The team who delivers quantitative supply chains


We believe that quantitative supply chains are the future: where every possible future gets a probability, where every possible decision gets an economic score, and where control is given back to management thanks to extensive automation. Lokad's goal is to make this future a reality. We help companies do more with their supply chains, their inventories and their production capacities than classical methods would ever allow. Our technology combines big data and machine learning. Our teams deliver the supply chain expertise.

Lokad is the winner of the Microsoft Azure Partner of The Year 2010 Award and was named as one of Europe’s 100 hottest startups by Wired Magazine (Sept. 2012).
