Project a logistics network, plan transport routes, calculate emissions and toll costs, or work out appropriate freight rates – all of these tasks can be handled by one product: XCargo.

XCargo fits into your Microsoft Excel® application and gives you functions that optimize your logistics. It enables you to quickly and efficiently calculate transport costs, plan route schedules, and optimize locations of lesser to mid-range complexity. To top it off, XCargo’s comprehensive collection of templates facilitates the daily work of logistics service providers and forwarders.


Logistics planners

Logistics planners need to know what’s going on in their logistics network, from the current degree of service to targeted costs and real costs, to expected performance demands. XCargo is an ideal tool for keeping everything in view. As an Excel-based software solution, it simulates changes and how these affect the entire system. It enables you to see real figures and scenarios in a model of your whole system and then use these as well-founded and transparent foundations for decision-making.

Freight Buyers

Successful calls for bids begin with proper preparation: You can get twice the benefits by wording your calls efficiently and then evaluating the bids comprehensively. The bids you get will be of a better quality and greater reliability and your transport costs will be lower. Throughout the entire process, XCargo gives you a standardized tool for planning and evaluating offers. It lets you apply different freight rates to one and the same shipment and then choose the most cost-efficient service provider.  This also benefits your procurement manager: If you need a service provider for specific shipments, your price inquiries will get fast and reliable replies.


Mit It’s not enough to plan and then select a logistics service provider and get your goods transported – you still have to audit. Controllers will find that XCargo offers many supportive functions for easily evaluating invoices.

Network Designers

XCargo helps you plan your transport network: Whether you need to plan hubs, logistics relations, or regions of supply and distribution, you can have a strategic advantage. This planning tool offers a wide range of options from the analysis of your present network to visualizing potential scenarios. How do transport channels change? How can you save time and money? Let XCargo show you. Use route planning, too, to optimize processes and use your resources in the most profitable way.

Tender Manager

Calls for bids are often very complex. Besides the shipping data, they often also stipulate very specific freight rates, and this can make working out an offer a real challenge. XCargo helps you validate and analyze shipping data and review the costs. Set up margin models and work with margin structures. Writing up your offers can be enhanced by the automatic creation of tailored freight matrixes that contain integrated freight rate optimization.


Know your costs! Use XCargo’s cost calculator to analyze your shipments and see them shown graphically on maps. Controllers can use XCargo to easily compare forwarders’ offers with real shipments and shipping patterns that result from the bidding process with real shipping structures.
