Inside ASTI

ASTI (Automatismos y Sistemas de Transporte Interno) is an international engineering firm that builds made-to-measure automated intralogistics optimisation solutions.

ASTI forms part of ASTI Technologies Group (ATG), created to deliver technology-based solutions that optimise enterprise productivity.

Ever since we started providing automated intralogistics solutions in 1982 our purpose has been crystal-clear:to increase our clients’ competitiveness.

Our solutions range from traditional materials-handling equipment like conveyors and handlers through to latest-generation systems like automated guided vehicles (AGVs), all designed to maximise intralogistics flexibility, efficiency and effectiveness.

The elements that make up our solutions are all managed by SIGAT, our 100%-proprietary module-based system automation software.
