Corporate press releases

Konecranes launches its multi-award-winning Agilon materials handling system at the Logistik & Transport exhibition in Gothenburg, Sweden, on November 5-7, 2018, and enable Swedish companies to benefit from automated warehouse transactions.

Konecranes Agilon® has been improving everyday operations in about 100 locations in Finland, the UK and other selected countries for some years now. It monitors the availability of tools, parts and components in real time at workshops, production plants and maintenance warehouses, optimizing in-house logistics and increasing transaction capacity, transparency and storage area. The newest application is to use Agilon at retail stores both indoors and outdoors as pick&go stations to replace parcel lockers.

“Agilon has made a breakthrough both on industrial and retail markets. Our customers enjoy the benefits of advanced information management, such as exact inventory balances. Now it is time to offer these benefits to Swedish companies, too,” says Tapani Tilus, Vice President, Konecranes Agilon business.

The patented and modular system can be used for storing and managing thousands of different components. It can handle materials of all shapes and sizes up to 600mm x 400mm x 450mm that weigh up to 25kg. Every transaction is entirely traceable as every item entered into or removed from the system is user, time, and date stamped. All transaction information is available through a web service that comes with the possibility to share availability information within the supply chain and create automated replenishment processes between systems.

Agilon has received several international awards and distinctions, such as the Red Dot Design award.
