Since some months on many websites, I read and I have seen images of the Alibaba (the Chinese e-commerce giant) warehouses. One example is the following article:


It seems interesting and it seems really the same Amazon is doing with its Kiva Systems. The equivalent of Kiva Systems here should be a company called Quicktron but I am not able to find anything about it on the internet.

Someone of you has any knowledge about this company? A website?

We prefer practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face.

  • $\begingroup$ Hi and thanks for the answer. Indeed it was not a shopping question at all. I just wanted to know if someone had info about this company which seems doing a lot of interesting work but it is hard to track. They turned my question into a shopping one but this was not my intent. $\endgroup$
