CEVA Logistics Mexico has been appointed to operate a new dedicated warehouse to support IKEA Mexico’s operations in the country.

The Mexico City IKEA Store will become the company’s first retail location in Latin America and CEVA has been awarded a multi-year contract to operate it. The new facility marks the extension of the existing global partnership between the two companies, adding another market region to the expanding portfolio CEVA has developed with IKEA globally over the past five years.

CEVA will be responsible for all operational activities of the new CEDIS (Distribution Centre). CEVA will utilise its Matrix IT platform to manage all the warehouse processes. The partnership between CEVA and IKEA Mexico signals regional economic growth and will create many job opportunities.

Says Dominik Dittrich, CEVA’s Executive Vice President of Contract Logistics, North America: “We are delighted to have been awarded this long-term contract with IKEA Mexico. This is testimony to our expertise in customer and retail logistics and to our dedication. Our experienced team members are working hard to get everything in place in time for the official opening and we are excited to support the IKEA Mexico team in this new adventure.”
