In response to the ever-growing demand for automated shipping, Loading Automation, Inc. introduces the ATLS (Automatic Truck Loading System), the world's first fully automated system designed for installation on a regular shipping dock, allowing regular, non-modified trailers to be loaded with pallets, slip-sheets, racks and other types of unit loads.
The global automated truck loading system (ATLS) market is segmented on the basis of loading dock, system type, industry, and region.
On the basis of loading dock, the global market is classified into Flush dock, Enclosed dock, Sawtooth dock. The market for sawtooth dock in the global ATLS market is expected to grow gradually with a maximum market share between 2014 and 2025. The major drivers contributing to this growth include increasing the adoption of sawtooth-designed loading docks for efficient loading and unloading processes. These sawtooth docks are applied where the dock space needs to be reduced. In this dock design, the truck requires less space as it is already lined up in the drive-way direction. Hence, these docks are utilized in industries where there is a space constraint for loading and unloading operations.
Flush loading docks are projected to hold the largest size during the forecast period from 2014 to 2025. Some of the major reasons for this growth include the general acceptance of the flush dock design by various industries such as automotive, warehouse & distribution, pharmaceuticals, FMCG, and paper among others. The flush dock is a closed dock. Due to this closed system, it protects the goods from harsh temperatures throughout the process of loading and unloading. Thus, it is one of the most widely adopted dock designs.
On the basis of system type, the global market is classified into chain conveyor systems, slat conveyor systems, belt conveyor systems, skate conveyor systems, roller track systems, and automated guided vehicles.
On the basis of industry, the global market is classified into Aviation, Cement, Paper, FMCG, Post and parcel, Automotive, Textile, Pharmaceutical, and Warehouse and distribution. “Automotive” accounted for the largest market share in 2015; which is then followed by the other industry. The major factor responsible for this growth includes the widespread deployment of automated truck loading system in this industry. The automotive industry is one of the forward-facing runners in the field of automation and mechanization of the logistics chain.
Geographically, the global market is segmented into North America (U.S., Canada, Mexico), Europe (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, England), Asia Pacific (China, Japan, India, Australia, New Zealand), Middle East and Africa (Saudi Arabia, UAE, South Africa), Latin America (Argentina, Brazil), and Rest of the world. The global ATLS market in Europe held the largest share in 2015. This is due to the increasing need for automating the truck loading and unloading by various companies, thereby contributing to a well-organized logistics supply chain. However, the global market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a gradual rate during the forecast period with maximum market share.
The major drivers contributing to the growth of this market include the presence of various industries such as FMCG, warehouse & distribution, paper, cement, and automotive in China and India, where companies are continually striving to deliver goods worldwide in an efficient manner.
The key players of the global automated truck loading system market are as follows:
ATLS Ltd, Actiw Oy, Ancra Systems B.V., Asbreuk Service B.V., BEUMER Group GmbH & Co. KG, Cargo Floor B.V., C&D Skilled Robotics Inc., GEBHARDT Fordertechnik GmbH, HAVER & BOECKER OHG, Joloda International Ltd, Maschinenfabrik Mollers GmbH, Secon Components S.L., VDL Systems B.V.

The automotive & transportation industry is amongst the most exposed verticals to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak and is currently amidst unprecedented uncertainty. COVID-19 is expected to have a significant impact on the supply chain and product demand in the automotive sector. The industry's concern has moved on from being centered on supply chain disruption from China to the overall slump in demand for automotive products. The demand for commercial vehicles is expected to plummet with the shutdown of all non-essential services. Furthermore, changes in consumer buying behavior owing to uncertainty surrounding the pandemic may have serious implications on the near future growth of the industry. Meanwhile, liquidity shortfall and cash crunch have already impacted the sales of fleet operators, which is further expected to widen over the next few months. We are continuously monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, and assessing its impact on the growth of the automotive & transportation industry. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
