Automated guided vehicles AGV: The mobile solution of the future
Swisslog has been implementing customized AGV solutions for more than 45 years. Automated guided vehicles are significantly more flexible than fixed installations, and are also demonstrably lower cost above a certain layout size.
AGV: The flexible alternative to fixed installations
Working with our AGV suppliers, we find the best automated guided vehicle solutions for your enterprise, whether it is a standard forklift, a side forklift, a counterbalanced forklift, or a straddle AGV.

Automated Guided Vehicles as mobile solution
We design your AGV system together with you. For this, the material flow, the size of the layout, the shift-model, and local conditions like slopes, bottlenecks, one-way-paths and a fire protection concept play an essential role.
We integrate our solution into your logistics landscape.
Together with Swisslog we created a distribution center that is perfectly equipped for future challenges. We can handle order throughput times of only 1 hour even with higher volumes
