BLG to operate new distribution centre for IKEA


Works have begun on a new distribution centre for Ikea in Elsdorf, Germany. BLG Logistics will operate there from fall 2018. From Elsdorf, BLG will in future be responsible for goods supply to final customers throughout northern Germany.

In the new distribution centre 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. 

The new site will cover 35,000 sq m with some 110 employees. It has a direct freeway connection and central location between Hamburg and Bremen.

BLG has worked with IKEA since 1997. Its distribution centre in Erfurt is one of IKEA’s largest warehouse locations in the company’s global network.
