Sortation Systems: Sorting Through the Options

Sortation systems come in a variety of forms—cross-belt, sliding-shoe, tilt-tray, pop-up wheel, and many others. And the factors to consider when choosing the right system for a particular operation are just as numerous. What volume must be accommodated? What kinds of products will be sorted? What kinds of packaging will be used? How much variation will there be in those factors? These are just a few of the questions buyers should ask.

Join DC Velocity Editorial Director Peter Bradley and Paul Faber, a principal with the consulting firm Tompkins Associates, as they explore the various types of sortation systems along with some of the equipment and design issues to consider when making a selection.
