Mobile racking system & automated guided vehicles

MPE Plastics case study, MRS, AGVs, PE solution

Space-saving overall system solution for continuous flow of goods

Even more efficient together – mobile racks in combination with automated guided vehicles ensure space savings and material flow optimization

When existing warehouses need to be upgraded without the option of expansion, or new buildings require a smaller design due to high property prices or other limiting factors, more and more companies opt for the use of mobile racks in combination with automated guided vehicles. This solution package by SSI SCHAEFER can be integrated without problems into existing warehouse layouts, ensures space gain, enables a constant material flow around the clock and helps to reduce operating costs in the long run. Staff dependency is reduced and the error rate tends to be zero.
