The springboard into the future
Networked warehouse with software for intralogistics and automation

Integrated software solutions are becoming ever more important in modern intralogistics. Firstly, for collecting data and key figures that are used as the basis for sound corporate strategy decisions, and secondly, to analyze, optimize, and automate all goods, information, and resource flows. The visualization and real-time control of complex material flow processes is making the warehouse of the future more efficient than ever.

Whether manual, semi- or fully automated, block or high rack warehouse, Linde Material Handling software solutions offer a wide range of possibilities for improving the efficiency of your process flows and making tangible savings. Regardless of whether you have just started looking into the topics of digitalization and automation, or whether you have already taken the first steps, our applications let you get the most out of your warehouse.

Linde Warehouse Navigator

The Intelligent Warehouse

The Linde Warehouse Navigator is a digital warehouse management and forklift guidance system that ensures efficient material flows with minimal time expenditure. Thanks to automatic localization, you can track all goods in real time and no longer have to enter warehouse positions manually. The system triggers all driving orders fully automatically and assigns routes and storage locations. This allows you to optimally coordinate your industrial trucks while maintaining an overview of warehouse utilization.

Individual expansion modules allow you to extend the range of functions and adapt it to your respective level of digitization and automation. Autonomous trucks, automatic conveyor technology, and even fully automated high rack warehouses can be easily integrated into the system. Interfaces and user guidance always remain the same.

The Linde Warehouse Navigator automates all warehouse processes.

Modular System Architecture

Warehouse Management System (WMS)

The basis of Linde Warehouse Navigator is a powerful warehouse management system. It supports you in every warehouse during the storage and retrieval of goods, as well as with the management of orders and inventories. Thanks to real-time localization, it knows the current position of all storage units and visualizes them on a 3D view of the warehouse.

Picking Guidance System (PGS)

With the picking guidance system of the Linde Warehouse Navigator, you can efficiently manage picking orders and keep an eye on them. Larger orders can be divided into several partial orders and then consolidated. The system bundles smaller orders with many individual items for parallel picking (multi-order picking).

Forklift Guidance System (FGS)

The Linde Warehouse Navigator forklift guidance system is ideal for coordinating the routes of your truck fleet and optimizing your material flow. It calculates the best routes and navigates the driver along the fastest path to the destination. As a result, you avoid empty runs and can manage driving jobs efficiently and in a way that saves energy.

Linde VNA Navigation Interface – Non-stop through the high shelving

What can the Linde VNA Navigation Interface do?

The Linde VNA Navigation Interface is a useful addition to the Linde Warehouse Navigation. The Warehouse Navigation ensures that very narrow aisle trucks find the most efficient route between two points in the high shelving at the push of a button. The truck’s Warehouse Navigation software uses the Linde VNA Navigation Interface to communicate with your Warehouse Management System. This means that the target coordinates for the next trip do not have to be entered manually, as they are fed directly into the truck’s navigation software.

Who needs the Linde VNA Navigation Interface?

The Linde VNA Navigation Interface is a genuine asset for all operators of high rack warehouses who already use Linde Warehouse Navigation. Once the driver has completed an order, the forklift truck automatically receives the next one. The target coordinates for the goods that need to be moved next do not have to be individually entered in the system. This saves time and considerably increases the handling volume.

Linde VNA Navigation Interface functions

  • Interface between the WMS and trucks
  • Automated navigation in the high shelving
  • Efficient management of order lists
  • Available in numerous languages

Advantages of the Linde VNA Navigation Interface at a glance

  • Direct connection to the existing WMS
