Linde Material Handling successfully handed over the world’s tallest autonomous forklift to Singapore Storage & Warehouse (SSW), located in Singapore. It all started with SSW wanting to convert the manually operated very narrow aisle (VNA) forklifts to autonomous VNA forklifts as part of the Company’s innovation drive. More premium solutions like automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS) using stacker cranes were considered, but SSW wanted the flexibility of aisle change that VNA could provide to suit its operations. In addition, VNA forklift is a more efficient use of resources with the desired throughput. However, the challenge for autonomous VNA forklift was the height. There were no past references from any robotics company at such height.
