Automated parcel processing center

While working on a brownfield expansion project, we developed and implemented a complex automated solution for a leading material handling service company. Our team was responsible for controls, electrical engineering, panel fabrication, permitted drawing sets, electrical installation, and site deployment of a high-speed sortation system. As a result, the systems are successfully sorting over 110,000 parcels per hour, with precision and efficiency. The comprehensive project scope at this facility encompassed power and control for 700 conveyors, installation of 8 paddle sorters, 12 shoe sorters, and the design, fabrication, and deployment of 46 control panels.

Installation of parcel sortation system

For a major e-commerce fulfillment company, our team was responsible for the electrical installation of the parcel sortation system at the largest warehouse in the UK. More than 65 operatives were involved in the project, installing around 30 kilometers of conveyors. By seamlessly blending efficient project management practices with strict adherence to health and safety procedures and site protocols, our team successfully completed the project within a six-month timeframe to the client’s full satisfaction.

Maintenance of sortation equipment

To ensure that sortation equipment and facilities run smoothly and there is no downtime, Leadec offers tailored maintenance concepts. For a freight and parcel delivery company we recently took over maintenance services of the sorting systems at 20 locations throughout Germany, which Leadec optimally covers thanks to its excellent network of sites. Our scope is including a 24/7 on-call service, inspection routines, preventive maintenance activities, and spare parts management. In addition, we provide project work such as mechanical and electrical installations and retrofitting of the sorting equipment including PLC programming.
