WILMINGTON, MA — Locus Robotics, the market leader in autonomous mobile robots (AMR) for fulfillment warehouses, recently announced they have crossed the 100 million units picked milestone. Locus is the first company to reach this mark in the warehouse AMR industry’s history.

We continue to see tremendous year on year growth, and we look forward to continuing this momentum in 2020 and beyond.”

The record-breaking 100 millionth pick took place at the DHL Supply Chain fulfillment facility in Hanover, PA, at 5:38 AM ET on Tuesday, February 4th.

“LocusBots have been a great addition to our family,” said Eric Stipp, General Manager, DHL Hanover. “They’re not only helpful in sharing the workload and ensuring that the team is exceeding pick numbers, but they’re also fun to work with.”
