VF is utilizing a groundbreaking form of automation—by way of robots—to heighten a safe work environment for associates that increases productivity three-fold.
A crew of 11 robots have joined VF associates at a distribution center (DC) in Martinsville, VA, for a pilot program that launched in August 2020. The bots, manufactured by Locus Robotics, create an ergonomic workspace and help support associates by increasing social distancing in response to COVID-19. With health and safety more critical than ever and productivity up 63%, VF is looking to bring bots to DCs throughout the globe.
