End of line automated guided vehicle (AGV) applications typically occur after the manufacturing and packaging of products within the food, beverage, and fast moving consumer goods industries. Common movements include transport of full pallets of finished product from palletizers to stretch wrappers, from stretch wrappers to storage/staging, and from storage/staging to shipping. These predictable, repetitive maneuvers at end of line provide a substantial return on investment (ROI) and quick payback on operations that run several shifts. 

Features & Benefits

  • Reduced damage of packaging equipment – palletizers and stretch wrappers
  • Reduced damage of finished goods 
  • Improved hygiene and cleanliness
  • Reduced labor cost and reassign labor to more value added tasks
  • Improved safety with controlled acceleration/deceleration


  • These applications can range in complexity from very simple “A” to “B” to highly managed/integrated
  • To minimize deadheading (AGV returning from a delivery empty, without a load), packaging materials and empty pallets can be delivered to packaging lines

Options & Models

  • Palletized loads are typically handled by forked AGVs
  • Unpalletized loads on slipsheets can be transported using unit load conveyor AGVs
