Finnish supply chain platform Relex Solutions has raised €500 million at a valuation of €5 billion.

The latest funding round, which was led by New York-based company Blackstone Growth, brings the company’s total funding to date to €700 million.

“Retail and supply chain planning used to be dominated by incumbents and their legacy technologies, but our growth into a market leader shows that the industry is ready for a change,” said Mikko Kärkkäinen, group chief executive and co-founder, Relex Solutions. “We are proud to welcome Blackstone, with their unparalleled experience in the field, on our journey as we redouble our commitment to both technological innovation and our vision for truly unified planning.”
