What could your business achieve if every parcel touchpoint was maximized for efficiency?
Automating your warehouse, distribution center, or parcel hub is not a luxury, it’s a necessity to stay competitive and profitable in today’s environment. Pressure on margins, the current labor shortage, and our growing eCommerce and Direct to Consumer (DTC) convenience economy is driving the necessity to rethink your logistics and material handling systems and order fulfillment workflow processes. Innovative automation technology can be a game changer to optimize operations, improve ergonomics for your workforce and apply real-time data capture for smart decision making.
Material Handling and Order Fulfillment Control
We help parcel and post hubs control and connect material handling software and hardware to create logical workflows and reduce material handling frictions.
E Technologies provides custom software and control solutions for new deployments and retrofits of existing equipment to extend hardware life and overall performance. Whether you need to upgrade obsolete programmable logic controllers (PLC) such as Allen Bradley’s PLC-5 to ControlLogix or you’re looking to seamlessly integrate all of your material handling technology, we can synchronize your entire pallet supply chain using best-of-breed algorithms and smart automation controls. We work with all of the top OEM brands — from motor-driven to traditional systems, as well as custom material handling hardware solutions.
We work with:
- Palletizers and Depalletizers
- Pallet conveyors
- Transportation conveyors
- Accumulation conveyors
- Vertical indexing conveyors
- Case, tote, and polybag conveyors
- Automated Storage & Retrieval System (ASRS)
- Robotic material handling and tending solutions
We customize control solutions to help your sorters work optimally while boosting your overall package streams.
Automated sortation systems reduce labor and increase efficiency, accuracy, and throughput. From simple diverters and pushers to sophisticated high-speed crossbelt sorters, the right solution needs to fit your speed requirements and the range of the products’ weight and dimensions you’re moving.
E-Technologies has decades of experience working with leading parcel operators to find the best solutions for sortation controls. Our best-in-class logistics experience helps us enable superior package flow through smart controls and integrations of a variety of sortation equipment from top OEM brands as well as custom solutions.
We work with:
- Sliding shoes (e.g. single-sided, dual-sided, HDS, etc.)
- Pop-up wheel belts and pop-up wheel strip belts
- Bomb bays
- Push trays
- Sweeper sorters
- MDR transfer conveyors
- And more!
Conveyor and Sorting Hardware
We help you find viable parcel hardware solutions to meet rising consumer and business demands.
We live in the age of 2-day and overnight shipping. Your conveyor and sorting hardware need to be able to handle an influx of packages (from large to flats) while automating core functions and reducing human touchpoints. E Technologies’ vendor-neutral insights can help you find the appropriate hardware to meet your business needs, and help you draw up a complete parcel blueprint to maximize storage density, parcel flow, and sequencing while reducing floor space and improving storage density.
Data and Analytics
Realize the value of automation with deep data insights and powerful parcel analytics.
During peak seasons, finding the people-power to support the constant influx of packages is difficult. You need solutions that reduce human touchpoints and eliminate human error. E Technologies drives automation into your material handling blueprint with data collection, attribution, and analysis to enable automation and create new areas of business opportunity.
Electrical Wiring Solutions
We make sure that your electrical infrastructure enables your operations while enhancing safety and electrical control.
High capacity parcel operations require a solid electrical infrastructure to support material handling hardware. From running wires to conduits to complex electrical engineering problems, E Technologies designs and implements optimal system requirements. In addition, with two UL508 panel shops, we provide procurement, panel design, production, and testing in house, allowing us to maintain 100% control of our projects from start to finish.

Are You Ready to Maximize Your Facility’s Potential?
“It’s nice to use E-Tech because they are independent of the brands. If we called Rockwell to service the software on our equipment, they would work on the Rockwell products but not the Siemens products, and vice-versa. When we use E-Tech we can get everything serviced with one call.”
