Körber Acquiring a Majority Stake in Otimis
The Körber Group continues to invest in its Business Area Logistics Systems, acquiring a majority stake in Brazil-based Otimis Ltda. The supply chain management software and consulting company grows and strengthens warehousing and logistics operations for customers across the globe. The acquisition became effective as of December 18, 2019.
In light of advances in technology and digitization of supply chain processes, companies are looking for supply chain technology partners that can service them on a global basis. To address this market demand for global providers, Körber Logistics Systems has extended its service and support capabilities into Latin America with addition of Otimis. Otimis extends Körber’s existing customer service capabilities in North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.
Otimis has been an implementation partner and reseller of the supply chain management solutions of Körber Logistics’ company Highjump since 2004. By joining Körber, Otimis now has access to a complete portfolio of supply chain technologies including supply chain management software, industrial voice solutions, autonomous mobile robotics (AMR) and material handling automation.
Otimis has locations in Blumenau and São Paulo (Brazil) and Santiago (Chile) with plans for expansion in Mexico. This follows Körber’s recent acquisition of the majority stake in the Cohesio Group, the leading integrator of voice-directed and AMR solutions for logistics in APAC.
