Sandd in Utrecht, took the first 15 in a total of 169 new Volkswagen vans in use. The Crafter vans are all equipped with the unique conveyor system Vanloda. This way, the mail arrives faster, more efficient and more secure at its destination.

The drivers of 250 vans head off and make 2 deliveries a week to the deliverers of Sandd. These 10,000 postal workers ensure that the mail is delivered timely and correct on the receiver’s doormat. Because of increasing volumes, loading and unloading the van becomes increasingly intensive and laborious. The new van offers more space and the new roller system allows the driver to load the pallets quickly and efficiently. With a simple hand movement, the pallet is moved inside the bus.

The volumes per trip are the large: 3 to 4 pallets, each containing about 4000 items. The new Volkswagen vans have space for up to 4 pallets. Without specific adaptations to the bus, the rolling system is installed. With this system, the space in the bus as well as the space on pallets is being used efficiently. This will also be noticed in the area usage of the depots. Loading and unloading is faster, safer and with less risk to damaging the bus.

Vanloda is an important step for Sandd in the further professionalizing its logistics organization. The conveyor system is installed by Autohaas Company cars. After the first 15 vans for Utrecht, 10 per week will follow to a total of 169 vans. For Sandd, quality is of paramount importance. Changes in the existing processes are aimed to maintain the quality of the deliveries. A properly operating logistical organization provides efficiency and cost savings for all parties. Sustainability is also considered: the eco-drive system in the vans generates a saving of about 10%.
