DACHSER enhances IT security

The certification covers the company’s eLogistics tools and four internal management programs: DOMINO and OTHELLO (management software for overland transport services as well as air and sea freight, respectively), MIKADO (warehouse management) and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). DACHSER develops, circulates and updates these programs each week for the branch offices and country organizations.

“Our core systems are highly integrated, can be flexibly adapted and reflect the most advanced technology,” said Christian von Rützen, Team Leader of IT-Security at DACHSER. “These programs and the ISO 27001 certification are a unique selling point in the logistics industry. They demonstrate DACHSER’s commitment to efficiency, quality and professionalism in operating, security and software development processes."

DACHSER’s focus on technology corresponds to the increased focus on electronic data exchanges globally over the past several years. Today, 80 percent of all orders at DACHSER are electronically processed, 13,000 customers have linked their systems to the DACHSER EDI Center, and more than 16,000 use the eLogistics tools.

“Our customers know that their own global supply chains depend on the constant availability of their logistics supplier's systems,” von Rützen said. “They insist on dependable and advanced security infrastructure in tenders and audits, putting DACHSER is in a great position with the complete ISO 27001 certification of our central IT system.”

DACHSER first had its corporate IT certified according to ISO 27001 in December 2011, making it one of the first logistics providers to obtain the certification. Many parts of information security are examined in the certification process, including protection from cyber-attacks, security of Internet applications, IT risk management, fail-safe performance, emergency planning, and confidentiality regulations. Annual audits, advancements and improvements based on preceding audits are also integrated into the IT evaluation.
