WASHINGTON, Apr 7 (FAM) – DHL Supply Chain will begin pilot testing a new autonomous robotics solution at a life sciences facility in the US within the next two months.

The robots, called ‘LocusBots’ and supplied by Locus Robotics, will be tested as a picker companion for piece picking order fulfilment at a Tennessee warehouse.

DHL said the robots were designed to work collaboratively and safely alongside warehouse staff, helping to quickly locate and transport picked items, so pickers did not have to push carts or carry bins.
