Locus Robotics and Geodis to introduce ‘next-generation’ warehouse robotic automation to Mexico

Locus Robotics, a provider of autonomous mobile robots for fulfillment warehouses, has completed a new implementation with Geodis, a global logistics provider, to bring “high performance, next-generation robotics automation” to Mexico to fulfill e-commerce and retail orders for a major global apparel brand.

The new site, Geodis’ first in Latin America to feature Locus Robotics technology, is located in Cuautitlan Izcalli, Mexico and features a fleet of Locus’s award-winning Origin bots operating across all levels of a three-level mezzanine structure, efficiently controlled by the innovative LocusOne warehouse execution platform.

LocusOne enables efficient pick-and-pass, multi-level functionality while delivering real-time operational visibility and management insights to ensure high productivity and a fast ROI.

Rick Faulk, CEO of Locus Robotics, says: “We are thrilled to work with Geodis to bring the power of Locus’s warehouse automation to Mexico.

“This deployment represents a significant expansion of our footprint into Latin America and enables us to support Geodis in setting the new benchmark for e-commerce fulfillment efficiency in the region.”

Kevin Stock, executive vice president of engineering at Geodis in Americas, says: “Locus allows us to unlock significant productivity improvements while also creating an engaging work environment for our teammates.

“We are excited to deploy the Locus solution at this flagship site in Mexico where we will provide transformative workflow automation and management insight for a globally admired brand.”

In August 2022, Geodis announced a new expansion agreement to deploy a total of 1,000 LocusBots at Geodis’ worldwide warehouse locations over the next 24 months. The announcement represented one of the industry’s largest AMR deals to date.
