Intelligent transport flow for efficient material flow supply
With INTRANAV’s Real-time Location System, you can obtain 10 cm (±) precise location positions of your vehicles in real time indoors and also monitor loading and unloading in the yard, as well as the status of your deliveries. In connection with ERP/EWM systems, all bookings can be automated and digitalized. Analyze your work efficiency with the tracking data obtained and then improve the routes of your vehicle fleet for optimal use of resources along the supply chain.
Challenges in handling of transport vehicles
Location & search times
Long search times for the location of individual vehicles, no overall view of the vehicle fleet and current transport orders.
Real-time overview and location accuracy of transport traffic on the shop floor, in outdoor areas or on international routes.
Additional manual operations of forklift drivers
Drivers often have to get out of the driver cockpit for manual processes to perform all tasks, such as scanning, labeling, checking, inspecting stackable pallet units, etc.. This takes up a large part of the actual activity (driving the forklift) and slows down the process.
Manual work processes are replaced by intelligent IIoT and RTLS technology, such as Auto-ID on the vehicle, automated triggering of processes.
Traceability of routes covered
Traveled routes cannot be retraced. A tool for route tracking, evaluation and route optimization is missing.
Reliable and automated analyses of route and transport vehicle utilisation to optimise the flow of transport vehicles.
Efficient route selection & avoidance of traffic jams
Routes are taken according to the order situation, not taking into account the current traffic situation on the shop floor, thus causing detours or traffic jams.
Automatic selection of the most efficient transport routes, alternative route sections through the connection of transport control systems.
Increase of the total process flow through INTRANAV transport vehicle tracking
Precise location information guarantees the exact allocation of the means of transport as well as an overall overview through the visualization of the vehicle positions.
With the combination of RTLS technology and RTLS software you control the transport and goods flow (assets, load carriers, vehicles) in intralogistics as well as in the yard. Warehouse event trigger controls the automatic transport orders of the vehicles, INTRANAV.APPs ensure an optimal transport order distribution of the fleet through a transport order pool and take into account the forklift availability.
Compliance with the temporal transport flow by monitoring the transport vehicles enables timely intervention in case of incidents.
Optimal route utilization
Manual evaluation of travel times, routes and workload is no longer necessary, but is replaced by fully automated reporting. With connection to control systems, optimal routes are automatically suggested to the vehicles.

Indoor & yard management
Goods and transport monitoring of the forklift fleet on the shopfloor (indoor) and in the yard (outdoor) through live display on the INTRANAV.IO Map
Scannerless goods transport through the forklift (Auto-Ident through integrated UWB & RFID technology)
Increase of goods flow order processing by location-based navigation of the drivers
Route and vehicle utilization optimization
Goods bulk recording and booking in SAP or WMS system with RFID
Precise positioning of automated guided vehicles (AGVs) on the shop floor (indoor) and through live display on the INTRANAV.IO Map
Route and vehicle utilisation optimisation
Automated triggering of processes (e.g. door opening, warning lights, etc.)
Cargo monitoring by INTRANAV SMART sensors
Warnings in case of dangerous situations, process interruptions or if unauthorised zones are entered on the premises
Connection to transport vehicle guidance systems also enables fully automatic route optimisation as well as calculation and taking of the most efficient routes. Collisions are a thing of the past thanks to integrated safety systems.
