When IKEA opens at 10 AM, it is important we have emptied the trucks, received goods and replenished the shelves so we are ready for our customers.

As a truck driver you play an important part for IKEA’s customers and sales, because you and your team make sure our home furnishing solutions and accessories are always accessible for our customers. Every day is fast paced because we work with a sharp deadline at 10 AM, when the store opens.

- Handling of goods and stock taking, as well as updating IT systems accordingly
