Locus Robotics: improve warehouse efficiency with scalable solutions

John Baker, Business Development Manager UK for Locus Robotics, showcases how robotics can adapt to existing facilities and serve as a proven foundation for adaptable automation in new distribution centres.

The Locus Robotics multi-bot solution, where robots come to picking staff, can boost retention while also boasting low operating expenses and a set-up process of just four weeks. Using any WMS, Locus can optimise the workflow of your operations. The Locus system will begin by optimising orders from the WMS, then directing the induction of containers. The LocusBot then optimises its path to the next task, where warehouse associates can select an item and place it into the relevant tote. At the end of the mission, the robot takes its totes to the packing station. All in all, the picking process requires no sortation and multiple robots can work in the same aisle, increasing output substantially.
