3PL Case Study

Geodis Improves Productivity by 2x with Locus

Locus’s functionality and software is superior to their competitors. Their LIDAR technology allows these robots to work better than advertised in terms of avoiding people, other robots, pick carts, and other obstructions that may come into play in a warehouse.

Overview & Challenge

GEODIS, a leading global third-party logistics (3PL) provider, was looking for a way to dramatically improve their fast-growing ecommerce fulfillment productivity for a major women’s apparel brand. They needed to efficiently manage peak season volume increases, despite a tight labor market.

Initially deploying 28 LocusBots into the 139,000 square foot facility handling nearly 30,000 SKUs, GEODIS saw an immediate 2X productivity improvement.

Based on this success, GEODIS has now deployed the Locus solution at multiple large customer sites with further expansion planned for the coming months.

Sr. Vice President of Engineering Kevin Stock said, “Locus said that we’d hit 2X in productivity measurements and we are seeing that. They’re delivering on what they said.”

GEODIS uses LocusBots for 2X productivity, reduced training time, and to seamlessly scale to meet peak season volume with existing staff

With Locus, GEODIS was able to double the volume of orders processed – using their existing work staff of material handlers. Plus, Locus’s easy flexibility allowed them to seamlessly scale to meet sudden order spikes and seasonal volume increases without
major labor issues.

Locus was fully deployed within the 139,000 square foot facility in less than 90 days and seamlessly integrated with their WMS system to provide realtime actionable operations and performance data.

Locus’s intuitive UI cut GEODIS worker training time in half, allowing new and seasonal workers to be productive immediately. LocusBots automatically display pick information in a GEODIS worker’s preferred language onscreen (English, Burmese, Chin, Spanish, etc.), further minimizing order errors.

LocusNet gives GEODIS managers detailed, realtime management visibility and operational insight, allowing them to effectively manage productivity and address business challenges.
