Locus Robotics, the leader in autonomous mobile robots (AMR) for fulfillment warehouses, has won the 2022 IFOY Award for its Autonomous Mobile Robot Solution in the Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV/AMR) category following a comprehensive, three-stage audit held over a 5-day period.
“Locus Robotics is honored to be chosen as a 2022 IFOY Award winner,” said Rick Faulk, CEO of Locus Robotics. “The rigorous IFOY testing and evaluation process and the prestige of the award itself, validates the innovation and completeness of the Locus solution to deliver proven and cost-effective automation solutions for our customers around the world.”
Now in its tenth 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. A total of 14 products from 12 companies were tested and evaluated during grueling IFOY Test Days, held in March at the Messe Dortmund exhibition center.
“The 10 years of the IFOY Award stand for 10 years of outstanding innovations,” emphasized jury chair Anita Würmser. “In 2022, the finalists have once again presented top products in the competition that will shape the future of intralogistics in the long term.”
“The IFOY Award represents the best of the world’s most innovative logistics technologies,” said Denis Niezgoda, Vice President, EMEA & APAC of Locus Robotics. “We’re proud to have been selected for this prestigious award and to have competed alongside such an innovative group of nominees.”
All finalists competed in a standardized, in-depth, three–stage audit that began on March 18th in Dortmund, Germany. The IFOY jury was comprised of 26 internationally recognized trade journalists and leading logistics media representing over 21 countries. Judges assessed each finalist across a range of key categories, including innovation value, technology, ergonomics and handling, safety, marketability, design, customer benefits, cost–effectiveness, and sustainability. In addition, for the third year in a row, numerous potential buyers were also on site during the Test Camp Intralogistics.
