Toys ‘R’ Us opens new distribution center in Canada
Toronto -- To better accommodate its customers in Western Canada, Toys “R” Us has partnered with SCI Logistics to open a new distribution center in Delta, British Columbia. The 180,000-sq.-ft. facility is strategically positioned to receive goods from overseas and domestic manufacturers who can now ship directly to British Columbia for distribution to local Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us stores.
“The new west coast distribution center provides us with the additional capacity and flexibility to service our customers and distribution needs in Western Canada,” said Krista Collinson, VP logistics, e-commerce & business development, Toys “R” Us, Canada.
SCI outfitted the new facility to include cross-docking, transload, order fulfillment and store replenishment capabilities, with the use of a fully automated sortation system that scales to support the large seasonal swings of the retail business. The new center adapts quickly to changing volume patterns, while achieving very high performance levels.
