BLG to operate new distribution center for IKEA


On Thursday this week, the foundation stone was laid for a new distribution center in Elsdorf. BLG LOGISTICS will start operations there from fall 2018 for its customer IKEA. From Elsdorf, BLG will in future be responsible for goods supply to final customers throughout northern Germany.

In the new distribution center in Elsdorf, Lower Saxony, BLG will take over incoming goods handling as well as storage and picking of all products ordered online. The warehouse will comprise more than 36,000 storage spaces and will pick and dispatch goods for customers in the regions Hamburg, Kiel, Lübeck, Bremerhaven, Bremen, and Oldenburg. 

At the new location, BLG will ensure smooth processing for its customer on a site covering 35,000 m² with some 110 employees. With its direct freeway connection and central location between Hamburg and Bremen, Elsdorf offers ideal conditions for fast delivery of goods in the region. 

BLG has already been active for IKEA since 1997. Its distribution center in Erfurt is one of IKEA's largest warehouse locations in the company's global network.
