OPEX® Corporation Named 2024 Sortation System Innovation of the Year by SupplyTech Breakthrough

OPEX® Corporation, a global leader in Next Generation Automation for warehouse, document and mail automation, has been selected by the SupplyTech Breakthrough Awards program as the winner of the 2024 Sortation System Innovation of the Year Award for OPEX Sure Sort® X with OPEX Xtract™.

This annual awards program is conducted by SupplyTech Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that evaluates and recognizes standout technology companies, products and services in the supply chain technology and logistics industry around the globe.

OPEX Sure Sort X with OPEX Xtract, introduced in March 2024, represents the next generation of high-speed automated sortation and order retrieval solutions. It is a fully adaptable, turnkey offering designed to automate numerous manual tasks with a simple, one-touch approach.

“We’re honored to receive this prestigious award from SupplyTech Breakthrough,” said Alex Stevens, President of Warehouse Automation at OPEX. “Our goal in developing Sure Sort X with Xtract was to meet the evolving demands of the marketplace by delivering one integrated solution that sorts, retrieves, and dispenses items into a shipping container, without the intervention of a human operator. We’re incredibly proud that our teams’ unique and powerful solution has been recognized as the 2024 Sortation System Innovation of the Year.”

This year’s SupplyTech Breakthrough Awards program attracted thousands of nominations from over 15 different countries around the world.

“OPEX’s solutions significantly increase overall efficiency and directly address ongoing labor challenges. With the difficulty of attracting and retaining staff, automated sortation systems help to address this challenge while also improving workflows, from product arrival to sorting for picking, packaging, and shipping,” said Bryan Vaughn, Managing Director of SupplyTech Breakthrough Awards. “With OPEX Sure Sort X with Xtract, our Sortation System Innovation of the Year, the future of warehouse automation has arrived.”

OPEX Sure Sort X is a versatile and robust industrial sorting solution that can handle nearly 100% of customer-sortable items weighing up to 20 pounds (9 kilograms), and sort them into a configurable array of mixed bin sizes and types, all while maintaining a consistent throughput of up to 2,100 items per hour.

When Sure Sort X is paired with Xtract, an automated order retrieval system, the task of retrieving totes and transferring their contents into shipping containers is fully automated as well, eliminating the need to manually sort and transfer boxes downstream. Xtract can be added to any Sure Sort X system by introducing retrieval iBOTs to work in conjunction with the traditional sortation iBOTs found in Sure Sort X.

OPEX Sure Sort X with Xtract can accommodate multiple market vertical workflows and exponentially reduces the need for human interface.
