6 River Systems is a Massachusetts-based company that specializes in industrial automation for the retail industry. It uses technology such as the cloud software and robotics to produce its service.
The company's robots are referred to as "Chucks" which are capable of induct, picking, and takeoff within the warehouse. The robots receive orders from the company's cloud-based software and aids the human warehouse employee with completing the necessary task.

In order to navigate the warehouse, the robots use autonomous technology, similar to that used with vehicles. They run on batteries and can carry warehouse goods up to 160 pounds.
