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

However, BESITEC additionally started developing further applications and services, which were eventually also implemented by companies outside the Bertling Group, such as globally leading logistics companies, and which, in some cases, are still in use today. The transport management software BLU, for instance, has been used since its launch in 2011. Bertling uses BLU for reporting, EDI (Electronic Data Exchange), digital invoices, RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) as well as GPS-based tracking systems.


Today BESITEC employs 25 people, concentrates on our three business areas and accompanies our customers from advice to development and implementation to support:

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