Worldwide e-commerce sales topped $3.5 trillion in 2019 and are expected to nearly double by 2023 to more than $6.5 billion (Statistica). Locus's collaborative robots drive productivity to ensure that retail companies and third-party logistics (3PL) providers can keep up with consumer demand and meet fulfillment goals in today's booming retail landscape, despite the widespread scarcity of warehouse labor. Customers, including DHL, GEODIS, Port Logistics, Verst Logistics, SANDOW, Marleylilly, and Radial, are consistently achieving 2X to 3X improvements in productivity when deploying the Locus solution.
