Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1894637A1] The system has circulating stack areas (SG1 - SGx) for receiving a large letter (G) delivered in any sequence, and end stations (E1 - Ey) classified according to destination addresses. A controller (7) is arranged and operated such that the letters are transferred from the area (SGu) to the station (Eo) to which the address of the letter is assigned. Letter stack areas (SB1 - SBz) are provided for letters (B). Another controller (8) is arranged and operated such that the letters (G) are transferred from the area (SBk) to the station (Er) to which the address of the letters (B) is assigned. An independent claim is also included for a method for sorting letters and large letters.
