Cohesio Group, a renowned technology solutions provider, has reportedly inked a new, exclusive partnership agreement with Locus Robotics, an American autonomous mobile robot provider for warehouses. This partnership would see Cohesio Group implement AMR solutions from Locus Robotics for the very first time in APAC.
Locus Robotics, based out of Massachusetts, U.S., designs and manufactures AMRs (autonomous mobile robots) that collaboratively work alongside workers across fast-paced fulfillment and logistics facilities. The company has also proven track record of delivering 200% to 300% boost in productivity for several of the biggest logistics service providers and retailers in the world.
Recently, in March of 2020, the company announced a collaboration with DHL Supply Chain that would witness DHL deploying 1,000 AMRs by Locus Robotics across its 12 sites in North America.
Locus Robotics solutions can be used across a plethora of industry verticals, including e-commerce, store replenishment, wholesale, batch picking, discrete picking, and omnichannel among others.
This new collaboration with Cohesio Group becomes the first for Locus Robotics in the APAC region and would be the company’s first entry in the Asia Pacific market landscape.
Over the past few years, Cohesio has effectively proven the capabilities of AMRs by deploying these robots across several projects for a number of the region’s biggest logistics providers and retailers, including CEVA Logistics, Wesfarmers, and Bollore Logistics. The company is also responsible for the world’s first deployment of AMRs inside a cold storage environment.
Cohesio Group’s CEO, Nishan Wijemanne stated that the company has been finding ways to widen its portfolio as well as a service offering in the AMR and robotics industry. The firm knows that several logistics providers and retailers are witnessing an upsurge in e-commerce demand, which is leading them to re-think their operations.
Wijemanne added that through this new collaboration the company can add value to its clients and provide AMRs and technology solutions that would help them fulfil growing demands.
