Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, GA from April 4-7

New York, NY - March 10, 2016 - Massachusetts-based warehouse automation company Locus Robotics (www.locusrobotics.com) has announced that it will demonstrate its new, innovative order fulfillment solution at the MODEX 2016 tradeshow in Atlanta, GA from April 4 - 7 at booth #4670.


Locus Robotics will present the unique concepts and technology that will allow operations to pick orders faster. The collaborative process, where humans and LocusBots™ work side by side in the same space, is characterized by a 5-8 times improvement in user productivity, an ability to support different types of operations ranging from eCommerce to wholesale to store replenishment, and an approach that uses existing infrastructure to drive down solution cost and speed time to deployment.

"This will be Locus Robotics' first public event," said CEO and co-founder Bruce Welty. "We look forward to demonstrating to attendees how our innovations dramatically and simply increase productivity without sacrificing operational flexibility."
