SINGAPORE, 9 FEBRUARY 2017 - GreyOrange and Ninja Van have announced the commission of their first high-speed advanced Sortation System capable of handling 6000 parcels an hour at the Singapore hub of Ninja Van, Southeast Asia's fastest growing last-mile logistics company. Recognised as one of the world's Top 50 Robotics Companies by Robotics Business Review, GreyOrange, headquartered in Singapore, specialises in the design, manufacture and deployment of advanced robotics and automation systems for distribution and fulfilment centres.

Nalin Advani, CEO, GreyOrange Asia-Pacific said, "The Linear Sorter has been tried and tested by many of Asia's leading e-commerce and logistics companies and we are proud to welcome Ninja Van to this family.  Both our companies share a similar history in recent years operating in a fast-paced logistics industry that has seen explosive growth in e-commerce and last mile delivery. We know what Ninja Van wants and are looking forward to installing the complete system within the next weeks."

Tan Bo Xian, Co-founder and COO, Ninja Van Southeast Asia said, “At Ninja Van, technology is always at the heart of everything we do, and we are always looking to optimise and automate processes to improve efficiencies. We have been studying a solution such as this since our early days, and are happy to have grown to the point where our volumes well justify the investment. The GreyOrange Sortation system allows us to operate round the clock with a much leaner team of staff, reducing labour costs significantly. We are also pleased that the line is very compact, optimising space utilisation while increasing productivity."

The proprietary embedded system of the GreyOrange Linear Sorter combines advanced software and two lines of high-speed sortation conveyors capable of sorting thousands of parcels in various shapes and sizes including polybags, plus irregular and fragile packages. The system starts at the Auto-spacer where sensors determine how the parcels are spread to ensure gaps between the parcels are even. Each parcel is then identified by 1D or 2D barcodes where both its gross and volumetric weights are automatically recorded, before it quickly moves along the high-speed conveyor which sorts the parcels according to dispatch time, destination and other parameters as determined at different times of the day, including service levels such as same-day and next-day delivery.
