DEVENS, United States — The Quiet Logistics order fulfilment centre, here in Devens, Massachusetts, is indeed quiet. Unlike in a traditional shipping warehouse, there’s nobody rushing up-and-down the aisles of this 275,000 square-foot facility (roughly the size of five football fields) packed with approximately 1.5 million units of inventory, 95 percent of which is fashion apparel and accessories sold by companies like Nasty Gal and Bonobos. Instead, employees are concentrated at the very front of the building.
