Major Express awards Vanderlande Industries first Parcel & Postal project in Russia

VEGHEL, the Netherlands – After reaching agreement at Post-Expo 2012 in Brussels, Vanderlande Industries and Major Express of Moscow have now signed the contract for an automated parcel sorting system.

Major Express is a privately owned express parcel company located in the Russian capital Moscow. With an exclusive two-year contract from FedEx for the Russian market together with its own organic growth, Major Express decided to automate its sorting process.

One-and-a-half years ago Major Express was invited by FedEx for a visit to the FedEx site in Cologne,  where they were able to see a Vanderlande Industries sorting solution in action. The visit made a strong impression on the board of Major Express. To support the continued growth of the business, Major Express found a new location for their operation.

“Based on the future goals and requirements of Major Express and the layout of the new location, we organized a couple of workshops together with the customer. This resulted in the best possible sorting solution for Major Express”, said  Lodewijk Reineke, Area Director Parcel Postal of Vanderlande Industries.

The solution chosen consists of a CROSSORTER 700 combined with 60 chutes for parcels and 120 chutes for documents. The system is designed to handle a total capacity of 9,000 parcels per hour. The new sorting system will be operational in July 2013.
