It also marks their entry into the parcel sortation business in India. With a strong focus on innovation, our transformational solutions have already made us leaders in India, and our partnership with Pitney Bowes will help us expand globally. We are excited to develop newer technologies and automations that will benefit customers across the world.”

We get access to key customers that Armstrong has, a readymade system to serve them and get not only a price advantage but the much-needed tech support in a market like India.”
Pitney Bowes-Armstrong also recently installed TrueSort, a fully automated parcel sorting solution at Gati-KWE, one of the major express distribution and supply chain solutions provider.
After last month’s partnership with BEUMER Group to build India’s first fully automated high-speed cross belt sorting system for the Future Group, this is Armstrong’s second big move.
