"Having Locus Robotics on site, is firmly enhancing our ability to hit SLA on a daily basis"
Overview & Challenge
Part of the Culina Group, iForce Limited is a thirdparty logistics company that specializes in e-commerce fulfilment and returns logistics. With 11 warehouse locations in the UK, iForce provides a wide range of multi-channel logistics solutions to a variety of wellknown retailers and brands.
Faced with exploding customer volumes, increasing business complexity and the industry wide challenges of recruiting and training sufficient colleagues, especially during the peak trading period of October to December, iForce needed a flexible and scalable automation solution that would de-risk their ability to deliver for their clients.
The iForce team worked closely with Locus to design and deploy a warehouse execution platform using Locus’s autonomous mobile robots (AMRs). Business intelligence was delivered through a rich suite of management and operational dashboards and actionable reporting tools. Cost-management was made significantly easier with Locus’s innovative Robots-as-a-Service (RaaS) model (vs. a traditional CAPEX model), providing operational management flexibility, helping iForce manage monthly fluctuations in demand and labor availability.
