Dematic Hybrid AGVs:

Very Narrow Aisle AGVs (VNA)

For stock movements in confined spaces

In narrow-aisle warehouses, only little space is available for the transport of goods. Hybrid narrow-aisle AGVs were developed especially for these tight spaces.

These automated industrial trucks - also called VNA AGVs (VNA = very narrow aisle) - enable high handling rates for an optimised material flow due to their small dimensions. With our hybrid forklift AGVs, narrow aisle warehouses can be served both manually and automatically.

Advantages of the driverless narrow aisle trucks

Our hybrid narrow-aisle trucks are automated trucks from the KION truck family that are ideally suited for use in narrow-aisle warehouses with a clear aisle width of approx. 1,400 - 2,100 mm. The advantage of our VNA trucks from the hybrid automated guided vehicle range lies in their narrow dimensions and their flexibility of use in intralogistics.

  • Very narrow vehicle width from 1475 mm
  • Extremely manoeuvrable
  • Flexibility in operation (unmanned or manually with driver)
  • High level of safety when transporting goods

Automated guided vehicles (AGVs) from Dematic

Dematic automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are autonomous vehicles that transport materials for automated delivery and storage systems. AGVs perform a wide range of tasks and are equally suitable for production facilities, warehouses and distribution centres.

Hybrid VNA trucks increase the productivity and profitability of your intralogistics by delivering products on time, ensuring the integrity of products and company equipment and providing a very safe working environment.

Hybrid narrow-aisle AGVs are the flexible alternative to manual narrow-aisle trucks and also to stacker cranes.

Hybrid narrow-aisle AGVs: variants and areas of application


  • With swivel fork or with telescopic fork
  • Max. Lifting height approx. 14,000 mm 
  • Max. Load capacity of 1,500 kg

Areas of application

Hybrid narrow aisle AGVs are ideal for locations where storage capacity is fully utilised via racking systems with narrow aisles. Just a few centimetres of clearance on either side of the vehicle is sufficient for safe manoeuvring within the narrow racking aisles.
