Dubai, December 28, 2016: Emirates Post Group’s Ramool Sorting Centre, which handles incoming and outgoing mail from across the UAE, has sorting machines that are capable of handling large or odd-size magazines and other printed publications.
The region’s most advanced mail sorting centre continues to be a beehive of activity, driven by the increasing population of the UAE and a robust business sector. Magazines and brochures form a large component of the mail sorted at the Ramool Sorting Centre. Before the installation of the new machines, the large-size magazines had to be sorted manually.
“Ramool Sorting Centre has been designed to cope with rising mail volumes, but it had the limitation of not being able to sort large-size magazines automatically,” said Acting CEO of EPG, Mr. Abdulla Alashram. “Now with the installation of new machines, we are able to sort large-size publications with speed, thus reinforcing our reputation as one of the most advanced sorting centres in the region.”
Ramool Sorting Centre receives about 20 million letters and parcels a month, about 5 million of which are international deliveries. It is equipped with advanced sorting machines that read addresses automatically and deposit mail in the appropriate slot at a very fast speed.
The sorting centre boasts automated registered mail processing, automated redirection of mail, and capacity to handle large-size envelopes and heavier mail.
“Ramool Sorting Centre, the hub of sorting operations of EPG, was designed with future needs in mind. The growing population of the UAE has resulted in higher mail volumes, both incoming and outgoing. This is contrary to the situation in most parts of the world where the mail volumes have been declining, with the popularity of the Internet and online communication,” said Mr Alashram.
Located close to the Dubai International Centre, Ramool Sorting Centre has a strong track record of speedy delivery and dispatch of incoming and outgoing mail. It is manned by highly trained staff and is supported by a fleet of vehicles that transport and collect mail from all corners of the UAE.
