The automation of logistics using automatic trolleys, transporters or belts enables an increase in productivity and, together with logistics control software, this guarantees the locating of materials in any part of the plant, as well as the sending of these materials to the required delivery points. Based around the identification of materials with bar codes or datamatrix codes, and around the requirements of production, this system sends automatic notifications to logistics operatives, aiding their work.
AGVs are more versatile tools which enable the automation of logistics, making it possible to move goods within the industrial plant, and enabling an automatic link between warehouses and processing centres. They are frequently used for loading and unloading operations involving materials in process. Through the use of AGVs it is possible to obtain highly productive facilities.
