BEUMER Group's CEP Software Suite is the trusted choice for leading Courier, Express & Parcel operators worldwide who are looking to boost performance, streamline operations, and unlock the full potential of their parcel handling systems.

Our advanced software optimizes the entire process for your CEP operations, ensuring intelligent parcel identification, seamless integration, precise material flow control, and comprehensive supervision across the entire sortation system. Simultaneously, our critically important maintenance tools, thorough training, and accurate simulation and emulation capabilities empower you to achieve and maintain high-capacity throughput.

The result is an innovative and user-friendly solution that minimizes errors, maximizes productivity, and revolutionizes your CEP operations.


With a lifespan of over 20 years when actively maintained, BEUMER Group’s Sortation System is a future-proof investment for your CEP operations. Likewise, our Software Suite incorporates Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Neural Networks, heat maps, and 3D visualizations to provide configurable virtual desktops, predictive maintenance forecasting, real-time flow visualization, and intuitive graphical layouts of your operations.

Our Sortation System and Software Suite seamlessly combine to provide you with a complete solution that empowers you to tackle future challenges head-on and capitalize on opportunities arising from ever-changing consumer habits.

  • Enhanced sortation logic is the key driver behind improvements in operation efficiency, and helps to boost the performance of the entire sorting process. Our Legal for Trade certified equipment also ensures revenue protection by capturing and storing barcode scanner images, whilst the visual confirmation of a parcel’s condition and location facilitates the handling of any customer claims.

    Tools such as BEUMER Optical Character Recognition (OCR), BEUMER Video Coding System (VCS), and BEUMER Parcel Intelligence use sophisticated AI models and high-resolution images to minimize the manual handling of parcels, which contributes significantly to streamlining sorting operations and reducing costs.

CEP software & data

CEP operations generate an increasing amount of data from an expanding number of sources, but data is only useful if it is analysed and understood properly. At BEUMER Group, we have extensive experience of working with data and have used these learnings to extend our services to the predictive and prescriptive level. BEUMER’s digital capability offers a growing suite of data-driven services to enable employees at the maintenance, operational, and management levels to make better-informed decisions.



Data Visualisation

When working with data, organisations sometimes focus solely on the collection of data, and miss out on the outcome of working with data. At BEUMER Group, we believe that the value of data lies in the decisions it leads to. To make data relatable we work with data visualisation on a number of different abstraction layers:

  • The most complex and challenging layer is the dashboard layer, which on one side allows users to mine data and reach a deep understanding of different cases, but on the other hand also requires a certain system insight and analytical approach.
  • To support users in navigating the noise, we offer a number of translations, such as Strategic KPI’s, OEE’s, Sustainability Index and process overview, each designed to provide users with a simple overview.
  • To complete the visualisation package, we offer a digital twin — which turns the layout into a storyteller. The FLOW Twin by BEUMER Group provides visualisation of flow and data in real-time as well as historical data, and provides an easy and intuitive understanding of a complex system.

Our CEP value proposition

The key components to accomplishing the strategic ambition for your CEP operations are an overall efficient and reliable software solution, a flexible and expandable framework, data transparency, and a professional user experience for different user groups. Our CEP value proposition offers a differentiated position in the market as we focus on teams, tools, and systems:

SW & Data Solutions

The Software & Data solutions provided by BEUMER Group act as the interface between the physical system and the users operating, maintaining, and managing it. To enable users to make faster and better decisions, visualisation of data is provided at different abstraction layers ranging from dashboards to the digital twin. Data transparency is crucial to understanding current performance and optimising for the future. The Software & Data solution therefore includes the ability to share data with existing BI solutions.

O&M team

A professional user experience gives your organisation’s CEP professionals, who work within maintenance, operations and management, the right tools and the right views to enable them to not only excel in their respective jobs, but also to have a lean O&M team.

When linking the CEP System, Software & Data Solutions, and the O&M Team, organisations achieve what we call Data-Driven Asset Management.

Data DRIVEN asset management

Understanding and working with data are extremely valuable tools.  This is particularly important in view of the CEP system’s key role in achieving and maintaining high-capacity throughput that maximizes productivity whilst minimizing errors.

These are among the drivers that put pressure on how a CEP system is maintained, operated, and managed. With this in mind, BEUMER Group has established a data warehouse to which data is streamed in real-time from a growing number of sites.


A partnership with BEUMER GROUP

Selecting the right solution also involves selecting the right CEP software partner to work with.

At BEUMER Group, our partnerships are built on these pillars:

  • A professional implementation of your project is key to delivering critical infrastructure. At BEUMER Group, our processes are certified according to the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Level 3 framework and our Project Managers are Project Management Institute (PMI) certified. This means that each project is managed in a transparent, timely and professional manner.
  • Given the increased levels of cyber security threats, keeping your HLC system safe is more important than ever. At BEUMER Group, we integrate cyber security right from the design phase, and our software solutions follow the IEC 62443 standards. We are also certified according to ISO 27001 as an organization, and certified by TÜV according to the industry security standard IEC 62443-4-1 for Secure development of Lifecycle processes for Software Solutions Project execution.
  • The right solution should also be able to pave the way for future improvements. Our Software Suite is in its sixth generation and builds on decades of operational experience – it is always updated and expanded according to our product roadmap. In this way, your system stays young and relevant as the CEP industry’s needs change over time.
