We present predictions for the total cross sections for pair production of squarks and gluinos at the LHC including a combined NNLL resummation of soft and Coulomb gluon effects. We derive all terms in the NNLO cross section that are enhanced near the production threshold, which include contributions from spin-dependent potentials and so-called annihilation corrections. The NNLL corrections at \ \sqrt{s}=13 \ TeV range from up to 20% for squark-squark production to 90% for gluino pair production relative to the NLO results and reduce the theoretical uncertainties of the perturbative calculation to the 10% level. Grid files with our numerical results are publicly available 1.
