Tallest Autonomous Very Narrow Aisle Trucks Installed by BALYO

BALYO, a technological leader in the design and development of innovative robotic solutions for material handling trucks, announced the successful installation and hand over of world’s tallest autonomous VNAs at Singapore Storage and Warehouse (SSW), located in Singapore.

With a lift height of 16.8m, this is the first site in the world that is operating autonomously at such height using VNA robots. This innovation is further testimony to BALYO’s technological prowess and capabilities. Since its beginning in 1987, Singapore Storage & Warehouse has been the preferred logistics service provider to its wide base of customers and stakeholders in Singapore.

The company has an established track record of helping customers successfully manage their inventory and logistics operations under normal business conditions and stepping up to support business partners during exceptional times, including emergencies. With the company striving for innovation, SSW wanted to convert manually operated VNA in their Singapore site to autonomous robots. The main challenge in this site was height, not throughput. A 16m+ pick/drop of pallets autonomously was not previously possible.

Linde Material Handling Singapore, along with BALYO, implemented its new “Very Narrow Aisle (VNA)” autonomous model with full reliability and safety. 2/3 Thanks to BALYO’s innovative approach to safety, standard OEM forklift controls, and smart perception of pallets, reaching new heights is now possible. After a few weeks of tests in 2021 and a commissioning lead-time of 2 months, BALYO successfully ramped up and handed over four autonomous VNAs to SSW. These robots handle pallets up to 750kg at a maximum pick and drop height of 16.8m.

This capability is unique in the world today. Warehouse and Supply Chain Managers around the globe can now consider autonomous VNA at heights that were earlier not possible. This opens a new applicative segment to BALYO, its partners, and clients which were until now constrained to manual operations or less flexible fully automated warehouses (ASRS). With the space constraints and the tight labor market this technological milestone solves many issues.
