Our History

BESITEC, short for Bertling EDI Service & IT GmbH, was founded in Hamburg in 2003. Back then, F.H. Berling Logistics GmbH decided to spin-out their quickly growing IT department and to incorporate it into an independent software engineering firm. In the beginning, BESITEC was mainly focussed on the further development of BABSY, the ‘Bertling Agency Booking System’, which was therefore completely redesigned in 2009.

Entering the market

Over the past years, BESITEC started to develop further applications and services, which were eventually also utilized by companies outside the Bertling Group, such as globally leading logistics and shipping companies, and of which, some are still in use today. The transport management software BLU, for instance, has been used by all global offices of Bertling Logistics since its launch in 2011. Bertling uses BLU for managing its worldwide transports and also for KPI for reporting, EDI (Electronic Data Exchange), digital invoices, RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) as well as GPS-based tracking & tracing systems.


Today BESITEC employs 25 IT specialists, who concentrate on Besitec’s three business areas and accompany all customers from advice to development and implementation by offering:

  • Electronic data exchange via EDI interface
  • Electronic Invoicing
  • Development of comprehensive IT landscapes
