E-commerce shipping and logistics provider Quiet Logistics is leading job growth in Devens, according to a report by the UMass Donahue Institute, and the company’s workforce is only expected to increase.
Quiet Logistics, which arrived in Devens in 2011, expanded its footprint when it leased 184,000 square feet of warehouse and distribution space on Barnum Road in November.
Brian Lemerise, vice president of third-party fulfillment at Quiet, said the company chose to grow beyond its existing 200,000-square-foot facility on Saratoga Boulevard because of high demand for fast delivery of apparel in the Northeast. Devens offers a prime location, Lemerise said, because it has good access to shipping by boat, freight and airplane. But the labor market is also strong.
