Quiet Logistics, a Fulfillment to Consumer (F2C (News - Alert)) provider for leading fashion and apparel brands and e-tailers, announced expansion to its Kiva Systems robotic material handling system platform.
Quiet Logistics uses warehouse automation technologies and Kiva Systems material handling robots to accurately fulfill thousands of online orders quickly, accurately and beautifully.
Kiva Systems robots are used for warehouse automation. The company’s relatively new approach to automated material handling systems for order fulfillment is gaining traction in eCommerce fulfillment, retail restocking, parts distribution and medical device distribution operations.
Amazon recently acquired Kiva Systems for $775 million. Amazon spent over $4.6 billion last year on warehouses alone, so the acquisition is the perfect move for the online retailer.
As the only independent source for robotic fulfillment services, Quiet Logistics applies hardware and software technologies to fulfilling eCommerce orders for premium fashion and apparel brands and e-tailers in a professional manner.
"Kiva robotics is one part of the Quiet story," said Quiet CEO, Bruce Welty, in a statement. "We have been very diligent in our efforts to understand the implications of the Amazon acquisition of Kiva for our business.”
“We are very pleased with the consistent response from Amazon and Kiva, their commitment to continued support and our ability to source the equipment we need to fuel our continued growth and expansion,” Welty added. “The Amazon acquisition is a tremendous validation of our technology-centric strategy."
By combining best-in-class technology with a deep understanding of brand care, the company delivers exceptional and highly personalized customer experience. By offering product and brand care services such as order and inventory accuracy at competitive prices, the company ensures right product will arrive on time and in perfect condition.
Earlier this year, Quiet Logistics announced that it is expanding into branded footwear and children's apparel business following its agreement with Vida Group, a leader in building footwear and children's divisions from well-known apparel names.
Under the terms of the agreement, Quiet Logistics will manage the fulfillment for Vida's footwear brands including Pastry, Esprit and Union Bay and children's apparel brands Osh Kosh and Carters.
