About Vecna Logistics
Due to the high cost of entry, automated guided vehicles (AGVs) were only found in warehouses, automotive assembly plants, and other operations with large amounts of floor space. With the help of Vecna Logistics (http://logistics.vecna.com) recent advancements have made the machines more appealing to small- and mid-sized manufacturers in a wide variety of industries.
According to John Hayes, Pros to Know thought-leader and Vice President for Vecna Logistics, companies are investing in AGVs to improve plant-floor efficiency and reduce operating cost. As the flexible technology is now more affordable and easier to use on assembly lines, many smaller manufacturers and single location distribution centers are deploying driverless carts, robotic parts bins, and autonomous tuggers. Manufacturing engineers have best-practice lean manufacturing solutions which are driving prices down making these solutions available to everyone.
According to MHI, an AGV is a driverless vehicle which consists of one or more computer-controlled, wheel-based load carrier which comes in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, and styles.
With e-commerce exploding and customer expectations on the rise, distribution and fulfillment centers as well as third party logistics (3PLs) providers need an innovative way to reduce costs and increase throughput.
