ATLS (Automatic Truck Loading System) is an automatic pallet loading system that can load products into containers or trucks without additional equipment and significantly reduces working hours. Depending on the product and the size of the load, the operating time may vary, but the average time is less than 20 minutes. ATLS is a fully automated truck loading system, making loading and unloading operations fast, safe, and with lower operating costs.
The global automated truck loaded system market expected to spur with USD 5.8 billion with significant CAGR in the forecast period from 2020-2027. The market demand for the automated truck loaded system is rising due to the increasing demand for clean and safe working, reduce environment, and reduction of damage plays a vital role in the adoption of an automated truck loaded system.
The most significant advantage of ATLS is that pallets can load onto containers without human intervention. Customers can achieve high efficiency through precise workflow and stable operating speed. It also improves loading operations through performance index tracking, job data automation, and real-time 360º job visibility.
The implementation of the automatic loading and unloading system meets the needs of improving operational efficiency while shortening the truck’s stay on the platform and creating a safer environment for employees and products.
Moreover, the increasing labor costs, increasing labor shortages, and insufficient logistics storage space in large cities are increasingly adopting an automated truck loading system. Also, companies pay more attention to clean, safe, and controllable logistics processes, and stricter employee health and safety regulations and other factors, prompting companies to pay more attention to improving the logistics system.
The use of ATLS (Automatic Truck Loading System) can significantly save the time and human resources of loading and unloading trucks, thereby shortening the waiting and detention time of vehicles in logistics centers. Also, the level of automation in a different industry reduces the workforce and increases efficiency due to the rapid development of logistics automation systems.
With the rapid development of robotics and automation, the industries are demanding automation in their operation process to reduce human intervention. Therefore, the automated truck loaded system is acquired by many industries to reduce the cost of labor, improve efficiency, and increases production.
Based on the loading dock, the global automated truck loaded system market segment into Flush dock, Enclosed dock, and Saw-tooth dock. The sawtooth dock segment estimated to dominate the maximum share of the global automated truck loaded system market. It mainly owes to reduce the loading and unloading processes efficiently. These sawtooth docks are applied where the dock space needs to overcome as the truck already lined up in the drive-way direction. Therefore, sawtooth docks are required where space is limited and constraint for truck loading operations.
Based on the software and service, the global automated truck loaded system market bifurcated into software, service. The software segment dominates the market share for the global automated truck loaded system. It is mainly owing to the software used in an automatic truck loading system that connects the loader and the weighbridge to share the data of loading operations, thereby improving efficiency, visibility, and material sales. The software makes a list of loading operations in order of priority and truck ID. Provide the driver with simple and organized relevant data that can quickly load the car on the field according to urgency and priority.
Based on the system type, the global automated truck loaded system market classified into Chain Conveyor, Slat Conveyor, Belt Conveyor, Skate Conveyor, Roller Track, and Automated Guided Vehicle. The automated guided vehicle segment will capture the largest share in the global automated truck loaded system market. The automatic guided vehicle system (AGVS) has the advantage of industrial forklifts and has benefits in reducing operating costs and improving handling quality. By installing sensors, safety devices, and control units, industrial forklifts can upgrade to automatic guided vehicles. Thus, driving the demand for the global automated truck loaded system market.
Based on the Industry, the global automated truck loaded system market segmented into Aviation, Cement, Paper, FMCG, Post & Parcel, Automotive, Textile, Pharmaceutical, Warehouse & Distribution. The FMCG segment accounts for the highest share in the global automated truck loading system market. It is mainly owing to the success of the FMCG industry that relies on advanced supply chain systems, which are characterized by on-demand delivery. The implementation of the automatic truck loading and unloading system, the turnover speed of freight shuttles between production facilities and distribution centers, and retail stores can be accelerated to meet consumer demand quickly and accurately.
Based on the truck type, the global automated truck loaded system market classified into Modified Truck Type, Non-modified Truck Type. The non-modified truck is capturing the largest market share for the global automatic truck loaded system. It is mainly owing to the non-modified cart that is capable of loading and unloading trucks parked on parallel docks-up to 5 loading and unloading docks at the same time. Increase the efficiency of transportation companies by increasing supply chain value.
Based on geography, the global automated truck loaded system market segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. Europe is the world’s fastest-growing automated truck loaded system market, accounting for the largest share in the global market. It is mainly due to the increasing demand for an automated vehicle loaded system to improve the loading and unloading operations. Moreover, the adoption of the rising prevalence of automation is fueling market demand for an automated truck loaded system in the European region.
Companies such as Actiw Oy, GEBHARDT Fördertechnik GmbH, HAVER & BOECKER OHG, and ATLS Ltd, Joloda International Ltd., C&D Skilled Robotics, Inc., VDL Systems B.V. and others are key players in the global automated truck loaded system market.
