COSS is a non-profit and commonbenefit association that promotes open source, open data, open standards and APIs. Internationally known as one of the oldest and most active centres for open-ness, COSS operates based on extensive cooperation, communication and networking. The aim of COSS is to strengthen the competitiveness of Finland’s software-intensive industries, promote the growth and internationalisation of open source businesses and enhance the development of the Finnish information society through the support of open technologies and communities.

Given their shared interests, both organisations intend to cooperate on a non-profit and common-benefit basis with each other, adhering to their respective statutes and applicable laws, particularly those concerning antitrust and competition regulations. “Due to its constantly growing network of over 50 member companies and supporting members as well as national and international partners COSS is an ideal network partner for us”, said Andreas Nettsträter, CEO of the Open Logistics Foundation.

“COSS and the Open Logistics Foundation share the belief that open source software and open standards are of crucial importance to various sectors, including the logistics industry and the public sector. This cooperation is a significant step forward in fostering innovation and transparency on an international level”, says Timo Väliharju, Executive Director at COSS.
