Designing your best Supply Chain with LOCOM Software

Supply Chain Planning

Optimal supply chain alignment is an important competitive factor for every company.

Fewer costs, minimal stock, optimal service levels: Markets and customers demand constant planning and rationalization along the entire chain of logistics.

LOCOM’s planning software supports the strategic and tactical alignment of both inbound and outbound supply chains. Adapt more easily to new operational circumstances by having decision relevant information more readily available.

All planning rests on representative real data and the general conditions that describe the logistics network under analysis. This data is carefully modeled and processed by software designed to analyze, simulate, and optimize logistics.

LOCOM’s software contains integrated distance reference works and calculation functions that enable you to easily discover patterns for shipping distances and volumes, weekly shipping tenor, and transport costs per item. Generous geographical material uses maps to visualize global logistics networks and enhance your logistics planning.

Beginning with your given operational circumstances, LOCOM software generates a model of your supply chain that will serve as the starting point for optimizing your logistics activities.
