Challenge: An e-commerce retailer was planning to build a facility around automated technology, and the operation required a flexible and scalable picking solution that could accommodate a highly diverse inventory of materials. The company also had strict fulfillment and shipping deadlines that depended upon high order accuracy.
Solution: Locus Robotics worked with the retailer’s team to build an automated process that met requirements before the facility began operations. They deployed 13 bots in 14 weeks, as well as a process to adapt to the retailer’s rapid SKU growth.
Results: When operations began, the retailer was able to pick 100,000 orders per month — growing 30% each month. Last-minute order fulfillment has dropped — improving accuracy and on-time shipping — and employee productivity has increased.
About the Solution Provider: Locus Robotics’ revolutionary, multi-bot solution incorporates powerful and intelligent autonomous mobile robots that work collaboratively with workers, dramatically improving fulfillment productivity 2X-3X. Locus helps retailers, 3PLs, and specialty warehouses efficiently meet and exceed the growing volume demands, manage labor costs, easily integrating into existing warehouse infrastructures without disrupting workflows.
