The GENI-Ride™ Small Parcel Shoe Sorter is the next-generation solution for automated linear sortation of small and micro parcels. Developed as part of the Fives Linear Sorter Product Family, the GENI-Ride™ with RollerShoe™ patent pending technology, introduces a new way to ride.
Small parcel volume has increased significantly over the past ten years. Traditional parcel sorters are designed for standard 6-sided boxes with flat, non-slip surfaces. Due to their non-conveyable nature, small and micro parcels are typically sorted using manual labor, which is both costly and inefficient.
The GENI-Ride™ solves this problem by sorting ultra-light packages and poly bags with ease. The GENI-Ride™ was developed as part of our Linear Sorter Product Family, featuring rollers that directly eject parcels at the desired outfeed, providing next-generation smalls sortation.
Parcels ride on top of the RollerShoe™ and are simultaneously moved by the divert action of each shoe, ultimately pushing parcels off to output chutes on both sides. With a simplified algorithm and sortation action, the RollerShoe™ does not require pre-positioning, which means large gaps are not required between products, greatly increasing parcel throughput.
The GENI-Ride™ system offers a complete facility solution suitable for a wide range of operations in the global marketplace, including warehouse/distribution, postal, and express-courier centers. Due to its linear configuration, the system sorts bilaterally with destination pitch spacing every 28 inches.
Providing automated sortation in the smallest and densest footprint possible the GENI-Ride™ is designed for combined environmental performance and operational excellence with a capacity of up to 16,000 pph at less than 10 kW power consumption for a 400 ft (122 m) long sorter.
