VanRiet-Commited to maximize your uptime_2017

Nothing beats a proven track record

Reliable, innovative and easy-to-maintain solutions DocData, e-fulfilment at its best


With a client portfolio that includes Zalando, de Bijenkorf, and House of Fraser, DocData is one of the market leaders in e-fulfilment. To meet increasing e-commerce demands, DocData has implemented an innovative sorting solution in its multi-user warehouse in Waalwijk (NL). In the dynamic world of e-commerce, downtime is a definite no-go. Cut-off times are high and availability is key.


After analyzing the challenges with the client, VanRiet developed a reliable, high-capacity sorting solution, using its own HC Sorter as the sorter of choice. Being a modular solution, it can align with and adapt to the projected growth in e-commerce. The closed deck eliminates most of the noise emission and ensures that no dirt or cartons get stuck between the slats, thus maximizing uptime.


After the order-picking process, the products continue to different packing stations, from where they are transported to the sorting area. The HC sorter then sorts the parcels or polybags to 1 of 35 exits at a speed of up to 3 meters per second.
