The Platform for all Partners in the supply chain


Logistics Data Cloud – Digital. Networked. Secure.

As a neutral provider Logistics Data Cloud lifts the digitization of the supply chain to a new level. Small companies become an equal partner without much investment. Large and already digitized companies save the care of a variety of direct connections.
All companies benefit from the marketplace and app offerings. By integrating further Internet systems, the Logistics Data Cloud forms a multi-cloud center for the overview of all activities.


One single platform for all partners

The Logistics Data Cloud enables every participant to communicate digitally with their business partners. The connection is made via numerous existing standards with just a few clicks. Regardless of system, format or protocol from Excel to ERP.

Transparency and Alerting

Earlier availability of relevant information and better data quality through the unified data hub:
What is the status of my order? Where are the goods? For which shipments I would like to be particularly alarmed.

Apps and Marketplace

Exciting apps provide added value to get even more out of the logistics data:
Management Dashboards, Compliance, ePouch, Dangerous Goods, IoT, and much more. Available on the mobile phone, tablet or PC.

Consignor and Consignee

Global transparency across all modes of transport. End-to-end and in real time. Always as detailed information as necessary: show everything, only the most important or individual setup. Responsiveness through proactive information.


Become the digital partner of the shipping industry with a single connection to the cloud. Receive information earlier and without double entry. Add your own subcontractors to the network to close information gaps. Meet new customer requirements and offer your own digital services.


Be informed about the orders directly and with a higher degree of detail. Connecting subcontractors for full digitization on the long haul and to the last mile. Presentation of services in the marketplace.


Thanks to early information, cloud connectivity allows better advance planning. Offer digital services in the marketplace.

With just one connection - ready for the digital world.

After registration and activation in the Logistics Data Cloud, the participant receives its digital environment and is ready to go.  Communication partners can be added and linked via mouse click. For companies that are not yet connected, the Logistics Data Cloud team will be active on request to establish the connection. The company can describe itself and its service and is thus perceived even better by new partners.
