Quiet Logistics, Inc., which specialises in supplying services to apparel and lifestyle brands, today announced significant expansion with the opening of a world-class, 355,000 square foot fulfilment centre on Jackson Road in Devens, Massachusetts. The new facility creates 150 full-time jobs, and is designed to handle Quiet's current and projected growth, enabling the company to scale with customers and e-commerce industry growth.
