Simulation Software SCALA

The Leading Tool for Strategic Transport Cost Optimization through Analyses and Simulations

SCALA is the indispensable tool for companies and logistics consultants who have to make strategic decisions on transport tenders, logistics concepts, network and location alternatives. SCALA allows you to calculate, analyze, compare and visualize any logistics scenarios for the future based on real, historical shipment data and their extrapolation.

How Simulation Software SCALA Will Benefit Your Business

SCALA imports detailed shipment data from ODBC databases, Microsoft Excel and from our transport management system LP2. You can then selectively manipulate this data in SCALA for various analyses (e.g. for introducing new charges, changed shipment weights/quantities or shifts in the distribution of destinations, etc.). With the included statistics tool SP2, you can evaluate, compare, and visualize any data, whether tender bids from forwarders or complex logistics scenarios.

Organize Strategic Tenders More Efficiently

High volume shippers regularly have to conduct strategic tenders in order to conclude or renew competitive framework agreements with logistics service providers for contract logistics. Such tenders require enormous organizational and communication efforts. Offers in these tenders have to be requested, reviewed and compared over several stages. This process ties up personnel, and costs a lot of time and money.

With the TenderingPortal, Städtler Logistik presents a web-based, highly efficient tendering platform developed as an add-on to the simulation software SCALA, which simplifies tender management substantially. This frees up the logistics experts in your company from a lot of administrative work in the context of tenders for contract logistics.

Modern web technologies
TenderingPortal is based on modern web and database technologies. You can flexibly configure the appearance, the operation, and individually adapt information output.

SCALA acts as a calculation engine

High-performance data exchange with Excel (e.g. quotations from service providers)

Safe multi-tier-architecture with access to existing databases


Browser-based access/independent of the client operating system
Learn how TenderingPortal optimizes strategic tendering processes for contract logistics

  • Enables structured, verifiable document and information exchange – even in complicated, multi-level tendering processes
