This is pretty relevant news, basically following the Amazon playbook back when they bought KIVA Systems a couple of years ago (now Amazon Robotics). 6river was founded by ex-Kivas and was considered one of the independent leaders in warehouse automation. Warehouses and FCs are pretty ripe for automation disruption and this makes perfect sense if they want to achieve scale and compete with Amazon. Amazon Robotics is the clear leader in warehouse automation by now and a big part of their moat around logistics. Typically these robots can achieve 2-3x productivity gains vs. manual labor.
