Logistical Operations Knowledge Institute

Founded in the early years of the Martian Association of Free Colonies, this is one of the most influential think-tanks on trade development, with offices throughout the MAFC and branches on many other worlds.

Particularly well known for its logistical algorithms that maximise trade income by optimising trade routes with cargos.

Over time LOKI has also been of immense use to government bodies such as MAIDS in that it has considerable information on trade, smuggling, and is able to spot unusual activity (such as that which might occur around the construction of an illegal SAID as defined by the Stickney Treaty) by monitoring movement and trade trends, universe-wide.

It is also a useful information source on trends in piracy.

The headquarters is on New Mars and the director, in 3212 is Ms Kylie Jontir
