The leading supply chain design software innovator Optilogic today announced a strategic partnership with Henkel, a German multinational industrial and consumer goods company. The partnership will help Henkel’s Adhesive Technologies business unit evaluate cost, service, risk, and sustainability trade-offs of future supply chain designs to ensure the most robust distribution network to serve customers.

The solutions enable a broad variety of applications in automotive, packaging, and electronics, among others.

“We have been looking for a supply chain design partner that aligns with our future vision of developing and scaling supply chain network study capabilities,” said the Head of Adhesive Logistics Network Development Europe for Henkel. “The Cosmic Frog solution is very well designed, making it easy to learn and use and it has the technical capabilities to scale and connect with various ETL tools. The Optilogic team has the expertise and commitment to support us as we expand our design practice.”

Through Optilogic’s 100-percent SaaS-based solution, Henkel Adhesive Technologies can quickly and efficiently convert legacy supply chain models into Cosmic Frog models and explore hundreds to thousands of potential scenarios to strengthen its distribution networks with a focus on cost optimization and minimizing CO2 emissions.

“We are proud to enter a long-term collaboration with Henkel and support their global supply chain initiatives,” said Optilogic Senior Vice President Oscar Torres. “With the power of cloud-based modeling, the Henkel team has an easy path to unlock significant competitive advantages as the company continues to grow.”
