The ranking is based on GXO’s operational excellence and ability to achieve IKEA’s goals through key performance indicators (KPIs), including productivity, outbound quality and inventory accuracy.
“We are proud to earn this no. 1 ranking among IKEA’s global network of Customer Distribution Centers,” said Eduardo Pelleissone, President, Americas and Asia Pacific. “We always strive to meet and exceed our customers’ goals and our team in Quakertown has proven their ability to do this.”
At the 195,000-square-foot Quakertown facility, GXO employs over 260 team members who provide warehouse services that include ecommerce parcel fulfillment as well as receipt, put-away, pick, pack and ship.
“In April, IKEA announced a three-year $2.2+ billion investment in our omnichannel growth strategy in the U.S,” said Tolga Öncü, the head of IKEA Retail. “The U.S. is one of our most important markets, and we see endless opportunities to grow here and get closer to our customers with affordable products and services.”
