INTRALOG is a project, to better use of materials, there by leading to improvements for People (better safety, lower physical work load), Planet (lower emissions and energy/ fuel con started September 2015, in which Automated Guided Truck Applications will be developed. Automated systems typically perform the processes with less variability than human workers and can lead to better use of materials, thereby leading to improvements for People (better safety, lower physical work load), Planet (lower emissions and energy/ fuel consumption) and Profit (more reliability, lower labor cost). It is the purpose of the INTRALOG project to investigate the PPP- value (People, Planet, Profit) of automated guided trucks (AGT's) when applied in real world logistics operation at distribution centers. The goal of INTRALOG is therefore: To prove and demonstrate that the logistic operations regarding People, Planet and Profit (PPP) is improved using AGT's, addressing (1) Stakeholder requirements and business strategies, (2) the logistics framework allowing AGT application, and (3) the AGT control design for automated docking. This paper will address the business requirements and the logistic operations based a multi agent system approach for automated docking.
