Do we need the human touch? The benefits of automation in business operations

Here at Toyota, we offer a comprehensive range of automated trucks which can be used across applications of any size, from a small warehouse to a large manufacturing operation.

In today’s blog post, we look at the benefits of implementing automated processes in your operation.


By automating processes, particularly repetitive ones, you can improve your operational efficiency greatly. Automation helps you to standardise and simplify certain processes, such as stock replenishment or transporting parts between work stations; providing you with the most effective way of getting that task completed in the least time possible.

Cost Saving

By installing automated solutions within your operation, you can help to reduce your operational costs over time. Take our Autopilot TAE050 semi-automated cart for example; this can be used to automate repetitive manual processes. This in turn allows you to utilise the team member who was performing this process to perform a more complex task within your business, allowing your operation to be more productive and therefore reduce overall operational costs.


All of our automated trucks are designed and produced using the world renowned Toyota Production System, meaning that they will deliver the highest levels of quality, durability and safety available.

In addition to this, these trucks are fitted with laser guidance systems which accurately detect the trucks working environment and if any obstacle is detected, the truck will automatically come to a stop until the obstruction is cleared. All of our automated warehouse trucks are an enhancement of the standard truck design, meaning they are still able to be driven in manual mode if required.
