The operator quickly expanded its activity to include e-commerce services. For 5 years, it has been supporting the development of the electronic sales channel of the global furniture giant in Dortmund, and also manages a logistics platform with an area of 156,000 sqm in Salzgitter, from where all stores and logistics centers of this brand in Germany are supplied. As part of the cooperation, which also covers other locations, ID Logistics is responsible for the management of warehouse services, including order picking, packing, cross-docking and distribution.
