Partners CEVA Logistics and leading home furnishings company Ikea, confirmed the newest customer distribution center on the east coast this week. The opening of the new CDC is another testament to the almost four-year partnership between the two companies.
“We have developed an excellent working relationship with IKEA where we have focused on the cultural alignment between our two companies so that we can deliver the operational excellence IKEA demands every time,” said Brett Bissell, CEVA’s Chief Operating Officer, Contract Logistics. “We’ve used our logistics expertise to design and deliver solid solutions which specifically meet your needs and enable this huge facility to run effectively. We then combine the skills and experience of our operations managers and supply chain designers to make the building work for you on a day-to-day basis.”
The 200-acre area located on the west shore on Staten Island has already kicked off successful operations and focuses on delivering large items and online orders.
“We are proud to partner with CEVA logistics to operate our new Staten Island fulfillment center, which has brought 200 new jobs in the market,” said Tanja Dysli, Customer Fulfillment Manager, IKEA Retail U.S. “The new facility will help meet the delivery needs of our New York-area customers whether they are shopping in our stores, the IKEA Planning Studio or online.”
