The basic idea: the two functions „sorting“ and „loading of delivery vehicles“ performed at different points in time. In classic sorting processes, the packages slide down to their individual destinations, but LIPPERT has developed a patented solution which allows the deliveries to be placed on top of each other mechanically in individual blocks at the sorting destinations.

This is made possible by LIPPERT MULTILAYER, which buffers delivery volumes amounting to the capacity of a delivery vehicle and more at the destination points.

This obviates the need for drivers of the delivery vehicles to be present at the loading doors during the entire sorting process. It is only shortly before or after the end of the sorting process necessary that the delivery vehicles arrive and the consolidated package volume is loaded onto the vehicles. With this system, the loading times per vehicle are significantly shortened, with a corresponding reduction in the working hours of the driver.

Patented technology

From a belt conveyor, a Rota-Sorter® is used to move the deliveries rapidly and using minimal pressure to the destination point in the form of a sinus curve. Using the LIPPERT MULTILAYER, the deliveries are first measured to determine their length, width, height, and weight. The destination point is vertically flexible, such that based on the previously determined dimensions, the shipments are placed both next to each other horizontally and on top of each other vertically during the discharge process. This achieves a high buffer volume at the destination point. Furthermore, a special and nifty solution allows every individual discharge process to be adequately adjusted to each individual delivery: Without interrupting the flow of packages, a sorting method is used which is adapted to the weight and the nature of the individual delivery. For example, a heavy parcel is not placed on top of a light one etc. in order to avoid crushing or damage to the delivery below it.
