Large, automated eCommerce shipping system for parcel processing

Shipping System

Automate your shipping system and capture BIG postage rate savings.

Postage fees are up. But so are the number of parcels flowing through the delivery system. The way to keep costs down while increasing efficiency for your shipping system is by automating wherever possible. You can significantly reduce postage fees through our shipping automation software and parcel processing systems. 

A BlueCrest Packaging and Shipping system is a customized solution that creates a seamless interface in package flow between a client’s picking station and an automated sortation system. Goods are first grouped together for parcel processing via placement on a manual prep station by operators. These products are next run through a series of modules that gap and align them. A carton-wrapping machine takes care of weighing and dimensioning using a DWS system. This allows postage to be automatically calculated and a destination label to be printed and applied. The package is routed to a shipping destination using a sorter capable of whatever resolution best suits the client's cost model, whether it be a three-digit, five-digit, or SCF routing scheme. This type of shipping automation provides a full end-to-end solution that minimizes manpower and maximizes throughput for any shipping system.
