Locus Robotics has reached a deal with Supply Chain Services on the sales and marketing of its warehouse automation systems.

The “channel partnership” will see Supply Chain Services make Locus Robotics’ autonomous mobile robots available to Supply Chain Services’ network of more than 2,000 warehouse and distribution customers around the US.

The two companies will showcase the technologies in a joint exhibit at MinnPack, November 8-9, 2017 in Minneapolis.
