Setlog, your experienced and innovative partner at your side
In the age of globalization, it is important for us to create a collaborative relationship in B2B and to promote the respective circumstances of all participants in the end-to-end supply chain. At Setlog, our core competency is to deliver customized software that meets the customer’s needs. We are the only provider to combine supply chain management with corporate social responsibility, offering you a complete solution for your value chain. The personal contact and complete support of our customers is important to us and the basis for our daily work. With Setlog you have an experienced and innovative partner at your side.
Setlog was founded more than 20 years ago by Guido Brackelsberg, Ralf Duester and Jakob Gielen. Our founders recognized then how important the digitalization of supply chain management is and have driven it forward over the last 20 years with a deep expertise in logistics, trade and finance. Since 2001, Setlog is a secure partner in supply chain management and is now considered a reliable and innovative resource by many well-known companies.
Founded by Guido Brackelsberg, Ralf Duester and Jakob Gielen in Cologne. However, Setlog left the cathedral city very quickly and moved to the Ruhr area.
In order to respond even better to customer needs, Setlog’s IT department developed the new software cOSCA and went into “recurring revenue” with it. While the old software with PHP still ran web-based, cOSCA was now available as a server-client solution which has proven to be significantly more efficient .
After numerous business trips to the USA more and more exciting opportunities for Setlog emerged which were seized with the founding of the subsidiary in 2011. Setlog Corp, founded in New York City, has since served as a focal point for successful business relationships in the American market.
In 2013, the OSCA software also adopted a new approach. After cOSCA, the Java-based software jOSCA was launched – with a new look, better performance and more options to respond to customer requests.
In early summer of 2017, the shareholders of Setlog GmbH contributed their shares to the newly founded Setlog Holding AG thus establishing a new organization behind Setlog. As a 100% subsidiary, Setlog GmbH will now be supported by a well-known supervisory board.
OSCA habs been restructured. With the new segmentation of the software into OSCA CSR, OSCA SRM, OSCA Procurement, OSCA Logistics and OSCA QC, OSCA becomes even more flexible, easier to implement and offers new possibilities to be tailored exactly to the needs of the customers.
The Setlog Group is as diverse as the software solutions we offer.
In addition to Setlog GmbH, founded in 2001, we ventured into the USA in 2011 with our 100% subsidiary Setlog Corp. to conquer the supply chain market there. In 2017, our founders also decided to launch Setlog Holding AG, which will henceforth survive as the parent company of the Setlog Group. There, we are supported by a top-class supervisory board from management, law, finance and science. Learn more about the Setlog Group and get to know the people behind it.
Supply Chain Management
Supply chain management is our passion. For us, it is important that the control of complex processes is presented in a simple way. Our goal is to achieve a reduction in delivery times and transport costs through mapped transparency and optimized planning for the customer, e.g. through consolidation.
Setlog stands for the digitalization of the supply chain, especially for international procurement, it is essential to have all data consolidated and available in real time. From our point of view, transparency in all processes and in communication must be ensured at all times.
With true visibility and a software solution that optimizes processes and maps all necessary information, Setlog has made it its mission to sustainably improve production and working conditions. The introduction of the Supply Chain Act in particular has shown us that the sustainable path is paramount.
Supply chain visibility is a key driver to a company’s success, yet remains a top challenge.
Survival lessons for logistics and supply chain professionals during a crisis
You produce goods outside the EU? Then you should take a look at the Supply Chain Act.
Digitalization and supply chain drives us, which is why Setlog is represented as an expert at numerous conferences. In addition, we also regularly host events focusing on logistics and digitalization.
Personal workshops and trainings with our customers, their suppliers and service providers are as much part of Setlog’s service profile as personal support.
It is important for us to constantly develop our software and we use the latest technologies to meet all the needs of our customers.
