New funding will enable Locus Robotics' further expansion into new markets and support fast-growing customer and partner network.

Locus Robotics, a leader in autonomous mobile robots (AMR) for fulfilment warehouses today announced that it has secured $50 million in additional funding from existing investor Tiger Global Management to facilitate continued growth and expansion into new markets around the globe, and more effectively meet the needs of its growing customer and partner ecosystem.

It is the second major funding announcement this year, following the $150 million in series E funding announced in February.

“At a time of increasing volumes and ongoing labour shortages, this new round of funding underscores how critical flexible, scalable, intelligent robotics automation has become to the warehouse and the supply chain,” said Rick Faulk, CEO of Locus Robotics.

“Locus is uniquely positioned to drive digital transformation in this enormous global market.”

This latest funding adds to the investment made by Tiger Global in Locus’s series E round in February.
“We are impressed by Locus Robotics' proven technology, flexible design, and customer obsession,” said Griffin Schroeder, Partner, Tiger Global. "As their warehouse partners face rapidly growing e-commerce volumes, rising labour costs, and increasingly demanding customers, Locus will be ready to provide solutions that work.”
