Warehouse helps IskayPet Group expand its network and better serve customers in Spain and Portugal
Fifty percent first-year growth in square meters under contract exceeds expectations
GXO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: GXO), the world’s largest pure-play contract logistics provider, celebrated the one-year anniversary of its warehouse in Ontígola, Toledo, where the company supports IskayPet’s outstanding growth. IskayPet is the leader in Iberia in pet care products.
“We are very pleased to partner with IskayPet and help better serve its clients, including through stores, clinics and ecommerce,” said Rui Marques, Managing Director, GXO Iberia. “Our strategic location in Ontígola helps us improve the efficiency and speed of stock management for IskayPet as well as offer high-quality service and the ability to meet demanding delivery schedules. We are also supporting IskayPet in their strong expansion in Spain and Portugal.”
Six years after launching its partnership with the IskayPet Group, GXO launched the Ontígola site in record time — just one month — facilitating a significant extension of the company’s business in Spain and Portugal and the rapid growth of IskayPet’s products, which include the popular brands Kiwoko, Tiendanimal, Kivet and Clínicanimal. The site already covers 30,000 square meters, a size the company had expected to reach in 2023, and manages an average of 15,000 inbound pallets and 20,000 outbound pallets per month, helping customers care for their pets across Iberia.
