Siemens Logistics will be exhibiting at MODEX, live and in-person for the first time in two years. Visitors will have the opportunity to find out more about Siemens’ new Visicon Compact, along with other innovative products and digital services. Along with increasing the efficiency of parcel sorting systems, the focus is also on the maximally digitized shipping process.
Siemens Logistics has developed the Visicon Compact, yet another addition to its product portfolio for parcel sorting centers. The new variant of the proven Visicon singulation technology boasts a very small footprint of less than seven square meters. The intelligent solution can be integrated quickly and flexibly into the layout of both new and existing systems.
Siemens Logistics was awarded a new contract by GLS Spain, one of the leading parcel companies in the country. The order includes the design, integration, and commissioning of parcel sorting technology for GLS’ new logistics center in Madrid. Siemens Logistics will integrate several high-efficiency Visicon singulators, two kilometers of conveyor belt, a linear sorter system, and state-of-the-art software.
Siemens has reached an agreement to sell the mail and parcel business of Siemens Logistics GmbH to the Körber Group. With this transaction, approved by the Managing and Supervisory Boards of Siemens AG, Siemens is further implementing the rigorous sharpening of its portfolio as a focused technology company.
Siemens Logistics has launched VarioPick, a state-of-the-art robotics solution for parcel sorting centers. At high speed and with maximum precision, VarioPick identifies pre-defined consignments and picks them fully automatically from a moving 2D or 3D parcel stream.
Siemens Logistics has further developed the globally proven Visicon. The singulation technology now achieves peak values of up to 18,000 items per hour. It is capable of processing a broad range of shipments in regard to size, format and packaging materials – including polybags.
Siemens Logistics has developed Parcel Data Hub, a central platform that breaks up data silos caused by various sorting equipment and IT systems in parcel sorting facilities. The platform integrates and standardizes data sets of items, assets, and processes. It provides comprehensive, semantic data models for any type of analytics application – all in real time and end to end.

Siemens Logistics is bringing to market the world’s first Misplaced Item Clearer (MIC) for cross-belt sorters in parcel sorting centers. The innovative device uses sensors to detect items that, due to their small size and low weight, are inadvertently positioned in between cross-belts. MIC automatically removes them using compressed air and moves them into an outlet.
Siemens Logistics is bringing to the market a new variant of its tried-and-tested VarioRoute for flow splitting in parcel sorting centers. Thanks to this enhancement, splitting parcel flows, filtering out rejected parcels or rerouting consignments can be tailored to specific customer requirements.
