AUSTRIAN POST TESTS AUTONOMOUS COURTYARD LOGISTICS

April 11, 2019 / postandparcel

Austrian Post has unveiled an innovative vehicle for the autonomous transport of containers – also known as swap bodies – at Austrian Post’s logistics centre in Inzersdorf, Vienna.The transfer vehicle has been developed by Austrian Post and the AIT (Austrian Institute of Technology) for use at logistics locations, and is intended to ensure the autonomous transport of swap bodies on the company premises.The swap bodies are therefore transported independently from the designated parking spaces to the gates and docking to them is also automated.DI Peter Umundum, Member of the Management Board of Austrian Post, said:“We believe in the future of autonomous driving, although it is difficult at the moment to identify test areas. With our project we have found the first real test area in in-house logistics that offers great potential for future feasibility.”
