Automated Guided Vehicles

Körber’s automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are designed to enable the safe and completely automated handling of goods to reduce your reliance on manual labor while optimizing your internal transport and storage systems.

Materials handling challenges

Transporting and storing goods in warehouses and distribution centers generates key challenges:

  • In the ecommerce era, more and more pallets containing products need to be transported and stored.
  • Using traditional forklift trucks driven by humans is labor-intensive, time-consuming and prone to costly mistakes.
  • Automation is essential if you’re looking to eliminate operational inefficiencies and increase productivity.

Automated guided vehicles for optimized transport and storage

Körber’s vehicles can be deployed in a wide range of different configurations such as reach truck, fork-over counterbalanced forklift, very narrow aisle, and so forth. We know that your requirements are unique and we have an AGV solution to suit you.

Autonomous navigation is achieved via laser reflection, sensors, inductive wire, magnetic strip/spots or a combination of these. It all depends on your warehouse or distribution center requirements.

From transporting goods to feeding production lines, one of the major advantages of our AGVs is that, for many applications, there is minimal need for additional infrastructure – no rails or tracks, just lasers, wires or magnets.
