Nominees will compete in-person using a three-stage process during the international IFOY test days.
Locus Robotics, the leader in autonomous mobile robots (AMR) for fulfillment warehouses, has been chosen as a finalist for the 2022 IFOY Award for Autonomous Mobile Robot Solution in Dortmund, Germany. In its ninth year, the IFOY awards are considered the industry’s premier award recognizing the year’s best intralogistics products and solutions for their outstanding technical and strategic achievements.
“Locus Robotics is proud to be chosen to compete in the prestigious 2022 IFOY Awards for the first time, “said Rick Faulk, CEO of Locus Robotics. “Today’s AMR technology has quickly become a value resource driving warehouse efficiency and scalability.”
Locus Robotics will compete in–person at the IFOY Audit starting on March 18th in Dortmund, Germany. All finalists will go through a three–stage IFOY Audit during the international IFOY Test Days. In the IFOY Test, experts use a standardized procedure to measure the key figures of the finalists. Winners will be announced at a special gala event following a detailed, 2–week evaluation period.
The IFOY jury is comprised of internationally recognized trade journalists and leading logistics media representing over 21 countries. They will be assessing each finalist across a range of key categories, including innovation value, technology, ergonomics and handling, safety, marketability, design, customer benefits, cost–effectiveness, and sustainability.
Locus Robotics’ revolutionary, multi–bot solution incorporates powerful and intelligent autonomous mobile robots that operate collaboratively with human workers to dramatically improve piece–handling productivity 2–3x, with less labor compared to traditional piece handling systems. Locus helps retailers, 3PLs and specialty warehouses efficiently meet – and exceed – the increasingly complex and demanding requirements of fulfillment environments. Easily integrating into existing warehouse infrastructures without disrupting workflows, Locus transforms productivity without transforming the warehouse.
