LOCOM, the company for supply chain planning and software situated in Karlsruhe, Germany, has begun a strategic partnership with the American company LLamasoft, Inc., seated in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The purpose of the partnership is to bundle continental competence, create a thoroughly global range of performance, and together develop new software products for supply chain visibility and optimization.

Global supply chains are arising around the world. New software packages will increase their efficiency and profitability by focusing on design, visibility, and control. They will enable companies to adjust and optimize logistics processes and structures to meet increasingly complex and volatile market demands.

Volker Klohr, founder and Managing Director of LOCOM announces: “We are happy to strategically combine our special European experience and competence with our American partners at LLamasoft. Together we command comprehensive supply chain expertise and outstanding technology.”

Donald A. Hicks, CEO and founder of LLamasoft agrees: “LOCOM is exactly the right partner for us in the German and European market. The strategic, technological, and cultural match of our two companies is striking. Together we can raise momentum in developing new products for global supply chain design and planning.”


LOCOM is an internationally active consulting and software company that plans, simulates, and optimizes supply chains. Since 1988 LOCOM has helped national and international companies in industry, trade, and services to integrate their international and intercontinental chains of value creation.
