terminal. Flexible and high-throughput, the solution based on Fives’ cross-belt technology was design to sort a large variety of different items like tires, trays and boxes, up to 50kg.
The installation is controlled by Trace®, Fives’ WCS and includes 7 high resolution video cameras to identify the parcels on 5 sides.
Fourteen injection lines are gathered on 7 injectors to feed the 11,000pph sorter. Parcels are sorted to 60 reloading exits tied together with motorized telescopic equipment. Irregulars are automatically detected and transferred to a specific carousel.
