Locanis opens United States branch
March 14, 2011 - MMH Editorial
Locanis AG, Europe’s leader in system solutions for process optimization and product tracking in warehouse logistics, today announced its expansion into the North American market.
The new branch in Denver, Colorado, will serve as a base from which Locanis can serve the entire North American logistics market with Locanis IntelliGence. This intralogistics solution, patented worldwide, allows control of the entire logistics chain. “We aim to develop growth opportunities across North America with this international expansion,” Bengt Tuner, CEO of Locanis, commented on the significance of the new branch. “We are particularly interested in this market in view of the fact that transport and logistics is one of the USA’s highest growth sectors. We’re excited about the opportunity to help our North American customers introduce the level of efficiency and transparency in their logistics operations that our European customers have been enjoying.”
Christopher Thaw, Director of Operations, takes up the position as head of the new branch office, immediately assuming responsibility for all North American business activities of Locanis. Before joining the intralogistics specialist, Thaw was CEO of Mile High Insurance and National Sales Director at Terresolve Technologies.
Thaw considers his key task to be marketing Locanis IntelliGence. The intralogistics solution allows complete handling from receipt of goods to warehouse processing, as well as optimization of the consignment of goods and control of all transportation processes. Implementation of Locanis IntelliGence generally leads to warehouse cost reductions of 20 and 30%.
