Kentucky-based third-party logistics provider Bluegrass Supply Chain (Bluegrass) has announced a new partnership with Locus Robotics, a developer of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), to optimise its order fulfilment processes.
The logistics company hopes to improve customer experiences by implementing automation throughout its warehousing and distribution operation in the area.
Some of the benefits Bluegrass has reported as a result of the partnership include increased efficiency through time reduction, minimisation of touchpoints and optimisation of travel times.
As part of its broader warehouse automation strategy, the company also recently collaborated with ReverseLogix, a developer of software solutions for reverse logistics.
“We always prioritise the ROI for our customers and our company,” said Raquel Summers, COO of Bluegrass Supply Chain.
“By adding our Locus Robots, we have significantly reduced the time it takes to train our team members, increased the pace of production, improved the quality of part identification and strengthened our safety procedures.”
John Higgins, CEO of Bluegrass Supply Chain, added: “By embracing and setting future goals for automation at Bluegrass, we are making it possible to provide faster, safer and more reliable services to our valued customers.”
