The two will jointly operate a new 75k m2-big distribution & logistics centre in Bucharest, set to come online by mid-2021, on behalf of IKEA Supply AG.
The new BREEAM-certified facility, located in the CTPark Bucharest West industrial park, will be used by IKEA Supply AG as their distribution centre for in- and outbound operations for stores in South Eastern Europe and Eastern Mediterranean.
"We are very proud of this project, which will allow us to offer comprehensive and tailored logistics solutions to IKEA Supply AG. This is in line with our strategy of providing integrated logistics solutions and we come with experience from similar projects for IKEA Supply AG in other countries," Sedef Ayhan, Managing Director, Eastern Mediterranean, Maersk, commented.
Catalin Putineanu, Founder and Managing Partner, IB Cargo, added, "Over the past 12 years, we have grown in the freight forwarding industry by continuously adding and developing new services, so that we can deliver to our clients not only transport, but solutions that help them grow and optimise. Entering the warehousing market is therefore a natural development for IB Cargo, completing the range of services we offer to the customers. We strongly believe in continuous improvement and we apply those principles also in this project."
