Mobile robots are not yet a commodity, but they are spreading worldwide. Locus Robotics Corp. today announced that its award-winning autonomous mobile robots, or AMRs, are now available in Italy and Poland. The company said its systems use artificial intelligence to cut costs and improve workplace ergonomics.

“We are thrilled to bring Locus's transformative warehouse automation solutions to Italy and Poland as we continue expanding our European footprint,” said Rick Faulk, CEO of Locus Robotics, in a release.

“Our AI-powered robotics solutions allow customers in these countries to optimize productivity, efficiency, and accuracy in their facilities, boosting output 2-3X while lowering labor costs by 50% or more,” he asserted. “As the pressure grows on supply chains, our intelligent robots enable companies to cost-effectively scale and stay competitive. We enable the future of smart warehouses.”

Locus expands in Europe

Wilmington, Mass.-based Locus said its AMRs already support more than 120 of the world's top brands and are deployed at over 270 sites around the world. They are designed to enable third-party logistics providers (3PLs), manufacturers, and specialty warehouses to meet or exceed the increasingly complex demands of today's fulfillment environments, it added.

The company said its robots are currently deployed at more than 65 sites in Europe, serving dozens of customers. Its European headquarters are in Amsterdam. In August, Locus surpassed its 2 billionth pick globally, just 11 months after reaching the landmark of 1 billion picks.

“LocusBots have already helped our European customers in retail, e-commerce, healthcare, and logistics to significantly improve productivity and efficiency,” said Denis Niezgoda, vice president for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) at Locus Robotics. “Our powerful and flexible AMR technology enables a wide range of businesses to easily meet today's existing demand, seamlessly scale for future growth, and remain competitive within their industries.”

Optimize operations with robots, AI

Locus Robotics said it has designed its AMRs to collaborate with human associates, enhancing productivity and efficiency. They can reduce travel time, optimize warehouse layouts, and enable picking with 99.99% accuracy, it asserted.

Both existing and greenfield sites can install Locus systems without changing infrastructure or disrupting workflows, said the company.

Locus claimed that its AI and data science-driven LocusOne platform enables the smooth orchestration of multiple robotic form factors at enterprise scale. The warehouse automation execution software manages tasks to be completed within the four walls and across multiple levels, it added.

“LocusOne optimizes task allocation, route planning, and resource use, while delivering real-time business insights into warehouse operations,” said the company.

In addition, Locus said it robotics-as-a-service (RaaS) subscription model covers robots, upgrades, maintenance, and support. Robot fleets can easily scale up and down to meet fluctuating order volumes during peak and standard seasons, it said.

Locus claimed that its hardware and software can deliver a measurable return on investment (ROI) in just months rather than years.

Locus Robotics said its robots, algorithms, and real-time analytics have won more than 27 industry and technology awards, including the IFOY award. It has also been named to the Inc. 5000 three years in a row.

Locus Robotics healthcare distribution and fulfillment solution helps create optimal business continuity for demanding fulfillment environments. From improved order accuracy and turnaround, to improved ROI, Locus has the ideal solution for healthcare and medical.
