Croatian Post opts for Pitney Bowes mail sortation systems
Croatian Post’s new mail sorting centres in Zagreb and Split are using systems from Pitney Bowes.
According to a statement sent by Pitney Bowes to Post&Parcel, the systems are automating the sortation process for as many as 2.5 million postal items per day.
“Pitney Bowes is proud to partner with the Croatian Post to deliver world-class sortation solutions that will provide the efficiency and accuracy required to expand their operations and deliver greater value to their customers,” said Grant Miller, President of Pitney Bowes Document Messaging Technologies.
“The new operating centers in Zagreb and Split are excellent examples of technology and innovation at work. Both centres are able to sort postal items at an astonishing speed, but even more importantly, they are able to ensure the accuracy and integrity of each piece.”
Both processing centres feature the Pitney Bowes Vantage Sorter with Pitney Bowes’ Business Logic Processing (BLP) software and CEN Interface. In addition, the main sorting centre in Zagreb integrates the Pitney Bowes VariSort Mixed Mail Sorter to process mail, flats and small parcels. These integrated systems, which uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology for increased read rates based on Croatian post formats and characters, provide high accuracy, document integrity and security at a rate of 230,000 items per hour.
“We are very satisfied with the level of service and have established a very good partnership with Pitney Bowes,” said Croatian Post CEO Ivan Culo. “We were looking for the best sorting solution available to replace our existing systems, which we could no longer operate and maintain with the sufficient level of security. Pitney Bowes has extensive experience and knowledge of postal business in general and all aspects of mail sorting, which has proved very valuable to us. Our new sorting systems are quicker and more reliable and help ensure timely delivery even during our peak loads of 2.5 million mail items a day. This new technology will enable us to be more efficient, while ensuring document integrity and security. I look forward to future cooperation with Pitney Bowes.”
“This is the first phase of our partnership with the Croatian Post, and we look forward to working together to further support their growing parcel volumes,” added Miller.
