JYSK opens new distribution centre in Bulgaria
Furniture retailer JYSK has opened a new distribution centre in Bulgaria.
Situated in Bozhurishthe on the outskirts of Sofia, the centre is the eighth JYSK logistics facility in Europe and is currently delivering items to nearly 80 stores in Bulgaria, Greece and Serbia.
Guests at the official opening ceremony included Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, the Minister of Economy Emil Karanikolov and the Ambassador of Denmark Søren Jacobsen.
JYSK logistics manager Jan Oliver-Schmidt said: “The distribution centre here in Bozhurishthe is built using the latest technology and it is by far the most modern in the region. When it is fully implemented in our supply chain, it will bring a lot of advantages to customers, stores and to the environment.”
Measuring 95,000 square metres, the centre has a total storage capacity for nearly 125,000 pallets.
The facility will start making deliveries to Romania in September and to Bosnia by the end of the year. In addition, it will begin a gradual implementation of online store deliveries in 2020. When it reaches full capacity, it will employ more than 200 people and serve more than 320 JYSK stores in the region.
JYSK has over 2,800 stores and 23,000 employees in 52 countries.
