Auve Tech, the first Estonian manufacturer of self-driving vehicles, specializes in last-mile transportation in pre-mapped areas.
As of January 24th, Tallinn Airport has officially begun utilizing autonomous vehicles supplied by Auve Tech OÜ for the transportation of Magnetic MRO employees and small package deliveries. This marks the introduction of cutting-edge technology in the airport’s ground transportation operations.
According to Riivo Tuvike, Chairman of the Board of AS Tallinna Lennujaam, the decision by Auve Tech to conduct testing of their autonomous vehicles on the airport’s property is purposeful – the movement here requires complying with several rules and procedures. “This allows us to create an unprecedented experience on how to use autonomous vehicles for airport needs in the futuure, such as transporting passengers,” said Tuvike. Furthermore, Tuvike emphasized that Tallinn Airport has always placed a strong emphasis on innovation and the integration of advanced technology.
“Our purpose is to bring the service of autonomous vehicles to the Tallinn airport area for the first time. That’s how we can improve the logistics on the airport grounds and help reach sustainable goals for daily operations. This project serves as a practical example for airports worldwide,” said Johannes Mossov, a member of the board of Auve Tech, regarding the ambition behind this partnership.
Raivo Roolaid, Supply Chain Manager at Magnetic MRO, described the innovative mindset behind the partnership, stating, “At Magnetic MRO, we are constantly seeking ways to improve efficiency and work smarter. In cooperation with Auve Tech and AS Tallinna Lennujaam, we have developed a logistics solution utilizing autonomous vehicles for transportation within the airport and between hangars, which not only enhances operational efficiency but also promotes environmental sustainability.”
