This is what our customers say

Our software is used by small and large container logistics companies, but also by customers who cover other logistics areas besides the container business, such as groupage. A hybrid model is ideal here. In this way, each department can draw on the full range and has special functions for the industry to be served at hand.

For us, cargo support is not a supplier but a strategic partner.

Best of breed or "all from one source"?

General cargo, loading traffic, sea freight and preferably also a module for air freight. When forwarders decide on a new transport management system, the solution should be able to cover all sectors if possible. The requirement is quite understandable, but the hard and fast line can usually only be maintained with compromises in the functionalities. This is especially true when logistics service providers want to penetrate new business areas.

Best-of-breed, on the other hand, in the area of IT systems means using the most suitable software solution for each business purpose. Accordingly, best-of-breed strategists focus on modularity and combine solutions from different providers. These special solutions - for container logistics or combined transport, for example - are combined to create an integrated system landscape. It is simply a matter of interfacing with the industry-specific range of functions.

Integration via interface

Seamless integration of our
specific solution for container logistics
into your existing TMS.


High customer and
and employee satisfaction due to
specific range of functions.

Best Practice

There are many transport companies
that follow the best-of-breed strategy.
The advantages speak for themselves.


Automated slot booking in the
Port of Hamburg and Bremerhaven

At the three container terminals of Hamburger Hafen und Lagerhaus AG (HHLA) and the terminals of Eurogate, Eurokombi and C. Steinweg (Süd-West Terminal), slot booking has been integrated for about five years. Container Service (HCS), Container Maintenance Repair Hamburg (CMR) and CCIS Germany GmbH (Progeco) as well as the veterinary and customs offices are also connected to the system. At Eurogate Terminal Bremerhaven, the mandatory use of pre-announcement and slot booking will start on 1 May 2023.
Our automatic slot booking system automatically reserves and books available slots and displays the current status of all containers in real time on an interactive schedule.
These are your benefits:

  • Fully automated or optional manual booking
  • Automated grouping of intermodal containers at the terminal
  • Booking overview of all booked slots
  • Integrated slot utilisation display per terminal and gate
  • Integrated container status display (e.g. 550 regulatory requirement not met)

Train planning in cs PLAN

We are thus addressing all transport service providers who are active in combined transport and handle their main runs completely or partially by rail.
The cs PLAN scheduling module allows you to create your own train schedules, which can be extended to include future periods using a convenient copy function. It makes no difference to the integrated train planning whether own locomotives are dispatched or the capacities of railway undertakings are used.
In cs PLAN, the employee has access to the tabular train timetable in which all information is available in compressed form. Detailed data on containers or train numbers can be called up with a click in submenus.

Together with the pre- and on-carriage planned by truck, complete multimodal transports can be mapped and monitored.

The e-waybill based on blockchain technology

The digital proof of delivery (eCMR) ensures a fast return of the data at the end of the transport chain - and makes the entire process significantly more transparent and economical. We have reliably solved the high security requirements for the transport of goods that are often worth millions. Together with leading logistics companies, we have defined an end-to-end secure process around the digital consignment note (eCMR) - based on blockchain technology.
