No One Knows Simulation Like Neovia

Neovia Logistics drew on more than 50 years of supply-chain simulation experience and our origins as Caterpillar Logistics to create the Simulator. SAP Service Parts Planning itself is the result of a joint venture between Caterpillar Logistics, Ford Motor Company and SAP to create a state-of-the-art service parts planning and management solution. From theoretical modeling in the 1960s, to multi-echelon network transactional simulation in the 1990s, and inventory planning simulation today, Neovia has been at the forefront of this technology from the very beginning.
