Warehouse automation is the way to combat common warehouse problems such as the lack of visibility over the flow of goods, over or under-ordering, downtime caused by human error — all of which result in reduced performance and increased operational costs.
Automated warehouse logistic solutions are the way that businesses and organisations can capture tangible efficiency gains, where the flow of goods through your warehouse keeps flowing. Toyota can help you take the automation journey step-by-step, optimising your entire workflow.
Pallet transport, storage in racking or on the floor or just-in-time delivery of goods, our Autopilots and Radioshuttle can take care of all the repetitive load handling in your warehouse. Learn more about the advantages of AGVs here.

We help you utilise the Toyota way. As the material flow throughout your site is often standardised and easily upgraded, we can separate repetitive flows from unique ones, ensuring a cost-effective and well-performing logistics operation.
Our lean thinking approach will help eliminate waste and standardise your processes to make automation smoother and capture lean production. Together, we will identify the flows where automation will add the most value, taking your automation journey step-by-step and creating an ultimately bespoke solution design.
Where pallets are moved, there are often simple transportations from one specific station to another specific station. In distribution centres where pallets are directly transported from inbound to outbound this is called cross-docking.
In a warehouse or manufacturing site, there are always a lot of empty pallets as goods have been used or picked. Empty pallets are also needed to place picked items or finished goods from the production on.
Pallets with finished goods are picked up at a temporarystorage or the wrappers close to production or picking areas, and dropped off at the outbound area, typically floor buffers or deep stacks, waiting to be loaded into lorries.
