Using Mobile Transportation (AMRs or AGVs) for Warehouse Logistics
In most organizations, employee resources are limited. Using valuable staff time to perform low-value tasks, like materials transportation, is a costly way to do business. Warehouse transportation solutions such as AMRs or AGVs offer innovative solutions for restructuring warehouse needs and improving efficiency.
As more warehouses move toward Industry 4.0, AGV or AMR warehouse transportation has become a necessity for improving warehouse performance.

Warehouse Transportation Solutions Available From KPI
Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs)
Autonomous Mobile Robots use integrated sensors to move materials without guides or markers. AMRs learn the environment throughout use and can dynamically plot its path from one waypoint to another without manual programming needs. AMR warehouse solutions offer flexibility and can selectively identify the best path based on conditions and requirements.
Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs)
Automated Guided Vehicles are industrial machines programmed to transport goods throughout a warehouse of manufacturing environment. AGV warehouse solutions are guided by navigation guides permanently installed on the warehouse floor. If your warehouse is unlikely to change, both in terms of layout and workflow, AGVs may be a good fit for your operations.
