Detsky Mir Cuts the Ribbon on New Distribution Center in Yekaterinburg
Moscow, Russia, 18 February 2022 – Detsky Mir Group, a multi-vertical digital retailer and the leader in the children’s goods sector in Russia and Kazakhstan, announces the launch of a distribution center in PNK Park Berezovsky, a Class A+ industrial park near Yekaterinburg.
The center’s grand opening took place on 17 February. The event was attended by Dmitry Ionin, Deputy Governor of the Sverdlovsk Region; Mikhail Vasilyev, Director General of the Investment Promotion Agency of the Sverdlovsk Region; Maria Davydova, CEO of PJSC Detsky Mir; Denis Gurov, Logistics Director at Detsky Mir; Dmitry Melnikov, director of the new distribution center; and representatives of partners and PNK Park Berezovsky.
The 63,200 sq. m warehouse facility is designed to handle 2.4 million SKUs, and will support smooth next-day delivery for at least 80% of online orders in the Ural Federal District. Goods destined for the Russian Far East and Kazakhstan will also be handled by the center.
The distribution center’s throughput is expected to be over 35,000 orders per day. The launch of the new warehouse facility will also create over 1,000 new jobs for local communities.
“The Sverdlovsk Region is a strategically important partner for the Company. The opening of this new distribution center will increase the attractiveness of the region to investors, provide new jobs, and drive further efficiency gains in delivering orders to Detsky Mir customers across the entire federal district,” emphasized Maria Davydova, CEO of Detsky Mir Group.
“One of the strengths of the Sverdlovsk Region is its unique position at the junction between regional and global transport links across Eurasia. Yevgeny Kuyvashev, Governor of the Sverdlovsk Region, places a particular emphasis on developing a local export-oriented cargo base, which will allow the region to cement its position as a transport and logistics hub and work with business to launch ambitious infrastructure projects just like this one. Detsky Mir’s goods will travel all across the Urals from right here in Berezovsky. On top of this, we are very excited indeed that 1,000 local people will be able to find a job at the new center,” commented Dmitry Ionin, Deputy Governor of the Sverdlovsk Region.
