Kern strengthens offering to mailing marketPosted on 27 October 2011
Kern Ltd has signed a partner agreement with automated technology manufacturer The Automation Group to distribute its innovative new iCart materials handling solution exclusively.
The iCart is a cutting edge product for the mailing industry. It removes the need for operators to manoeuvre heavy pallets around the mailroom and can work 24 hours a day without having to take breaks, greatly improving productivity and reducing labour costs.
The iCart is a robotic guided vehicle system which eliminates the need for manually operated logistics systems and provides a way to move materials directly around the mail room with no operator involvement.
The product can be used alongside systems such as the recently launched Kern 60 envelope sorter, which stacks envelopes into postal trays, to both deliver raw materials to the system and take away the finished postal trays. iCart works by using radio frequency ID tags located around the mail room to enable it to determine the route it should follow to deliver or collect materials from a variety of locations.
We believe the iCart is potentially the next revolution in mailing industry and we are delighted to have the exclusive rights to sell the product to the market. This is our first partnership with The Automation Group and we are delighted to be working with the company.

“Thank you for the excellent service received by Kern. From quotation to commissioning of the shrink wrapper, the project was handled very professionally, I was impressed by Marks handling of the project management and by the customer focus displayed by all Kern staff I came into contact with. The commissioning went without a hitch and the machine operated exactly as expected.” “Thank you again and I hope we can do business in the future.” Iain Jamieson E&O Laboratories
