Simulation


“What if…” – Simulations Prepare Your Logistics for the Future


You can't rely on a gut feeling in logistics. Why is that? Because countless intricately connected factors influence the results.

The solution? Software that understands these complex inter­de­pen­den­cies, as well as direct and indirect effects, and thus enables you to take informed, well-founded decisions.

Overview


Plan Safely for the Future with Simulations and a Comprehensive Data Basis

We offer answers to the essential question: What if? You define the scenario, our software simulates the effects. The simulations are based on comprehensive logistics data from your systems: tariffs, quantities, weights, distances, destinations, distribution, etc.

Sounds complicated and a lot of work? Städtler Logistik solutions make it easy for you. Our software solutions use relational databases. For example, if you are already working with our transport management system LP2, all historical data needed for simulations in SCALA is already available and waiting to be used. You can easily import data from other systems via MS Excel or ODCB databases. Then you're ready to go: You change the data as desired (tariffs, locations, distances, etc.) and run the simulation, compare and visualize.

Transport Cost Optimization


Targeted Transport Cost Optimization through Valid Analyses and Simulations

 SCALA is Städtler Logistik’s market-leading solution for freight cost simulation and analysis. Staff and management alike are presented with new possibilities to compare the effects of various alternatives by extrapolating historical logistics data.

  • Will you really profit from switching service providers or lo­ca­tions, changing your delivery structure or using new transportation routes?
  • And if yes, how much? How should your company react to changes in the logistics environment?
What our simulation solution SCALA does for transport cost optimization:
Freight cost simulation based on historical shipment data

Detailed numbers and comparisons provide arguments for price negotiations in your freight tenders
Informed analysis and comparison of differently structured quotations according to various criteria including destination area, weight classes, distance scales

Integration and comparison of various distance modules
Simulation of logistics costs with changes in output variables

Visualization of shipment structures in world maps and Google Earth
Support in strategic planning and freight cost control: site relocation, reduced number of service providers, comparison of various carriers

Freely definable criteria for data manipulation
SCALA simulates the effects of various scenarios and supports strategic and tactical planning processes. Analyze and visualize the results in our statistics tool, SP2. This high-performance statistics software for logistics is included in the SCALA package.

You can summarize, format and visualize the results of the simulations in charts in just a few clicks – for quick, easy and reliable interpretation.

Simulation in Strategic Logistics Tendering


Targeted Foresight: The More Professional Way to the Right Logistics Partner

Within the framework of a call for tenders, you’ve gathered bids from various logistics service providers. Each bidder has his strengths and weaknesses. Each service provider offers different tariffs with various structures, depending on factors such as weight, distance, destination, location and range of services.

The analysis and simulation software SCALA helps you make the best possible decision. Using your historical freight data, the effects of the new tariffs are calculated down to the smallest detail. The comparison shows you where the strengths and weaknesses of the individual offers lie and – most importantly – how these will affect your transport costs and budget.

How our simulation solution SCALA helps optimize strategic tenders:
Freight cost simulation based on historical shipment data

Integration and comparison of various distance modules

Informed analysis and comparison of differently structured quotations according to various criteria including destination area, weight classes, distance scales
Simulation of logistics costs with changes in output variables

Visualization of shipment structures in world maps and Google Earth

Detailed numbers and comparisons provide arguments for price negotiations in your freight tenders

Freely definable criteria for data manipulation

Reliable data from SCALA and convincing visualizations from the integrated statistics tool SP2 strengthen your negotiating position. Simulations enable you also to recognize where tariff differences have the greatest influence on your transport costs and to find the least expensive bid for each case by 'cherry picking'.

Simulation for Your Routing & Scheduling


How to Use Transport Capacities Even More Efficiently by Simulating Alternative Planning Scenarios

TRAMPAS – The Professional Routing & Scheduling System
The routing and scheduling software TRAMPAS sets standards in logistics. Get to know our proven system.

Logisticians who are responsible for scheduling tours for a large vehicle fleet must keep track of countless factors in order to recognize and assess optimization potential.

Routing & scheduling with TRAMPAS enables simulation and comparison of alternative scheduling scenarios. You define a possible change in the parameters – alternative scheduling quantities, time windows, or delivery cycles, cost structures, or vehicle fleet structures – and TRAMPAS will calculate the alternatives. You will get realistic, reliable results, taking into consideration all further scheduling restrictions.

Simulations in routing & scheduling reveal opportunities to use transport capacities even more efficiently, creating real, competitive advantages for your company.

Another major benefit: For your simulation, you will work in the same system as for your operative business. For example, you can generate a data copy for strategic simulations from day-to-day business by touching a button. And the other way around, you can use strategic business games as a source for future master tour planning in day-to-day business.
