So, what’s the future hold?
The popularity of automated logistic solutions is forecast to continue this exciting upwards trajectory with just the AGV market alone set to nearly triple by the year 2025. It is estimated that 1 in every 4/5 trucks will be automated at this point. It’s little wonder why the popularity of AGVs has dramatically increased when you think about the USPs this sort of solution can offer:
• Fast and easy implementation
• No Infrastructure needed with the solution of Linde Material Handling
• Expandable and flexible
• Standard vehicle and service
Linde Material Handling has made (and is continuing to make) great strides in advancing their automated solutions to provide customers with a highly efficient, cost-effective, safe and ultimately an extremely viable option.
These advancements have been furthered by a 2020 announcement from KION Group and Quicktron on their strategic partnership. Quicktron is a company that offers Autonomously-Guided intelligent rack-handling vehicles and in 2020 announced that they will be adding to the already enriched skills and experience within the KION Mobile Automation business.
This type of collaboration within KION Group will allow cutting-edge solutions from companies like Linde MH and Quicktron to come together and offer customers a truly exciting prospect…making the future of automation with Linde MH (and KION Group as a whole), a very bright one.
