IKEA Canada opens DC in Kleinburg, Ontario

BURLINGTON, ON—IKEA has opened a 550,000sq-ft customer distribution centre in Kleinburg, Ontario. In partnership with DHL, the new location will allow IKEA to have its products in the right place, closer to its customers, while also providing increased capacity for growth, the company said.

The Kleinburg facility will focus on last mile delivery to customers’ homes and will complement the retailer’s four stores and Mississauga customer distribution centre in the Greater Toronto Area. The site has created roughly 120 indirect jobs, IKEA said, and is operated by DHL Supply Chain, the Americas leader in contract logistics and part of Deutsche Post DHL.

The new Kleinburg location is IKEA’s fourth customer distribution centre in Canada. The retailer opened its first centre in the Vancouver area last year and also operates facilities in the Montreal and Toronto areas.
