We digitalize logistics!

As one of the leading software companies for logistics, DAKOSY has been offering digital solutions for international freight forwarding and customs clearance as well as supply chain management for more than 40 years.

In addition, DAKOSY operates the Port Community System (PCS) for the Port of Hamburg and the Cargo Community System (FAIR@Link) for Frankfurt and Hamburg Airports, which are accessible to any company via open and flexible EDI interfaces and web applications. We manage our software packages and platforms in our own high-availability data centers.

Our headquarters are located in Hamburg and we have offices in Bremen (with CargoSoft), Frankfurt and Konstanz.

We provide expert advice and support for all customers. We assist you not only during the decision-making and implementation phase but also through to the operation of our software.

CO2 compensation certificate

After determining our carbon footprint for 2021 for the first time, we also determined it for 2022 and were able to make a further contribution to counteracting climate change by offsetting it. Since June 13, 2023, we have had the CO2 offset certificate for 2022 and are thus climate-neutral in accordance with the global Verified Carbon Standard for CO2 accounting.
