IKEA launches Quebec DC

IKEA Canada has opened a distribution centre in Beauharnois, Que., clocking in at just over one million square feet. It replaces a 925,696-square-foot facility in Brossard, on the south shore of Montreal. The dual-purpose warehouse both ships to stores and fulfils e-commerce orders directly to customers. Automation features include a storage and retrieval system and an interface that detects the right size of box for an order.
