DHL Supply, the contract logistics division of DHL, says it has reached the milestone of 500 million picks accomplished using Locus Robotics ' LocusBot autonomous mobile robots.

This achievement underscores the transformative impact of Locus' AMR technology on productivity and operational efficiency at an unprecedented scale.

The historic 500 millionth pick occurred on May 18, 2024, at DHL's Toledo, Spain facility, where a LocusBot retrieved a consumer home goods product.

“Locus Robotics has been a trusted partner in this effort and this milestone achievement underscores the improved productivity, accuracy, and employee ergonomics we've enjoyed across our global network.”

With LocusBots deployed at more than 35 DHL-managed sites worldwide, the partnership between the two companies continues to thrive, setting new benchmarks for efficiency and performance in the logistics industry.

Rick Faulk, CEO of Locus Robotics, says:“We are thrilled to celebrate this momentous achievement with our esteemed partner, DHL Supply Chain.

“Their unwavering commitment to innovation and their trust in our LocusBot solution have been instrumental in attaining this remarkable milestone.

“We are proud to play a pivotal role in DHL's ongoing success and look forward to many more milestones as we continue our collaboration.”
