DS AUTOMOTION has been specializing in the development and production of highly dynamic AGVs for more than 30 years and has become one of the world’s leading manufacturers in this sector. The focus here is on the automotive, hospital & healthcare, agriculture and industry sectors, as well as on innovative logistics 4.0 applications. Services offered by the AGV specialists include system implementations based on individual customer requirements. The product portfolio is further complemented with the automation of series-production vehicles.

“With this investment, we are expanding our existing AGV portfolio which has already seen the implementation of numerous 2Move® or 2Store® applications thanks to the MoTuM organization”, says Rob Schmit, EVP Technology & Innovation at SSI Schaefer. This new partnership will provide a significant boost for these competencies with regard to the variety of vehicle types, expertise in navigation technology and overall project management.”
