When people hear the words “automation” or “robotic integration” the first thought is a workplace that is all robots, no people. However, one company is turning that idea on its head by bringing collaborative robotics to warehouse floors.
Rick Faulk, CEO of Locus Robotics, joins Kaylee Nix on this episode of At Your Doorstep to talk about how Locus is working to make warehouse practices more efficient and safer with robotic technologies while preserving the existing workforce and workplace culture.
They discuss the recent announcement of a partnership with DHL and the plans to get Locus robots in warehouses in 2022. Nix and Faulk also explore how this partnership will change the way warehouses work in the future, including how companies utilize their human capital in different roles than the norm.
