Automatic loading and unloading systems save valuable time at the loading ramp. And they can do even more.

Truckers know that even a time delay of merely 30 minutes cannot be caught up on the road – which makes long waiting and loading times at the ramp even more annoying. One solution is provided by automatic truck loading and unloading systems, or ATLS (Automated Truck Loading Systems). A business that according to a report by market researcher MarketsandMarkets ( in 2015 had a global volume of 1.67 billion US dollars, and by 2022 is expected to grow to nearly three billion US dollars. There is certainly room for growth: Ancra Systems, for example, estimates that in Germany only one percent of all truck shipments are automated. Forklifts still dominate the business.
