Flowsort merges with FATH Group
16th December 2022
Flowsort has recently merged with the global FATH Group to help intralogistics system integrators and conveyor system manufacturers around the globe directly access Flowsort’s products.
FATH says it is very successful with components for aluminium profile system construction and with solutions for lean processes on the industrial shopfloor. Intralogistics system integrators will now have access to these solutions from a single source through the connection of FATH and Flowsort and thus be able to bring more productivity to the intralogistics sector.
Consumers have now come to expect same- or next-day delivery not only from e-commerce and retail giants but from other small and medium-sized sellers as well. This consumer expectation is pushing many e-commerce businesses to move their distribution centres closer to cities and create micro-fulfilment centres for delivering products to the consumer at a faster pace.
Flowsort supports e-commerce businesses
While e-commerce businesses need to optimise their product delivery speed from fulfilment centres to consumers, they also need to optimise the product movement within the distribution centre itself. Flowsort, which describes itself as one of the top-10 warehouse automation innovators, has developed a range of modular and automated sortation systems which are an integral part of intralogistics automation.
Flowsort distributes these modular sortation solutions to e-commerce and 3PL businesses through intralogistics system integrators and conveyor belt manufacturers. The modular design of the Flowsort sorting equipment allows system integrators and conveyor manufacturers to purchase the sorting modules that fit their clients’ unique requirements.
From there, system integrators can add extra modules to their clients’ intralogistics systems to meet future needs, offering continuous scalability while keeping the initial investment much lower.
