Ann Arbor, Mich.—Oct. 8, 2014.—LLamasoft, a global provider of supply chain design software solutions, and CLX Logistics, a supply chain benchmarking and consulting firm, announced an agreement to offer European truckload, global ocean and global parcel data to LLamasoft customers for use in strategic supply chain design.
CLX offers a dedicated transportation benchmark service and the number of companies using the service is growing substantially. The CLX Benchmark database contains in excess of EUR 4.1 billion contracted transportation expenditure (no spot market) with detailed data on a full range of global, pan-European and domestic routes, and a variety of transport modes. CLX rate benchmarking service is now available to LLamasoft customers through a referral agreement. The partnership provides LLamasoft customers with an additional resource from which to draw valuable global reference data for use in supply chain modeling.
“The growing number of companies participating in our benchmarking proves the added value that our accurate and reliable apple-to-apple comparison brings,” said Marc Huijgen, CLX Logistics European vice president. “We have seen companies that considered their processes to be best-of-breed saving double-digit percentages after deploying our benchmark data in their procurement strategy.”
“Making CLX rate benchmarking service available to our customers is part of our continuing effort to help fill in missing model data—thus removing one of the biggest obstacles to successful supply chain design initiatives,” said LLamasoft president and CEO Donald Hicks. “Highly sought-after European truckload data will enable a higher level of data accuracy in modeling to help support critical supply chain decision-making.”
