ABSTRACT
The article reports that IKEA Distribution Services is reacting to the growing number of online orders with a new order tracking system to help it manage deliveries. Don Marshall, deputy customer distribution manager at IKEA Distribution services, said that in addition to delivering more of the right product at the right time, the company is also benefiting from increased visibility across the supply chain. The company, which manages all IKEA's deliveries, has installed the data capture system Nucleus IS from Zetes to increase visibility of orders after they leave its distribution centre.
