The supply chain design solutions provider LLamasoft said this week it has partnered with the commercial real estate services provider Cassidy Turley to provide industrial real estate cost data and other information for top U.S. markets to LLamasoft customers for their use in strategic supply chain design.
Cassidy Turley cost and operating expense data will be included within LLamasoft’s cloud-based data services application, a supply chain design reference and benchmark data offering. The partnership gives LLamasoft customers and the LLamasoft solutions team access to current industrial real estate information to incorporate into their strategic supply chain models.
“The increasing focus by global businesses on total landed cost analysis necessitates more detailed, real-world (distribution center) costs,” said Toby Brzoznowski, executive vice president of LLamasoft. “By adding Cassidy Turley commercial real estate data, we’re helping our customers to create better and more accurate supply chain designs that can result in significant reduction in cost and risk.”
Ed Lampitt, senior vice president and principal with Cassidy Turley, said, "Historically, obtaining up-to-date real estate cost data has been a challenge for the supply chain industry. Integrating real estate data and strategy into the supply chain process is imperative for evaluating, optimizing, and implementing an efficient and effective supply chain.”
The partnership with Cassidy Turley is one of a number of similar partnerships Llamasoft has struck in recent months to augment the data that underlies its design tools.
