Locus Robotics, the leader in autonomous mobile robots (AMR) for fulfillment warehouses, has been chosen by GXO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: GXO), the world’s largest pure-play contract logistics provider, as the primary AMR technology to support high-volume order fulfillment for a large sports-fashion retail company in the U.K. and Netherlands.
“Locus’s innovative multi-bot approach, flexibility, scalability, and fast ROI is helping GXO to consistently exceed their global customers’ expectations,” said Rick Faulk, CEO of Locus Robotics. “This deployment allows GXO to further scale its operations for the customer as they expand into new markets and reach more consumers.”
To accommodate the explosive growth of its European retail customer, GXO has deployed 65 Locus Robotics AMRs at their warehouses. The LocusBots optimize productivity in the order fulfillment process by decreasing unproductive walking time and eliminating the physical challenges of pulling heavy pick trolleys.
“This partnership reflects our ongoing commitment to deploy innovative logistics solutions that use advanced technology to address increasingly complex fulfillment challenges,” said Gavin Williams, Managing Director of GXO, U.K. and Ireland. “Customization, flexibility and scalability are the hallmarks of our solutions, and the Locus AMRs support our ability to make warehouse space even more efficient for our customers.”
