Sorting at its Best

Parcel Sorting Technology

FirstMile uses industry leading parcel sorting technology to process up to 10,000 packages per hour at every FirstMile sorting facility.

Shipments that are routed to a FirstMile sorting facility are further broken down into regions to access additional cost savings for our customers and expedite the sorting process.

Our state-of-the-art sorting machines automatically and efficiently place packages in their designated locations, facilitating immediate linehaul, zone skip, and partner carrier induction. By optimizing the sorting process, we enable a seamless transition from collection to transportation, saving valuable time and resources for our customers.

The delivery was slippery quick! My package came way sooner than I had been planning on! Grateful to have had a nice looking, not destroyed, all in one piece package arrive at my doorstep! Thanks First Mile here’s to many more miles of deliveries! πŸ˜‰
