Locus Robotics has announced a new implementation with GEODIS 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.
