AGV Material Handling & Warehouse Automation | Fortna

Solutions: AGVs and Self-Driving Vehicles (SDVs)

Autonomous Guided Vehicle Systems Reduce Labor Needs

Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGVs) are fully autonomous robots that move and transport materials without the need for additional labor or permanent conveyor systems. In a labor constrained market, AGV and SDV solutions offer an opportunity for savings and a virtually lights-out operation. Their ability to move autonomously around obstacles allows these units to be integrated seamlessly within existing environments and operations.

Fortna works with top manufacturers of AGV and SDV solutions to design flexible, scalable, and reliable operations that meet your business requirements.

    Agnostic Approach to Identify Best-Fit Technologies

    The Fortna Distribution Optimization Framework leans into your data and our proprietary processes, tools, and algorithms to design and deliver solutions using best-fit mobile solutions. We work with a deep bench of partners, but our agnostic approach allows for truly innovative and holistic design that leverages best-in-class technologies, without bias toward any manufacturer or supplier. We can help you select appropriate technologies and work collaboratively with the chosen supplier to optimize your solution for exemplary business results.

    Powered by an Intelligent Warehouse Execution System

    FortnaWES™ intelligent software optimizes the design and allows you to leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities for compounded gains in efficiency and insights. This agnostic software platform makes it possible to integrate solutions from virtually any AS/RS equipment and swap out technologies without having to make expensive and time-consuming updates to your existing systems.


    Proof of Concept and Business Case Justification

    Complex projects sometimes require a proof of concept (POC) to validate functionality and justify the business case prior to investing significant capital expense for the broader solution. At Fortna, business case is at the heart of everything we do. We will help you develop the business case, align stakeholders, and obtain the Board-level support you need for your investments.

    AGVs allow us the flexibility to change routes or relocate in other parts of the building as required.
