FORTNA, a leading global software, consulting, and engineering firm, has teamed up with Budbee, a tech company based in Sweden, to improve customer delivery experiences through the introduction of an automated parcel system. The system includes a novel sorting solution and is installed in Budbee’s new terminal located in Jönköping, Sweden.
The advanced sorting system is based on a shoe sorter design and includes a loop functionality specifically engineered to handle the transportation of products such as cardboard boxes and bagged items. It is expected that the system will have a throughput capacity of hundreds of thousands of parcels per day, with several outfeeds that service destinations for both Budbee and Instabox under a new parent company, Instabee. This cutting-edge solution is adaptable and scalable, making it possible to extend the system and increase throughput to meet rising demand.
Jonathan Kruisselbrink, the Director of Sales at FORTNA, emphasized that the company is dedicated to supporting its customers’ competitiveness and relevance to their clients by leveraging its industry expertise and capabilities. He expressed satisfaction with FORTNA’s involvement in Budbee’s mission, noting that “the facility will contribute to an overall operational improvement of the customer’s parcel environment.”
The innovative sorting solution is fully operational and geared towards delivering efficient and quick service to customers. Fredrik Nyström, Nordic General Manager of Instabee, noted, “We are happy to be working with FORTNA and the operational advantages it will give us. This will help us to serve Budbee and Instabox customers even more efficiently.”
