CLX Logistics LLC, parent company of ChemLogix LLC, has established international operations with the acquisition of Netherlands-based LHC Consulting, a consultancy firm offering supply chain management and logistics services to multiple industries throughout Europe.
With skill sets in logistics and technology implementation, in-depth knowledge of the European transportation market and a large European client base, LHC Consulting brings the essential resources necessary for CLX Logistics to expand its position in Europe while enhancing service to its current international customers.
"Through the acquisition of LHC Consulting, we can provide both transportation management system (TMS) technology and consultancy services such as logistics strategy development, benchmarking, carbon footprinting and network optimization throughout Europe on an accelerated pace," notes Steve Hamilton, CEO and President of ChemLogix, LLC. "With a help desk and TMS experts right in Europe, we can also provide more timely service to our existing European customers."
As an Advanced Business Partner of IBM, CLX Logistics expects to leverage its achievements with IBM’s On Demand Global TMS service within the European Market. Walt Heil, Worldwide Sales Lead for IBM’s Supply Chain Products, states "We have had great success for the past nine years with CLX in North America, and more recently with marquee accounts in Europe. We anticipate that CLX’s expansion into Europe will enable IBM to accelerate the growth of TMS both in Europe and on a global scale. Based on our conversations with the new CLX European management team we are excited and impressed by their breadth and depth of supply chain knowledge and experience. This is a strong fit."
LHC Consulting will continue to maintain operations under its established name as a division of CLX Logistics Europe.
