July 27, 2022

Conveyor systems are the backbone of many manufacturing sectors such as e-commerce, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, warehouse distribution and even parcel service. Furthermore, depending on the industry, the conveyor belts and systems also differ in their properties and functionality.


Thus, it is evident that the role of parcel conveyors is drastically different from the rest. The importance of these conveyors in the parcel-handling industry and a few excellent conveyor models will be examined below.


Salient features and applications of parcel conveyors


Role of Parcel Conveyors

Most posts and parcels leave their source location and are transferred to a parcel processing facility before being shipped to their destination. Due to the ever-increasing demands to process the huge volume of parcels swiftly and efficiently, the onus is on parcel conveyors to get the job done. Fortunately, they are designed for this exact purpose, offering state-of-the-art material handling solutions for both ground-based and air-based delivery services.


Here are a few undeniable benefits of parcel conveyors:

  • Constant material-handling capability
  • Increased production throughput
  • Ability to handle versatile packages irrespective of weight and size
  • Precise automation with room for manual sortation
  • Extremely durable and capable of handling any volume
  • Adjustable speed depending on workload
