Rusmail Conveyor Systems & OCA’s handling solution helps Next keep its delivery promise

To keep pace with a major expansion of its online retail operations in Doncaster, Next tasked Rusmail Conveyor Systems & OCA* to develop a solution for handling sacks of parcels ready for despatch to its stores and customers’ homes.

The resulting overhead conveyor system equates to over a mile of conveyors capable of loading, sorting and directing the sacks to specific off-loading points to enable fulfilment of the promise for orders placed before 9pm to be delivered the next day.

Rusmail worked in close collaboration with OCA its French partner which supplied the overhead conveyor. This is the first time Next has used this type of conveyor.

The project covered the design, fabrication, installation and commissioning of 6 conveyor loops of varying lengths each with a cable driven overhead conveyor equipped with hooks and special sack recognition devices. The bespoke system also incorporated automatic unloading systems, stainless steel drop-off chutes and fully integrated PLC based inverter speed control systems.
