RFID-equipped lift trucks

Warehouse navigation system controls lifting and putaway

To support a semi-automatic approach to reaching destinations by lift truck, Jungheinrich’s warehouse navigation system uses RFID transponders placed in the facility floor at specific distances.

The transponders communicate with an RFID reader/writer in the lift truck to identify aisle locations and distances. Armed with this information, the lift trucks know where to go. Increased productivity is achieved by having the truck select the optimum combination of driving and lifting to reach a pallet position in the fastest, most efficient way.

Because pallet lifting and put away is principally controlled by the truck, not the driver, product damage is reduced.
