What new products have you launched in the last year?

Last year, we delivered our first automated guided vehicle [AGV] handling 10ft ULDs [unit load devices] to our customer Swissport at their terminal in Frankfurt. We believe that AGVs are going to play an increasingly important role in the automation of both medium-sized cargo terminals and large hubs. They replace static conveyor lines as well as forklift activity with a flexible, safe and fossil-fuel free option. We are also developing a new concept for dnata in Amsterdam where AGVs will serve the entire build break workstation area. We see a growing interest in the product.

What are you launching next?
