US specific productRUBUS: Highest unloading rate

RUBUS is our fully automated unloading solution for parcels and packages that drives productivity to unprecedented levels. For the general spectrum of parcels, RUBUS technology is capable of sustained throughput that is five to ten times higher than manual unloading. This rate is controllable, and it can be throttled dynamically to match available system capacity.

To enable compatibility with RUBUS, an inexpensive stationary belt kit is installed into the trailer or container. The stationary belting covers the floor, parcels and packages are loaded normally on the belting, and the RUBUS draws itself along the belting to the end of the trailer or container in the process of unloading it. With the RUBUS doing the work safety is radically improved. When RUBUS is not being used to unload, such in accommodating pallet loads, the belting can simply be stowed out of the way.
