Locus Robotics, for the 5th year in a row, has been named a Robotics Business Review’s 2020 RBR50 Innovation Award winner in the Applications & Markets Innovation category for their unmatched logistical robotics efforts. The RBR50 Award is an international compilation of 50 of the most transformative technology, product, and services providers, as well as governmental and private business research, development, and investment groups, that are accelerating robotics sector growth.
“It is an honor to be recognized for the fifth year in a row as an RBR50 Innovation Award winner. It recognizes the incredible growth and innovation that Locus Robotics continues to make each year,” said Rick Faulk, CEO of Locus Robotics. “This year has been a banner year for Locus Robotics. We’ve launched several exciting and record-breaking customer deployments around the world with leading 3PL and retail companies like CEVA Logistics to Boots UK. We also signed the biggest AMR deal in the warehouse robotics industry to date with DHL to deploy 1,000 LocusBots across 12 DHL America sites this year. We look forward to continuing on this upward trend and are excited about what 2020 has in store.”
For nine years, Robotics Business Review has produced the RBR50 list. The awards highlight leaders in technology and business innovation, as well as industry trends, showcasing the most influential public and private companies from commercial and industrial robotics categories, including component makers, collaborative robotics, autonomous mobile robots, artificial intelligence, healthcare and service robotics, and more. The 2020 selection committee, which included the editors of Robotics Business Review, The Robot Report, and Collaborative Robotics Trends, received numerous submissions for this year’s awards. Winners were chosen according to a rigorous evaluation process.
“Locus Robotics has been an RBR50 company for the past five years, reflecting its leadership as an innovator of collaborative and autonomous mobile robots,” said Eugene Demaitre, senior editor at The Robot Report. “This past year, Locus has expanded its partnership with DHL Supply Chain, demonstrating that its AMRs can serve life sciences in addition to successfully transforming warehouses and e-commerce order-fulfillment distribution centers.”
