Development of technology for a up, down, right and left adjustable conveyor system to reduce labor intensity for loading and unloading parcels

Government department concerned

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport

Overview of the technology

It is a technology for a conveyor system that moves upwards, downwards, leftwards and rightwards to reduce labor intensity for loading and unloading parcels.

Composition of the system

3 modules in total; front conveyor(pivoting conveyor), middle conveyor, rear conveyor

Needs for the technology

  • Rapidly growing parcel volumes due to the strong growth of e-commerce, etc.
  • Increasing demand for fast and accurate delivery service
  • Increasing demand to improve issues of high dependency on human labor and injuries due to high labor intensity when loading and unloading parcels
  • Need for improving parcel processing speed which is limited due to manual work by workers
