Self-propelled Forklift – New trend of smart warehouse management for businesses
First of all, we must understand what a forklift is.
A forklift, also called lift truck, is a type of industrial truck used to support humans in lifting and moving cargoes, materials over short distance.
Automated forklift is unmaned vehicles which is controlled by a pre-programmed computer system.
From 2020 forth, in Vietnam, many large businesses such as Vinfast, Vinamilk, Nestle, etc. are gradually replacing human labors with robot. The use of smart warehouse system in production helps to significantly increase efficiency and productivity. “As of the time of applying automated forklift in warehouse, we have reduced 50% of labor cost. Moreover, goods control is becoming easier and safer”- Mrs Truong Bich Dao, Nestle’s human resources director, said on VnExpress.
Alibaba, the China’s leading e-commercial company, has been invested $1.5 billions for logistics system. All the works of distributing goods is done by robots and controlled by humans.
In fact, in many business, logistics management becomes more difficult and complex because of the explosive growth. The application of automated forklift together with intelligent warehouse system to manage goods minimizes labor accidents. Driving a forklift with large and bulky goods makes driver difficult to see, causing them to drive backwards for maximum visibility. It leads to many potential dangers. Besides, the use of automated forklift to lift goods on high shelves avoids the situation of dropping goods, reducing the risk of labor accidents.
This situation is completely overcome when using automated forklift.
With laser tracking technology, safety sensors around the vehicle and a payload of up to 1600kg, Meiko Automation’s automated forklift can completely replace driverless forklifts, in areas with severe weather. It will minimize labor risks and human resource costs for businesses.
Especially, our automated forklift is developed to integrate with all types of warehouses, integrate with other automated goods systems such as conveyors, elevators, etc. to create a smart warehouse system.
Meiko Automation’s motto, whatever your needs are, as long as you are determined, we will work together to make a difference.
