Global AGV help Danpo boost volume, quality and the work environment


Growth and healthier jobs

Effective automation at Danpo fosters growth and healthier jobs through a fully automated packaging facility, incorporating automated guided vehicles from Global AGV. Implementing driverless trucks from Global AGV contributes to creating a sustainable production environment that positively impacts the bottom line.

At Danpo, emphasis is placed on flexible and efficient use of space to accommodate growth within defined limits. Managing the constant competition between available square footage and the company's growth trajectory is key. To succeed in this competition, maintaining control over logistics is crucial. And implementing an automated guided vehicle from Global AGV makes perfect sense in addressing and resolving logistical challenges.


By implementing a self-driving truck, Danpo prevents logistical issues by improving access to lines and facilities. Fixed pallet locations and rigid conveyor systems could constrain pathways, but the AGV creates a future-proof flow, preventing bottlenecks in the packaging facility.


Implementing driverless trucks from Global AGV contributes to a sustainable production environment with noticeable impacts on the financial outcomes. 

Additionally, the AGV plays a role in releasing 2 out of 3 employees to address alternative and more value-adding tasks within the factory.

Automation ensures a 20% higher output


Danpo has been producing chickens for over 60 years, and every week they prepare 950 tonnes of chicken at their factory in Give, near Billund. The freshly prepared products are delivered to the restaurant industry and retail distributors, who have precise requirements for both quality and price points for the goods they sell. As Factory Manager at Danpo, Rene Tryk focuses on opportunities for optimisation:


"The food industry in Denmark is a wage-heavy industry compared to other countries, so we automate everything that we can throughout our company. This ensures our competitiveness, but also the quality and a good work," environment.
says Rene Tryk.


Implementing driverless forklift trucks from Global AGV helps create a sustainable production environment that can be felt on the bottom line. The AGV also helps to free up 2 out of 3 employees to work on other more complex tasks in the factory.


"I have involved my employees in the automation process from the very beginning, as their input is crucial when implementing new workflows. After all, they are the ones working alongside the Global AGV. When automating workflows, it's important to include aspects from 'real life'; otherwise, I don't believe it would have been a success,"

says Stig Nielsen.


Søren Tuborg Bendtsen, Lean Process Manager, prioritises flexible and optimal space utilisation to ensure growth stays within bounds. There's a constant race between square footage and the growth curve at the chicken factory. To win this competition, maintaining control over logistics is crucial, and according to Søren Tuborg Bendtsen, an autonomous truck from Global AGV makes perfect sense in addressing logistical challenges.


"We prevent logistics problems by using a self-driving forklift truck, an AGV, which creates better access to the line and the facility. Fixed pallet slots and roller conveyors would lock the driving paths, while the AGV creates a future-proof flow and prevents accumulations in the packing system. There is also a lot of wasted time with people driving around in a forklift truck and putting something out in the cold store when a robot could be doing it just as well. What the AGV uses in terms of space is minimal compared to manoeuvring around, and the AGV drives itself to its base to recharge between tasks,"

says Søren Tuborg Bendtsen.


Now using brain power over muscle power

The new line is also a hit among Danpo employees, with a driverless forklift truck from Global AGV helping to make employees’ work easier and improving the work environment while not compromising on safety, as department head, Morten Kold, explains:


"Daily life works really well with an AGV, as it makes a lot of our work much easier. Sitting behind the wheel of a forklift truck all day long is just not healthy. Us humans are built to use our brains for something more interesting, like quality control tasks. We call it Robert."


Furthermore, statistics from the manufacturing industry show that manual forklift trucks generally carry an increased risk of human error and accidents due to blind spots and inattention, compared to self-driving trucks. But they don’t have to worry about that at Danpo with a driverless forklift truck from Global AGV, who also make sure to keep the AGV up to date.


"Some of the colleagues have a little fun “playing with the AGV” and challenging the technology in terms of safety to see what happens. But it works as it should every time,"

says Morten Kold.
