ANN ARBOR, Mich. & SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LLamasoft, a global leader in supply chain optimization software and solutions, and FLEXE, the first and largest marketplace for warehousing services, are proud to announce that LLamasoft customers can now easily incorporate the FLEXE marketplace data into their LLamasoft supply chain models. LLamasoft will provide integrated access to FLEXE data as part of its cloud-based Data Services.
FLEXE connects organizations that need warehousing space and services with organizations that have excess space and labor.

Access to FLEXE’s marketplace will enable LLamasoft customers to add capacity as needed without long-term contracts. Customers can identify available warehouses based on location and desired rate, and then feed that data into LLamasoft supply chain models to determine if adding warehouse space and services is the best course of action.
