In automated mode, Crown’s R 1000 Series reach trucks checked all the boxes for DHL Supply Chain. They operate with increased efficiency, accuracy, reliability and safety for high-reach, double-deep pallet putaway and retrieval without requiring any significant changes in warehouse infrastructure. Crown’s AGVs operate at the speed and precision needed to get the job done, safely maneuvering alongside warehouse employees while handling full pallet putaway and retrieval up to six levels high. Skilled employees are reassigned to manage multiple automated reach trucks rather than operating one on their own.
Crown’s DualMode automated system helps ensure resiliency in the supply chain with reach trucks available to operate 24/7/365 with high reliability. This degree of flexibility is key to meeting customer needs while managing the demands of an ever-changing supply chain environment and workforce.
