Conveyor systems are available in roller, belt and chain configurations to transport everything from small packages and cartons to heavy pallets or unit loads.

Vehicle systems include Sorting Transfer Vehicles (STV) and Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGV). STV is an automated vehicle that runs on a track and is used for sorting and transporting goods within or between areas in a warehouse. The Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGV) is equipped with electromagnetic, or laser systems for guidance and employs several types of collision avoidance systems. An AGV is often referred to as a driverless vehicle because human intervention is not required to control the AGV in the automatic mode of operation.
