Innovative systems in Parcel Sortation

The company focuses on the entire sortation process – starting with the unloading of parcels – which means that it offers a complete range of telescopic conveyors. The next step is sortation, with state-of-the-art line and loop sorters available. The most appropriate sorter depends on such factors as the characteristics of the products being handled; the shape and layout of the facility; and the peak and average volumes required.
After sorting, parcels are ready for loading at the outgoing docks and onward transportation to their final destination. Vanderlande’s extendable conveyors can be used for ergonomic and efficient vehicle loading.

Sortation of smalls and flyers

Vanderlande offers a complete range of line and loop sorters to suit individual needs. The optimum system depends on the different sizes, weights, and kinds of products that are being handled. Other important factors to be considered are the required capacity and the size and shape of the main operations building.


Vanderlande’s COMPAXORTER provides a highly flexible solution to handle a wide range of products, from very small packages (as thin as 2mm) through to larger parcels (up to dimensions of 410 x 500 x 410mm and weighing 10kg), with a capacity of over 10,000 parcels per hour. This range of products also includes items that are traditionally difficult to sort with other systems, such as shrink-wrapped products, odd-shaped parcels, and unstable packages.
In addition, the closed surface and positive sorting action result in extremely high accuracy, and various detection devices prevent typical sorting errors caused by operators. Due to the linear design, the COMPAXORTER can be fitted into confined spaces.  


Vanderlande offers a range of CROSSORTERs, including the 700, 1200 and 1500 varieties. These systems provide highly flexible solutions to handle products up to 1,500 x 800mm (including odd-shaped items) with an availability of 99.9%.\

The main characteristics are:
  • full product range with a single sorter
  • up to 18,000 carriers per hour
  • parts are extremely easy to change within 5 minutes.

The company is committed to using materials in a way that ensures their return into technical or biological cycles. The CROSSORTER is built using sustainable materials that are safe and healthy for both humans and the environment.
