Bruce Welty: “We think it’s part of the new American economy.”
Bruce Welty is CEO of Quiet Logistics, which fills orders and ships merchandise for retailers in the apparel industry. This entire operation was designed around the small orange robots made by a company outside Boston called Kiva. And can now be found in warehouses all over the country.
Steve Kroft: “Now this is the order that she is filling, right, on this screen.”
Bruce Welty: “Yes, in a typical warehouse, she'd have to walk from location to location with a number of totes. And that's the innovation here is that the product comes to her.”
