Sandow’s Material Bank, the world’s largest B2B material marketplace for architecture and design, offers designers the ability to sample hundreds of materials from all over the globe.
To successfully deliver sample orders on-time, in-full, and at no charge to the customer, Material Bank implemented Locus Robotics Multi-Bot Fulfillment Solution to increase operational flexibility and decrease employee walking time, enabling associates to pick a very diverse group of materials quickly and accurately.
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.
Locus Robotics solution deploys robots that team members work with instead of follow. By dividing the work amongst LocusBots and employees Dick's Sporting Goods increases worker satisfaction, engagement, productivity, and order accuracy.
When charged with improving accuracy, cycle times, and overall productivity in North America, DHL turned to Locus Robotics's collaborative multi-bot picking solution. With Locus, DHL increased productivity over 2X, and ensured 100% order accuracy for their customers.
