VAUGHAN, Ontario—Online retailer Amazon.com Inc was so enamoured with Kiva Systems LLC’s orange, storage pod retrieval robots, that in March of this year it purchased the automated materials handling company for US$775 million.

A Canadian 3PL, Think Logistics, understands the attraction. The company recently took possession of 15 Kiva robots and has deployed them in its Vaughan, Ontario-based warehouse.

Think Logistics invited MM&D into to its facility for an exclusive, first-look at the system in action.
