DACHSER IT in detail
Global, IT-based logistics processes only work if all partners speak the same language. To ensure a smooth, time-efficient and reliable flow of information between the participants, even with complex projects, we operate our own EDI Center as a central communications platform for electronic data exchange. EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) is our system interpreter – it converts and transmits incoming and outgoing data to and from all connected systems. Standardized and customer-specific interfaces allow a fast and uncomplicated integration of all business processes as well as the exchange of all relevant information and data.
Advantages for you:
- Process security: With standardized and customized interfaces you can integrate your business processes optimally.
- Error prevention and time saving: Standardized and automated work stages manage your logistics processes precisely.
- Data security and availability: Via the central communications platform, you are directly connected to our transport management and warehouse management systems.
The API platform offers a simplified connection of your business to our services with API. You can get the benefit of the power of the DACHSER IT system in real time. Visit our API Portal and discover our API services.
Data security is of the highest priority at DACHSER. We were one of the first logistics service providers to have our IT certified in accordance with ISO 27001. As part of our centralized data management, we host all customer data in our data centers instead of renting server capacity from third parties. Having our own computer sovereignty offers several advantages: We operate under German law and have clear rules. Biometric access at our server locations guarantee maximum security. With our own parallel data centers, we can offer you the highest availability and reliability around the clock.
Our specialists from the IT Security Team ensure maximum security in data management. The globally uniform IT structures and the standardization of IT processes at a central and decentralized level are essential precautions to protect all data in the system – including yours.
