RELAG – complete transparency in the block warehouse
What can RELAG do?
RELAG is a forklift guidance system that specialises in the storage processes in large block warehouses. It enables precise goods and pallet identification and ensures efficient material flows and reliable goods tracking. The automatic localisation means that the system always knows where a forklift is currently located and the specific goods that it is transporting. If a package is stored incorrectly, the software notifies the operator of the error and documents the incorrect position. RELAG generates a three-dimensional map of the entire warehouse on which the current position of every load unit is stored.
Who needs RELAG?
RELAG is perfect for companies that operate a block warehouse or have a large fleet of forklift trucks. Besides completely transparent goods storage, the system is ideal for coordinating the routes of large fleets of forklift trucks. All of the routes in the warehouse can be stored in the software. The system uses this information to calculate optimum routes, avoid empty runs and complete trips efficiently whilst also saving energy.
- 3D visualisation of the entire warehouse
- Reliable goods tracking with real-time localisation
- Efficient management of transport orders
- ABC and XYZ analysis of stored goods
- Connection of mobile devices (tablets, smartphones, scanners, etc.)
- Available in 18 languages
Advantages of RELAG at a glance
- Absolute traceability of all goods in the block warehouse
- Error reduction during storage and retrieval
- Optimised use of the entire forklift fleet
- Reduction of empty runs
Warehouse Navigation Interface – non-stop travel through the high rack warehouse
What can the Warehouse Navigation Interface do?
The Warehouse 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 rack warehouse at the push of a button. The truck’s Warehouse Navigation software uses the Warehouse 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 Warehouse Navigation Interface?
The Warehouse Navigation Interface is a genuine asset for all operators of high rack warehouses who already use Linde Warehouse Navigation. Once the operator 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.

Advantages of the Warehouse Navigation Interface at a glance
