Transnorm and Sovex –

Transnorm and Sovex – working together to achieve high levels of logistic efficiency RUBRIK CEMAT ASIA PREVIEW China is still one of the most important user markets for the intralogistics sector. A good reason for Transnorm System GmbH, based in Germany, and its subsidiary Sovex, based in England, to further strengthen its activities in the Chinese market. Transnorm and Sovex are thus presenting a wide range of products, modules and solutions at CeMAT Asia, that can be used to load and unload trucks right through to solutions for internal transport, as well as sorting and distributing fragile goods in complex and automated distribution centers while achieving high efficiency levels. China has once again recorded high levels of economic growth for the current year, making it one of the most important national economies. The logistics sector is really benefitting from this thanks to China’s high export rates and the government’s initiative to strengthen the local economy by increasingly investing in the construction of new distribution and parcel sorting centers. This is the only way the requirements of customers and suppliers for timely and correct deliveries in the desired quality can be met. This particularly applies to the booming online trade in China that has an extremely high parcel volume. Intralogistics ensures that processes within the relevant distribution centers are implemented efficiently and plays a crucial role in fulfilling the requirements along the supply chain. This process starts with loading and unloading trucks or containers using telescopic conveyors from Sovex and progresses through to conveying modules and solutions from Transnorm to manage complex and highly automated processes within the logistics center. At CeMAT Asia in Shanghai, both companies from the Transnorm Group will be presenting products and solutions that can be used to efficiently meet the logistic requirements of Chinese and Asian customers from all industrial and commercial sectors.

Transnorm and Sovex work well together With the increasing automation of distribution and parcel sorting centers, the demand for customer-orientated solutions, that must meet the highest performance and quality requirements, is also rising. The technical solutions provided by the Transnorm Group seamlessly meet the increasingly digitalized requirements of Industry 4.0. Integrators and end customers know Transnorm for its distribution and transportation modules and solutions (Image 01) that meet these exact requirements. Particular highlights include the tried and tested Transnorm belt curves, SmartSort sorter and inclined conveyor belts. The focus is often placed on solutions that are developed in conjunction with customers. Telescopic conveyors from Sovex are a perfect addition to this product range in the loading and unloading sector. An example is the Bendy Boom telescopic conveyor that is setting standards when it comes to ergonomics and flexibility. This product was developed in close collaboration with important customers in the parcel sector and illustrates just how well the corporate philosophies of Sovex and Transnorm work together. Shared customers in the telescopic conveyor sector now also benefit from the global distribution and service network of the Transnorm Group.
