How can automated forklifts optimise your warehouse?

Whether you’re a logistics provider or working in production, the automation of certain processes can add a new dimension of productivity. This can be done by automating processes of everyday load handling; or a complete system conversion for large operations.

Have a look at the top 5 benfits for automation in your warehouse.

Optimise your flow of goods 

Automation contributes to a consistent workflow with efficient driving behaviour. Intelligent order and fleet software minimises transport distance and avoids clustering, improving productivity in your operations, 24/7. 

 

Increase the safety

Automated trucks are equipped with state-of-the-art safety laser scanners which detect any obstacle and stop when needed. This secures a safe working environment, even when working closely to humans.

Minimise damage

The highly accurate navigation and detection systems of automated warehouse forklifts will avoid causing damage to your goods, infrastructure and trucks. Which will also decrease your damage and service cost

Optimise your use of staff

By having automated trucks doing the repetitive work, your workers become available to handle more complex tasks with added value.

Increase your energy efficiency

Charging of these trucks can be done automatically with Lithium-ion batteries, which don’t require any maintenance or human involvement.
