What is Sorting?

A material handling system that is used to classify items depending on where they need to be sent is known as a sorting system. Warehouses and distribution centers are usually equipped with sorting systems where random flows of items are sorted into orders for shipping. The parameters for sorting depend on its application within the supply chain. For example retail companies sort the items per store while courier companies sort them by postal codes for outbound orders.

Locus helps with automated parcel sorting which reduces human dependency and errors. Every shipment is automatically assigned to the most optimal delivery route and the rider best suited for it. Routes provided by Locus can be printed on the shipping label to eliminate manual dependence.
