Are Sorting AGV The Next Major Technology In Warehouse Automation?

With quite a number of manufacturing and e-commerce firms opting for warehouse automation, most of the warehouse activities are being automated. Parcel sorting is certainly one of them. Many sectors are adopting sorting automation systems due to the increasing sales volume.

The sorting AGVs can greatly reduce the manual demands in the sorting process, improve the efficiency and automation degree, and greatly improve the accuracy rate. Industries that have a short delivery cycle and a high volume of delivery can incorporate this system to optimize their operational efficiency. With the improvement of big data algorithms and integration of intelligent control systems, the sorting AGV has become a highly fit-component of the logistics industry.

Sorting AGV

A sorting AGV is an automated guided vehicle system that automates the sorting process in a warehouse. The sorting process can occur when the goods enter and inside the warehouse. By sorting, picking processes can be prepared and a variety of warehouse KPIs are optimized.

Floor-based Sorting

Empowered by strong algorithm, the solution monitors robot traffic and balances the task of each robot to achieve maximum sorting efficiency. It can be integrated with MIWA Robotics moving robots to automatically transport packages and achieve unmanned automated sorting operations.

Multi-layer Sorting

With the Multi-layer Sorting solution, the sorting AGVs work on different level platforms, improving efficiency and utilization of warehouse space. Packing, sorting, and loading areas are highly integrated, optimizing the whole outbound process, realizing unmanned sorting operations.

With automation being increasingly adopted by several firms belonging to various sectors for the repetitive, menial tasks, it has become evident that parcel sorting tasks should be automated too. Though there is still scope of improvement, varied set of benefits such as improved accuracy, quicker delivery, reduced dependency on the human workforce during peak seasons, and gaining a competitive edge over the other firms, certainly outweigh the drawbacks. Also, it is important to keep in mind that the installation of most sorting robot systems is quicker and easier than that of traditional cross-belt sorters. Thus, it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that companies should attempt to incorporate parcel sorting solutions into their operations, without further ado.
