The container depot software

Full and empty container depot as well as temporary storage. As a stand-alone solution or integrated into the industry software cs CONNECT, our depot management software covers all areas of a container depot.

From gate management, inventory management, container repairs and automated billing to the management and planning of all resources as well as interfaces and connections of mobile solutions.

Through the integration in cs CONNECT, intermodal orders and the processing of a container depot can be seamlessly mapped and processed in one software.

This means that all parties involved can access all data in real time at every stage of order processing. Multiple entries are eliminated and errors are avoided.

Main advantages

Driving digitization forward

Besides the depot, many other parties are involved in an intermodal container transport. Many processes can be digitally mapped in one software solution through integration in cs CONNECT. This brings real added value.

Improving customer relations

Customers can follow all information in real time. The focus is on order processing on water, on rail, on road and in the depot. This brings transparency and an information advantage all along the line.

Esther Savelsberg, project manager at cargo support, in an interview about our depot solution.
Automation and digitalisation are the keywords. Paperless working is the order of the day. Directly from the TMS into the depot software, including an app for checkers and forklift drivers. That's how Depot works.

Technical information

Informationen für den Einsatz der
Softwarefamilie cs CONNECT



cs CONNECT runs on Microsoft Windows terminals that support .NET 4.8 or higher. These can be run in the local network as a PC or virtualised as a terminal server. Operation in the cloud and access via RDP or Citrix are also possible.


cs CONNECT can be used on one or more application servers running in a cluster, depending on the requirements. The AppServers run under Microsoft Windows and .NET 4.8 or higher as a service. In addition, REDIS as KeyValueStore and RabbitMQ as message-broker are installed on the servers. The application servers can be operated on local hardware, in VMs or in the cloud.


MySQL serves as the database. MySQL belongs to Oracle and is a powerful and cost-effective database. It can be operated on local hardware, in the cloud or as an Azure service (or AWS etc.). For site networking, clustering and security, MySQL offers real-time replication of data across many servers.
