The future of logistics is open source.

Away from silo thinking and media discontinuity, and towards common, cross-industry standards – what open source can do for logistics and supply chain management, and for your company.

We emphasise the need to have open discussions to create de-facto standards for logistics, one issue at a time. 

Rock OS. We create open source.

The Open Logistics Foundation promotes the collaborative development and commercial use of open source logistics software and hardware with the help of a unique Innovation Community. The Foundation operates the Open Logistics Repository, an open and neutral platform over which all components are developed and made available for any company interested.

Join OS. We give open source a home.

Joining the Innovation Community, every company has the chance to help create the future of open source in logistics and benefit from the solutions jointly developed. All components accommodated in the Open Logistics Repository are accessible for free for any company – also for being used commercially.
