World, As Seen from the most beautiful islands: Ireland and Cyprus

IKEA in Ireland and the UK experiences logistic troubles


The Swedish store IKEA has to cut its assortment. A large number of IKEA stores in the UK and Ireland have delivery problems for about ten percent of the stock. This is how Supply Chain Magazine reports.

“As is the case with many retailers, our supply chains are constantly being put to the test due to Covid-19, Brexit and labour shortages. This has repercussions on transport, the purchase of raw materials and supplies. Add to this an increased customer demand, because more people spend more time at home. As a result, we are facing low availability of products in some of our range groups, such as mattresses,” an IKEA spokesperson told.

The problems in the UK and Ireland are largely related to Brexit and the shortage of truck drivers there. Increased demand and global logistics problems in shipping are the main factors. IKEA Chartered and bought ships and shipping containers for the first time in the past year.
