Manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler recently examined the value of a single autonomous forklift as profiled in Enterprise Technology Review. Read the full article here. Cutler discussed how autonomous forklifts are ideal for small manufacturers.
Autonomous forklifts are the logical way for small and mid-sized manufacturers to tiptoe into higher technologies. Cutler noted, there are some real potential benefits that AGV technology can bring to support specific industries. The challenges in e-commerce fulfillment are different than in a packaging plant, yet both are good candidates for an autonomous forklift. Global AGV aims to target simple and intuitive interfaces to allow autonomous forklifts to be made accessible by the 49% of the market that has nine or fewer forklifts in a small fleet.
Getting decision-makers in SMEs to start with a single autonomous forklift is the first step in the process; the operations and facility managers understand that a single autonomous forklift is actually a good thing to improve quality, eliminate waste, and reduce costs.
