Packet & Parcel
Sorting Systems

International online business is booming. This poses enormous challenges not only for courier and parcel delivery services, the distribution centers are also groaning under the rising volume of packets, shorter and shorter delivery times and the increasing variety of items that need to be handled. In order to ensure parcels and packets reach their recipients as rapidly and reliably as possible, sorting centers need efficient and flexible solutions that optimize and automate their processes. Grab your slice of the cake and turn the online boom into a WOW – with BÖWE SYSTEC sorting solutions.

BÖWE SYSTEC solutions automate the entire length of the process chain, from the receipt of goods, through sorting to dispatch. Whatever the challenge that confronts you, we are a one stop shop for cleverly designed systems and smart software that will turbocharge your processes from start to finish.



Induction technology
for parcel sorting

Goods need to be received efficiently if a post and packet center is to perform to the maximum. Telescopic conveyors, scissor conveyors and unloading aids shorten the throughput times at the loading ramp and are easy to operate. Singulators, tippers or divert units all help to singulate large product streams efficiently. The right choice of conveyor technology is the key to forwarding all items to the sorter as rapidly and securely as possible. Whether roller, chain or belt conveyor, we will find the right solution for your incoming goods that increase productivity.

Fast and secure unloading

The receipt of goods is a fundamental step that precedes all downstream internal transport, sorting and picking processes. This makes it all the more important to adopt the right solutions for unloading incoming parcels and packets from trucks rapidly and securely. BÖWE SYSTEC offers a whole series of solutions for the efficient receipt of goods, whether involving manual or automated unloading. Height-adjustable scissor roller conveyors and various unloading aids facilitate the manual unloading process for a wide range of consignment sizes. Telescopic conveyors are often used for automated unloading. They provide a robust and ergonomic solution for loading and unloading at loading bridges or ramps. Extension and retraction are motorized and speeds of 1,200 packets per hour are easily achievable and the turnaround time per vehicle can often be reduced by up to 30 percent. Their compact, retractable design means that telescopic conveyors are also suitable for smaller parcel and distribution centers. Get in touch with us and we will create the ideal link between your transport and internal logistics.

Singulating large product streams efficiently

Singulation means turning a mass of packages, containers and polybags into a linear stream that can be fed into a sorter. Singulators can handle a broad product spectrum and adjust the speed of the packet stream to the changing replenishment requirements of the downstream sorter’s guidance units. In doing so, they help to keep manual intervention and monitoring of the operation to a minimum.

Roller, chain link or belt conveyors: Choose the optimum conveyor technology

Conveyor systems are responsible for the smooth flow of materials from the arrival of goods to their dispatch. Roller conveyors generally transport the goods over  product specific rollers to their destination. Their modular design means that roller conveyors can easily be configured to suit particular spatial conditions. They are usually driven by motorized rollers or drive stations beneath the conveyor. Belt conveyors are another way of optimizing your internal workflows and these can run not just in straight lines but also around bends and up inclines. However, if significant changes in height need to be achieved in limited space then lifters or screw conveyors are the best choice. Lifters use stroke drives to overcome height differences whilst screw conveyors adopt the Archimedes screw principle.

DISPATCH & Shipping
in packet sorting

The smooth organization of dispatch is crucial for the overall efficiency of the flow of materials in the parcel sorting business. It is here that all the streams come together. BÖWE SYSTEC’s discharge solutions ensure that goods are sorted gently and precisely. Divert units automatically and gently change the direction of an item and steer it to its right destination. Single, double or tilting chutes in the innovative BÖWE design ensure that the goods leave the sorter in the best possible condition. Whether goods are then loaded directly on the truck or on to trolleys or pallets, we optimize your dispatch processes.

Gentle bypassing reduces complaints

Handling goods gently reduces the number of complaints. Consequently, BÖWE SYSTEC offers a number of different chutes in order to route goods of all sizes quickly and securely towards pallets, stores, trolleys or sacks. Whether single, double, storage or tilting – all BÖWE chutes offer optimum sliding characteristics and particular high wear resistance.

Efficient loading – the final link in the chain

A variety of conveyors and belts again play an important role when loading the vans and trucks that will take the goods to their final destination. Scissor rollers and telescopic conveyors significantly speed up loading and improve the ergonomics of the final step. Compact design means that such solutions are also ideally suited to smaller packet and distribution centers. Whatever your requirements or site conditions, we will find the best dispatch solution for you. 

BÖWE SYSTEC solutions automate the entire parcel center production chain — you should also take a look at our flexible sorting systems and efficient solutions for optimizing the receipt of goods.
