Logistics BusinessVanderlande Secures Record Orders Worth €1.4 billion

Vanderlande has announced record orders valued at €1.4 billion in 2015. These cover its integrated solutions in a range of markets, in which warehouse automation and parcel and postal markets play a significant role alongside airport baggage handling expertise. The figures represent an increase of up to €400 million compared to the previous year’s order intake of €1 billion.

The rapidly expanding warehouse automation market has seen a significant level of new business for the Dutch company in the food retail sector. The company’s systems enable fully automated case picking (ACP) across a wide range of products. This is facilitated by the company’s load forming logic (LFL) software, which automatically builds pallets or roll cages in the same sequence of product groups as a store’s layout.

These orders have been attracted from such leading chains as Albert Heijn (The Netherlands), E. Leclerc (France), Consum (Spain), Cencosud (Chile), and some large Asia-Pacific food retailers. In addition, Zalando and Wurth are extending their existing automated warehouse system.

In the fast-growing parcel and postal market, Vanderlande has reconfirmed its leading position and has further developed its business with the leading international parcel delivery companies. Among the new orders secured by the company in this highly competitive sector are FedEx, SF Express (China) and DHL Leipzig (part of Deutsche Post DHL).
