We started as a group of FRIENDS. Some of us knew each other since our youth, others joined later. As different as we were, what we had in common was our many years of EXPERIENCE in LOGISTICS and TRANSPORT. And we made no secret of our own frustrations with far too slow systems and too complex applications in that industry.
Together, we started DREAMING about an ENGINE that could process all the data and different formats at GREAT SPEED, but would still remain very EASY to use. What about a powerful application that a simple user could still configure completely by himself and fully INTUITIVELY?
One day, in 2015, over a beer among friends, we decided: this dream is worth a try! Focusing on the customer dissatisfactions and gaps in the industry’s existing offering, we drafted the first SMART reporting engine for the world of logistics and transportation. The INNOVATIVE Smart(log) application was born.
Since that day, we have continuously improved our system until it became SECOND TO NONE. We have created a solution that SIMPLIFIES the lives of thousands of warehouse employees, salespeople, managers, shop owners, customer service agents and many others.
A smart vision of logistics!
Our 5S Values and how we practice them
With our solutions and services, we created real added value for our customers. But we want more than that. We want to be part of a PURPOSE-DRIVEN company, aiming to display SOCIALLY and ENVIRONMENTALLY responsible behavior. This matters more today than ever before.

Being a smart organization means to create an adaptive learning ecosystem, able to identify
quickly challenges, draw conclusions and make real-time decisions. We like to challenge the status quo in order to develop new approaches and open up fresh perspectives for the logistics and transportation industry. This basically means:
- Create space for experimentation and the testing of new ideas
- Foster a fail-fast innovation culture
- Use of creative methodologies including agile, Kanban, design thinking, a.o.
- Staying open-minded and processing critical experiences into new learning

- Reacting quickly to changed circumstances

In the age of the Internet, protecting our information systems has become just as important as protecting our property, life and limb. Therefore, we must have a robust and well secured digital backbone. However, not only the infrastructure must be secure, but above all the data.
