Excursion to the WE|DO SuperHUB in Ostředek
The number of packages traveling between e-shops and consumers has increased radically in the last two or three years. As a result, a robust logistics infrastructure is needed to ensure fast and reliable delivery. This infrastructure includes hubs where the packages are sorted. One such operation, known in the company as the SuperHUB, was recently opened by WE|DO. It is located in Ostředek on the D1 highway, which is the ideal place for sorting consignments from all over the country. It includes almost 50 gates, 110 m of shoe sorter conveyors, 350 m of belt conveyors, 200 m of roller conveyors and 600 m of gravity conveyors. The VanRiet automatic sorter sorts up to 12,000 pieces per hour. The hall was built by the developer UDI based on the requirements of WE|DO, and the total investment, including technology, is half a billion CZK. Due to the fact that the most interesting hours of operation are in the evening, the visit will take place on the Wednesday before the EASTLOG congress.
