The future of logistics is cooperation and ease. In a modern warehouse, flexibility, efficiency and the best value for investment are achieved by working together as a team of various vehicle types and people.
An uncomplicated one-shop-stop solution, where everything is delivered as a complete package from a single provider, is easy to acquire and implement while knowing that every detail is made to work as a complete solution for your specific needs. Sounds appealing? Good news: The future is already here!
Building your dream team
When building functional logistics, one must have a reliable team where AGVs and manually operated forklifts each work on processes that are best fitted for them and cover each other’s shifts, where suited, to offer maximal flexibility to peak demand. This way, you can implement the perfect combination of different skill sets, each mastering their own field and playing for the win as a team and as an investment.
In practice, this means harmonious interaction between AGVs and manual operations, where they seamlessly communicate with each other and share the tasks defined by each process and its key requirements. This is enabled by FleetController, an intelligent system software solution that connects all components needed to run and manage efficient operations.
We at Logisnext Solutions call this optimal automation, where human-based work processes and automation-based material flow control and optimisation are all combined as a single solution defined by your needs. Easy, functional and cost-efficient!
ACT (Automated Compact Truck) is the newest addition to our AGV family, allowing us to offer our customers an even more versatile product range. ACT is a team player by definition.
By signalling its status with lights and sounds, ACT makes the warehouse work safer and more efficient. It meets the ISO 3691-4 safety standard requirement and is equipped with comprehensive safety features, such as 360° safety fields and side clearance monitoring. Proximity detection allows AGVs, forklifts and people with tags to detect each other even without a direct line of sight, making the vehicle slow down and stop if necessary. The new touchscreen on the vehicle is highly responsive; it has fast haptics and excellent visibility from different angles. With instructive colour-coded information, the conveying information is quick and clear. LED fins on both sides of the vehicle act as turn signals and show the state of ACT from a distance for better communication with warehouse personnel.
“ACT is designed with optimal automation in mind. Optimal automation ensures that the transport equipment fleet is right-sized and meets the variation in transport capacity demands. When the material flow is shared between AGVs and forklifts, our customers get the maximum capacity of the fleet and remain agile and flexible. The right-sized fleet amount also means the best value for the investment,” says Kari Johansson, Solutions Management Director at Logisnext Solutions.
