Locus Robotics’ revolutionary, multi-bot solution incorporates powerful and intelligent autonomous mobile robots that operate collaboratively with human workers to dramatically improve piece?handling productivity 2–3x, with less labor compared to traditional piece-handling systems. Locus helps retailers, 3PLs and specialty warehouses efficiently meet and exceed the increasingly complex and demanding requirements of fulfillment environments. Easily integrating into existing warehouse infrastructures without disrupting workflows, Locus transforms productivity without transforming the warehouse.
Locus’s European presence is centrally located in Amsterdam and we are expanding into the APAC region as well. In 2022, Locus Robotics was named to the Inc. 500 for the second year in a row, and winning over 13 industry awards including a 2022 IFOY Award for its Autonomous Mobile Robot Solution in the Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV/AMR) category.
