Ikea signs deal with DX

Ikea signs deal with DX

DX, the independent parcels, mail and logistics operator, is pleased to announce that it has agreed a major new contract with IKEA to provide a bespoke logistics solution for customer deliveries.

The contract is for an initial three years and takes the total value of the Company’s contracted logistics work for IKEA to approximately £19m per annum.

DX already provides IKEA with a flexible, bespoke logistics solution to support IKEA’s online sales in two regions and its store business in Reading.  The Company will now support IKEA’s sales across seven additional stores.

DX will operate dedicated service centres, situated in close proximity to each IKEA store, to support the enlarged contract and will offer same-day 2 man deliveries, advanced booking and a returns service.  Management believes that the flexibility of DX’s delivery solution is market-leading in the logistics market, enabling its customers to improve their proposition and enhance customer service levels and quality.

Stuart Godman, Managing Director of DX Freight, said:

"We are delighted to have expanded and extended the services that we provide to IKEA.  This contract is further evidence of DX Logistics’s ability to deliver high volumes to an exacting standard, and we look forward to continuing to deliver an excellent service to IKEA and all our customers."
