Hi there!

Find out more about who we are and how our story began.

Our story

A story that was waiting to be written

When we worked at Fraunhofer IML in Dortmund, we were a colorful group of four completely different personalities with more than 30 years of experience in everything related to logistics, load carriers and software. During our time together at IML, we got the idea that we could turn the whole thing with load carrier management on its head — not just make it a bit better, but really revolutionize it. Existing solutions were simply too complicated for us and many new technologies such as RFID, IoT or AI could not be used at all. We never let go of this idea until we launched the Logistikbude at the end of 2021. Since then, we have been developing software that not only impresses in terms of simplicity, but also really helps people out there in the logistics jungle.

That's who we are

I couldn't have wished for a better team for my first real job as a developer: Understanding, humour and skill combined with lots of lovely people who all get on well together make sure that I simply love working here. As a board game lover, I'm also an absolute fan of the regular game nights.
