DHL Supply Chain has introduced its newest range of autonomous forklifts in Mainland Europe, with these pallet movers being the latest addition to its multi-user warehouse in Bornem, Belgium. This installation of autonomous indoor robotic transporters is part of the company’s Accelerated Digitalization strategy, and focuses on using autonomous forklifts for indoor pallet movement. The implementation is the result of a strategic collaboration between contract logistics company DHL Supply Chain, robotic experts Logisnext Solutions, and consumer goods company Unilever to use automated technology to increase warehouse efficiency, productivity and workplace safety.Autonomous forklifts can handle both horizontal and vertical movements of palletized goods, making them especially useful in sectors that are characterized by full-pallet handling, such as the consumer, retail and automotive sectors.The latest range the autonomous forklift move 1,000 pallets per day, creating a smooth, accurate and stable flow of goods within the warehouse, operating 24/7. The autonomous reach trucks can manage the transportation of base volumes, while manual forklifts can still be added if higher volumes are needed. This flexibility is crucial and is supported by the DHL Robotics Hub, a platform for standardized “plug & play” integration of robotic solutions into the warehouse management system.
