Ikea, Rhenus unite to expand warehousing ops & deliveries

Ikea said it will partner with Rhenus, an international logistics firm, to expand its delivery services in Delhi-NCR (National Capital Region). Rhenus will by early next year establish a warehouse capable of storing and fulfilling over 7,000 products. The warehouse will boost the company’s operational efficiency, including seamless doorstep delivery to the customers as well as fulfilling the orders within 24 hours. The agreement with Rhenus will “elevate the home delivery experience” for customers in the Delhi-NCR, said Ikea in a statement. “Our collaboration with Rhenus transcends decades. Bringing their expertise and experience in growing Ikea in other global markets to our operations here is an exciting opportunity for both in our India journey,” said Saiba Suri, Ikea Country Customer Fulfilment Manager.
