Enhance your PRODUCTIVITY with automation

3 reasons to automate your warehouse

CONTINUAL LABOUR

Optimise your warehouse and boost its efficiency by having continuous automated performance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

PRECISE NAVIGATION

Utilising pinpoint precision, automated vehicles proactively stop and alert unexpected obstacles whenever they cross their path.

SMARTER HANDLING

A growing concern in today’s fast-paced working environment is how best to alleviate the impact of repetitive, physically demanding tasks.

WHY AUTOMATION IS THE WAY FORWARD

Consign repetitive everyday handling to automation.

Efficiency is the foundation of any warehouse, and it’s the warehouses of the future that will excel by leveraging technology. When that future will happen for most, is hard to tell. But for Toyota, the future is now. By fusing storage solutions with integrated material handling, Toyota has automated the workplace. Whether you’re a logistics provider or production worker, automation can accelerate your work ethic. By adding a new dimension of productivity, you can consign repetitive everyday handling to automated trucks. This allows for staff to focus on less laborious and more delicate procedures.

Automation offers precise navigation, smarter handling and intelligent communication. Better yet, continual automated labour supports Toyota’s lean approach to repetitive pallet handling. The automated stackers ensure lean operation and damage-free storage in tight lanes as well as a smooth workflow. This added dimension of productivity can be provided to our customers as a step-by-step solution or as a complete conversion. Each of Toyota’s trucks or “Autopilots” can be equipped with Lithium-ion batteries for auto charging. Meaning the trucks charge themselves between tasks without the need of personnel – making it fully automated.

Integrated solutions

Locators will identify the flows where automation will add the most value

When it comes to everyday tasks in a warehouse, there tends to be a premeditated approach to all operations. By mapping the logical steps of your workforce, we can deliver complete integrated solutions – from concept right through to implementation. Whilst automating your material handling process can seem complex, Locators are here to help. Our systematic approach identifies commonalities that function as configurable modules for repetitive use. So, whether you’re looking to increase your output, flexibility or resilience, we can design a solution that’s best suited to your needs. We work with Toyota to implement state-of-the-art automation applications. These can benefit order preparation, product sortation and high-density storage technologies.

Automating repetitive tasks – such as storing and retrieving goods – brings a high level of safety and accuracy on site and supports lean thinking. Lean thinking helps us eliminate waste and standardise processes to make for a much smoother automation process. This is emboldened by the Autopilot range from Toyota as it’s equipped with scanners and vision-aided load support. These are just some of the safety precautions that ensure productivity and minimise damage when load handling. The data accrued by these machines then allow us to identify, refine and optimise the workflow of your warehouse.

MODULAR THINKING

Locators will identify the flows where automation will add the most value

Automating your internal logistics can improve its efficiency and safety. Yet, whilst automated solutions can seem unique and complex, the material flow of logistics is quite predictable. By utilising a systematic approach, we can identify common functions that act as configurable modules. These modules can then be tweaked in future and entrusted shortcuts for repetitive use.
