Organizations receive documents via delivery service, mail and fax transmission. Most often these documents must be sorted for placement into personnel mail slots, or, sorted for placement into existing file folders.
Rolling tub file carts can be equipped with hanging file folders that are indexed alphabetically or numerically, or by subject, for organizing incoming documents for delivery to mail slots or for placement into file folders.
There are also desktop document sorters than enable sorting of documents.
Sorting documents upon receipt enables organization for systematic sequence so that documents can be routed with one rotation through mail slots or filing systems for efficient on-walk processing of documents.
