CKF Systems partners with Global AGV to increase logistics offering

CKF Pallets

Gloucester-based CKF Systems has announced a new partnership with Global AGV, a leading supplier of automated guided vehicles (AVG) to the logistics industry. Both organisations have more than thirty years industry experience and this partnership will  add more value, and a more comprehensive solution, for CKF customers.

CKF Systems Ltd has been supporting the end-of-line processes for its customers for more than three decades, specialising in automated case handling and palletising using industrial robots and layer palletisers.

Many of the systems installed by CKF auto-palletise, wrap and label pallets to be removed by operators using PPTs or FLTS which then require moving, at times, vast distances across a facility. This is very labour intensive and exposes operators to risk of injury from other moving plant equipment. Automated guided vehicles remove the requirement of operators in high traffic areas and offer the opportunity to reallocate staff to key areas within a business.

Global AGV’s solution is based on standard LINDE powered pallet handling equipment and can be installed as a standalone solution with the management software loaded onto the AGV rather than an external fleet management software.
