geodis robots indianapolisINDIANAPOLIS, IN: March 06, 2018. In a tight labor market and to improve its employee picking process on behalf of an apparel customer, Geodis has opted to use 30 autonomous mobile robots from Locus Robotics in a pilot program at its 139,000 sq.ft. warehouse in Indianapolis.

The company says the results have been “staggering” at the location that handles over 30,000 SKUs via a manual picking process that leaves little margin for error.

With a doubling of employee productivity, Geodis says it began with a 50 percent reduction in training as team members were taught in minutes how to work with robots on the warehouse floor – a process that also led to eliminating the need to pull pick carts.

“The labor market is tight, especially during peak seasons, and we want to enable our team to better execute for our customers. And in this case, the technological support of robots effectively solved the challenge,” commented Geodis CEO Marie-Christine Lombard.

The company says it now plans to expand the use of robotics on behalf of its other retail and e-commerce customers.

“Our robots enhance more than worker productivity; they improve worker job satisfaction by removing some of the more physically demanding aspects of the picking process,” claimed Locus Robotics CEO Rick Faulk.
