Siemens installs open mail sorting systems for New Zealand Post

Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics (SPPAL) has equipped New Zealand Post’s largest mail sorting centers with its new Open Mail Handling Systems (OMS) for flats sorting.

Installed at hubs in Auckland and Christchurch, the OMS can process up to 25,000 magazines, flats, small parcels, letters and postcards every hour. The solution is capable of automatically handling a wide range of mail types, such as open or plastic-wrapped magazines, which previously had to be sorted manually.

Vanessa Ellis, general manager, network transformation of New Zealand Post, said, “We’re very satisfied with the cooperative way this project has been implemented. Siemens’s high-performance technology enables us to process a very large range of mail types and formats processed in New Zealand, significantly enhancing our efficiency. The systems are connected to statistics software that allows us to monitor system capacity utilization, providing a constant overview that lets us respond rapidly to changes.”

Michael Reichle, CEO of SPPAL, said, “We’re delighted to have had the opportunity to deliver our OMS to New Zealand Post, a system proven worldwide that meets our customer’s high requirements in terms of efficiency, flexibility, ergonomics and customized solutions. The OMS can process a broader range of mail types and formats than any other sorting system on the market.”

As part of the project, SPPAL implemented a network management software package that enables New Zealand Post to act flexibly, even with volatile mail volumes. This enables all mail sorting to be controlled across all sorting locations. New Zealand Post’s previous sorting machines will also be integrated into the overall system.
