Demand for Autonomous Forklifts Increase During Pandemic According to Global AGV

Autonomous forklifts are seeing an increasing demand by essential manufacturers during the pandemic who demand automation for largely repetitive and routine processes, according to Nic Temple VP of U.S. Sales at Global AGV. The recent AutomationMedia article can be read here

According to Temple, “Some of the key advantages of autonomous forklifts are critical during the pandemics. A single unit offers a dynamic flexibility, scalability, and reliability that may allow compliance with safety requirements avoiding contamination. Automation reduces product damage and alleviates the ergonomic impact of repetitive, physically demanding tasks in today’s highly-complex manufacturing operations. 

Fewer than 2% of forklifts sold in North America are automated, yet there has never been a greater need for this technology. Many manufacturers are looking to automate material handling processes because it reduces the potential for COVID-19 exposure by reducing human contact. Though predicted years ago, COVID-19 has made autonomous forklifts an immediate reality for small footprint manufacturing facilities.

About Global AGV:

A single Global AGV unit offers dynamic flexibility, scalability, and reliability that allows compliance with safety requirements avoiding contamination. Automation reduces product damage and alleviates the ergonomic impact of repetitive, physically demanding tasks in today’s highly-complex manufacturing operations.

Forklifts will be replaced every 5 – 7 years. A manufacturer currently operating just a few units will exchange the next forklift purchase in 2020 with an autonomous forklift to discover the true value that automation can bring to the operation. Autonomous forklifts provide automation which reduces movement costs per pallet and per case. 

Global AGV driverless autonomous forklifts offer a straightforward interface solution: a simple point to point horizontal movement of pallets, offering the opportunity of buying only 1 or 2 units at a time. The breakthrough is selling an automated forklift as a product rather than a project. If the manufacturer wants a turnkey solution, a local network of system integrators is available. Global AGV customers order a standard product which can be delivered in weeks. Local partner integrators help to ensure a low-cost quick installation in just days rather than months.
