Toll has deployed a fleet of 10 AGVs at its new "next generation" e-commerce fulfilment centre in NSW, Australia.

The highly specialised and customised processing and fulfilment centre, designed with Toll customer and retailer Speciality Fashion Group, is intended to enable "fast, efficient, reliable and cost-effective order fulfilment", according to media reports.

Toll has fitted out the 33,830 sqm facility with 15,600 sqm of automation equipment able to pick, process and pack 375,000 items a day.

This includes six AGVs capable of shifting two pallets at a time and four which move single pallets at a time.

The Dematic AGVs are used to move pallets from the manual areas of the warehouse to the automated areas.

"When you combine the AGVs with the introduction of other new on-site technology such as automated storage and retrieval systems and ergonomic goods-to-person picking stations, improved automation has led to a reduction in manual intervention by 70%, improving safety for the site's 200 workers," says a Toll spokesperson.
