E-commerce company Radial has expanded its partnership with autonomous mobile robots (AMR) provider Locus Robotics, deploying Locus AMRs at its latest fulfillment center in Romeoville, Illinois.
The AMR technology is expected to support high-volume order fulfillment for retail brand Skims and ensure that the center’s operations are optimized to meet rapidly increasing volumes and seasonal peaks while helping to control labor costs. LocusBots have been designed to improve worker productivity in the order fulfillment process by decreasing unproductive walking time and improving worker ergonomics and workplace quality.
With Locus, Radial is able to improve and scale on-demand and without disruption or downtime. Locus’s AMRs also help expedite the onboarding of new Radial employees and seasonal workers so they can be highly productive and faster. The Locus solution includes integrated multi-language capabilities and an intuitive interface, without the need for long training times or added training and development resources.
Rick Faulk, CEO of Locus Robotics, said, “This new deployment expands Radial’s ability to strategically scale to meet the growing needs of dynamic and growing customers like Skims. Locus’s flexibility, seamless scalability and fast ROI have helped Radial to consistently meet and exceed their global customers’ expectations.”
Matt Snyder, senior vice president of solutions and transformation at Radial, a bpost company, added, “The innovative, multi-bot Locus solution has already proven itself in multiple operations in our network, driving greater operational efficiency, productivity and accuracy for our customers. The Locus solution has been an ideal choice to help Radial continue to deliver high productivity and provide our clients with intelligent and efficient fulfillment solutions.”
