Press release : Neopost Installs Fourth Pilot CVP-500, an Automated Fit-to-Size Parcel Creator
The CVP-500 creates, fills, folds and labels boxes of various shapes and sizes, optimizing parcel dimensions and saving costs.
Neopost, the number two global provider of mailing solutions and major player in digital communications and shipping solutions, continues to develop innovative ideas to meet the new demands created by the rapid growth in e-commerce. Designed to handle parcels of different sizes, the CVP-500 enables users to create fit-to-size parcels in one seamless process. Users simply place their items on the conveyor belt and the machine takes care of the rest. This parcel creator is aimed at B2B and B2C e-commerce companies and third party logistics providers. It was first installed in the Netherlands, at the Dutch fulfillment company Docdata, in September 2013.
This automated fit-to-size packing system was recently installed at The Label Collective Group (TLCG), a Dutch B2B supplier specialized in the production and online sales of labels and stickers. TLCG, located in Haaksbergen in the Netherlands, hosts three different web shops offering printed and blank labels. It supplies labels and stickers to twenty thousand customers all over Europe.
The success of this 4th installation marks the end of the pilot phase of the project and the machine will be officially launched in other countries in early 2016. The CVP-500 is a solution from Neopost Shipping, the Neopost division dedicated to developing and providing parcel shipping and tracking offers.
Parcel Delivery for Different Shapes and Sizes
The company ships labels on a roll in various shapes, sizes and amounts. And as TLCG offers its customers next-day delivery, operations require automated processes for packaging. After reading about the CVP-500 in De Telegraaf, the leading national newspaper in the Netherlands, the company got in touch with Neopost.
After a live demonstration at another pilot customer TLCG was convinced of the value of the machine and decided to integrate the CVP-500 into its own operations.
Automated Process for Future Shipping Needs
TLCG’s business is rapidly growing and its future business development is based on providing a perfectly fitting box for each and every order. The company aims to be market leader in the Netherlands and Europe. Its order delivery commitment is based on being ready for shipment within an eight-hour period after order acceptance. Automation is key to the company’s future growth and the operational simplicity and productivity of the CVP-500 made it the ideal choice.
