EPG appoints new CEO for Americas

Supply chain software provider EPG also launches its route optimization solution into Americas market

Global supply chain software company EPG announced today it is embarking on an ambitious investment program across the Americas, and has made two significant hires as part of this effort. EPG has named industry veteran Larry Klimczyk as new CEO, Americas and Allen Rivet as VP Sales for the region.

With a four-decade global career in transportation logistics, the last 22 years of those leading tech solutions across Europe, Asia and the Americas, Klimczyk is perfectly placed to lead EPG’s team in North and South America, EPG added.

“This is a hugely exciting moment to join EPG because there is an enormous market waiting to be tapped across the Americas,” Klimczyk commented. “The logistics sector is looking for cutting-edge solutions that can be implemented quickly and painlessly, saving costs, and making efficiencies from day one onwards. Our customers have told us that they need to find ways to improve performance and service levels quickly while meeting labor market challenges at the same time – and they are telling us that LYDIA Voice, Greenplan and LFS do just that.”

Rivet has a 25+ year record in sales for a range of mobile and IT providers. “EPG’s solution set is uniquely positioned to drive immediate ROI and value for a Supply Chain challenged with driving cost out while increasing worker efficiency and adoption,” he commented. 

EPG offers multiple supply chain solutions, including warehouse management system (WMS) software, and its LYDIA voice picking solution. The German software company also announced it is launching Greenplan, its delivery route planning solution, into the America's, calling it an "important ingredient" of the company’s investment plan for the region. EPG added that Greenplan comes to the North and South American market laden with global awards, including first prize in the Amazon Last Mile Challenge.

According to EPG, Greenplan provides a unique algorithm which enables previously relatively fixed driver ‘routes’ or districts to overlap, beyond the traditional route boundaries and zip codes. This dramatically improves quality in terms of delivery times and optimizes costs and efficiencies for the provider, because significant savings in mileage and time management can be achieved. Further capabilities particularly suited to the North American market include a ‘multi-break’ option, which is particularly relevant for operators and drivers on single tours allocated over several days.
