SSI Schaefer Wins a Supply Chain Asia Award Once Again


On November 16, the annual Supply Chain Asia (SCA) Awards were presented in 24 categories in Singapore. The WEASEL® automated guided vehicle (AGV) from SSI Schaefer held its own against renowned competitors and received recognition as the »Supply Chain Innovation (Material Handling Equipment) of the Year«. Only solutions that had proven their worth in at least three reference applications and delivered visible results were nominated.

The SCA Awards saw the best of the best in the industry compete against one another, with nominees determined as part of a rigorous selection process. SSI Schaefer was once again presented with the award at the magnificent awards ceremony held on November 16 in Mandarin Orchard Hotel. The international intralogistics expert was also honored by the SCA award in the category »Supply Chain Enterprise Partner of the Year (Hardware)« last year.

»This accolade affirms our constant drive to develop innovations and custom-fit solutions. The WEASEL is the product of the SSISchaefer experts' customer and solution-oriented approach, and fully reflects the needs of the market,« says Brian Miles, Regional Managing Director (Asia, MEA, ANZ) at SSI Schaefer. »We are delighted with our win at the renowned Supply Chain Asia Awards once again and would like to thank everyone involved for their overwhelmingly positive reaction to our WEASEL.«

The AGV is suitable for almost all transport tasks up to 35 kg. It also offers scalability through the connection of multiple forklift vehicles as a fleet solution, making it the ideal, adaptable goods transport device that has none of the restrictions of a fixed conveying system. The vehicle's compact design even allows it to be used in inaccessible areas. In contrast to conventional AGVs, the WEASEL does not come with expensive sensors and complex control systems, and therefore boasts lower investment costs. This opens up new opportunities for customers in terms of automated transport solutions. The vehicles navigate by following optical floor markings.
