Siemens Digital Logistics merges with LOCOM Software
Dec 17, 2018: The corporate merger of Siemens Digital Logistics GmbH, LOCOM Software GmbH and LOCOM Consulting GmbH was successfully completed on December 14, 2018. The merged entities will operate under the brand name Siemens Digital Logistics, which is the legal successor firm of the former LOCOM companies. The merger applies retroactively as of October 1, 2018.
Siemens Digital Logistics profits from decades of experience in the field of logistics digitalization and supports customer efforts to optimize their processes by enhancing transparency and efficiency. The goal of the merger is to become one of the leading providers of innovative digitalization and consulting services in the logistics sector, and to contribute decisively to shaping the future of the logistics industry with progressive ideas.
The managing directors of the new firm are Holger Schmitt (CEO), Christopher Christian (CFO), and the former CEO of LOCOM, Christian Schmidt (CTO). The company’s locations in Frankenthal and Karlsruhe (Germany) and Wroclaw (Poland) are to be further expanded. This merger will enable customers, including well-known companies in industry and trade as well as in logistics service-provider sector, to benefit from a new, strategically expanded solution portfolio featuring comprehensive, end-to-end coverage of the complete supply chain – ranging from consulting and both strategic and tactical planning to transparent and reliable management of supply chains and global logistics networks. This consolidated portfolio comprises not only custom-tailored consulting services, but also innovative IT solutions for reliably and effectively controlling cross-industry logistics networks, such as the Supply Chain Suite IT platform and the cloud-based logistics platform AX4.
Applying the digital twin approach enables planners to analyze complex logistics tasks based on real data, simulate solution approaches, and optimize processes iteratively. By combining multiple software products, it’s possible for example to configure and operate digital control tower solutions for various logistical scenarios. The company formerly called AXIT GmbH, under Siemens Group ownership already since 2015, began doing business as Siemens Digital Logistics as of October 2018.
With this recent fusion, SPPAL has bundled and broadened its range of offerings for holistic management of value-adding networks and supply chains. The merger underscores the ongoing strategic advancement of Siemens’ portfolio and the company’s long-term vision of expanding its market position for consulting and IT services aimed at the logistics sector.
