Locus Robotics, E2 Solutions partner for HighJump warehouse management system

Published 11 April 2018

Locus Robotics, a provider of autonomous, collaborative robots for use in e-commerce fulfillment warehouses, has partnered with E2 Solutions, a supply chain and IT consulting provider for small to medium-sized businesses.

This partnership fully integrates HighJump warehouse management system (WMS) and Locus's innovative warehouse robotic solution for more efficient deployments and faster ROI. Locus's solution is also now available to E2's extensive portfolio of supply chain businesses.

Locus Robotics sales SVP Al Dekin said: "E2's extensive experience with HighJump WMS implementations will enable us to deliver faster and more seamless implementations for our customers.”

Locus's turnkey warehouse robotics fulfillment solution enables third-party logistics (3PL) providers to achieve more efficient e-commerce fulfillment operations, while simultaneously lowering labor costs and effectively managing seasonally fluctuating order volumes.

The combination of E2 Solutions' extensive integration expertise, HighJump's industry-leading WMS, and Locus's autonomous mobile robots work together to deliver a more robust, and fully end-to-end warehouse management solution to joint clients and partners. This further addresses the rising labor costs and workforce availability challenges facing distribution and logistics channels.

"We look forward to working with Locus to deliver unprecedented operational fulfillment efficiencies to 3PL and logistics companies around the world," said Erik Easton, CEO of E2 Solutions.

Locus will be doing live picking demonstrations using their innovative LocusBots at booth #B4277 at MODEX 2018, the leading trade show for the supply chain, manufacturing and distribution industries in Atlanta, Georgia, April 9-12th.

Locus Robotics has quickly become the leading warehouse robotics provider for retailers and third-party logistics (3PL) operators looking to meet the shifting demands of the booming e-commerce market, expected to grow by 20% (CAGR) to become a $4 trillion global market by 2020 (Nielson).

E2 Solutions provides supply chain consulting, HighJump expertise and IT consulting for small to medium sized businesses to help solve distribution and inventory problems.
