According to Andover-based Quiet Logistics, its outsourced services provides retail websites with the robotics of Kiva Systems Inc.

The Quiet Logistics press releaseincluded a statement from Da Kim, chief executive of New York-based La Garçonne.

While it is important for an e-commerce retailer to create a website that provides customers with a fun shopping experience, it's equally important that the retailer's fulfillment center can deliver on product quality, packaging, order accuracy and, if needed, easy return processing, said Kim, and that was among the reasons why La Garçonne decided to hire Quiet Logistics.
