Challenge: A leading 3PL, fulfilling D2C and D2B medical apparel and supplies, needed to increase efficiency as their client began processing more than three times their average order volume.
Solution: The 3PL chose to implement a Locus Robotics multi-bot solution to increase productivity, reduce expenses and support its client as demand spiked and needs changed. Locus deployed autonomous mobile robots and a suite of actionable reporting tools and dashboards. Installation included a systems integration with the 3PL’s warehouse management system and network, a solution design of the facility and workflow, and the implementation itself, including navigation and pick testing.
Results: The 3PL more than doubled productivity and reduced congestion on the warehouse floor, resulting in faster fulfillment. The ability to scale proved especially valuable — accommodating unexpected demand increases 30% to 40% above projections.
About the Solution Provider: Locus Robotics is the market leader in autonomous mobile robots (AMR) for fulfillment warehouses. The company has quickly become the leading warehouse robotics solution provider for retailers and third-party logistics (3PL) operators, industrial/automotive, and healthcare companies worldwide that are looking to meet the shifting demands of the booming e-commerce and fulfillment market.
