Automated Mobile Transportation is a Necessity

Employee resources are limited. Using valuable staff to perform low-value tasks, like material transport, is a costly and inefficient way to do business. The use of automated mobile transportation vehicles, such as autonomous robots, in a warehouse, distribution center, or manufacturing facility to transport goods and materials within the facility have become a necessity.

Automated Mobile Transportation

Automated mobile transportation systems can increase efficiency, reduce errors, and lower costs. They can also be integrated with other technologies, such as inventory management systems and automated picking and packing systems, to create a highly efficient and streamlined operation.

  • s-icon2 Increased Efficiency: Move goods around the facility faster and more efficiently than manual labor, reducing the time needed to complete tasks and improving overall productivity.
  • s-icon1 Improved Safety:  Risk of accidents involving forklifts or other manual handling equipment can be minimized, creating a safer working environment for employees.
  • seamless-icon3 Costs Savings: Reduce labor costs and improve the utilization of warehouse space, as the vehicles can work continuously without the need for breaks or rest periods.
  • More options and benefits icon Higher Accuracy: Programmed to move goods with precision, ensuring they are placed in the correct location and reducing the risk of errors that can lead to delays or damaged goods.

How and Where Are Automated Mobile Transportation Technology Used?

AGVs and AMRs increase efficiency and reduce costs by automating material movement in warehousing/distribution and manufacturing. They handle a broad variety of materials and are ideal applications characterized by:
  • Regular delivery of stable loads
  • Medium throughput and volume rates
  • Processes that critically require on-time deliveries and accurate material tracking
  • Frequent, repetitive movement of materials over a distance
