Shopify, the leading multi-channel commerce platform, has announced that it has reached an agreement to acquire 6 River Systems, a leading provider of collaborative warehouse fulfilment solutions. This acquisition is a critical step to accelerate Shopify’s growth, while 6 River Systems will also continue to build and sell their solution for warehouses.

In June 2019, Shopify introduced the Shopify Fulfilment Network, a powerful and trusted fulfilment network that will ensure timely deliveries, lower shipping costs, and provide superb customer experience for merchants and their customers.

With the acquisition of 6 River Systems, Shopify will add a team with decades of experience in fulfilment software and robotics, including experienced leaders from Kiva Systems (now Amazon Robotics). Adding 6 River Systems’ cloud-based software and collaborative mobile robots called ‘Chuck’ to the Shopify Fulfilment Network will increase the speed and reliability of warehouse operations, by empowering on-site associates with daily tasks, including inventory replenishment, picking, sorting and packing, according to a press release by the company.

“Shopify is taking on fulfilment the same way we’ve approached other commerce challenges, by bringing together the best technology to help everyone compete. With 6 River Systems, we will bring technology and operational efficiencies to companies of all sizes around the world,” Tobi Lütke, CEO of Shopify said.

“By joining Shopify, we’re changing the game of fulfilment. Together, we will help thousands of businesses improve their fulfilment operations, with an easy-to-learn solution that can more than double productivity and improve accuracy,” Jerome Dubois, co-CEO and co-founder of 6 River Systems said.
