Devens robots to send holiday shipments
By: Sam Bonacci
Devens distributor Quiet Logistics has added robots to its warehouse holiday workforce this year in a partnership with Locus Robotics, the companies announced Tuesday.
In addition to its 550 seasonal hires to handle the shipping load, Quiet will be using multi-fulfillment robots to get out orders for e-commerce companies such as Zara, Bonobos and Bluefly. Working within the existing infrastructure, the robotic systems reduce costs and increase productivity while giving improved order accuracy and time to ship, according to Andover-based Locus.
