Why smart investments in material handling are important
Smart technology is incredibly important in a rapidly changing on-demand economy. These investments have increased significantly over the past few years and will increase even more in the coming years.
E-commerce continues growing while staff shortages in the logistics and transportation sector are mounting. A recent IRU (International Road Transport Union) report shows that the driver shortage in Europe will triple by 2026 if no action is taken. Finding and training staff in a timely manner remains a major challenge. Therefore, across Europe, the focus is shifting to investing in smart technology to support workflow automation. Smart electric tugs not only make your employees work more vitally and healthy, but can even automate the entire process.
Improving material handling: the benefits of smart electric tugs
Our smart electric tugs help improve material handling and logistics processes within your organization. Here are the benefits:
- You reduce wasted time
A smart electric tug optimizes the flow of goods in your warehouse. Increased safety and efficiency reduces costs for damage and wasted time.
- You prevent physical overload
Overloading stands in the way of safe and healthy work and can lead to health problems, absenteeism and even disability. A recent publication by Evofenedex indicates that nearly 40(!) percent of the number of days of absence is directly related to overwork. Using our electric tugs, your employees will move large and small loads with great ease. Your absenteeism due to overwork will drop dramatically. Another great benefit is that less stressful work brings more energy and enjoyment to your employees.
- Your staff shortage is no longer a problem
Our automated guided vehicles follow a planned route completely autonomously. These AGV’s take over logistical tasks from your employees regarding horizontal material movements on wheels.
- Your processes are optimally designed
By moving multiple carts at the same time, you increase process efficiency. By bundling movements, you gain insight into which processes are working and which are not.
