Our History.


Under the ELITE endowment, an initiative of the RWTH Aachen University (Prof. Sebastian) and Deutsche Post (German Post), a planning system was developed for the pick-up and linehaul of the mail transport within Germany, which exists even today.


Through the collaboration of Prof. Sebastian, Dr. Tore Grünert and Michael Thärigen at the RWTH Aachen University, the company gts systems and consulting gmbh was founded in 1999.


Through our focus on Oracle databases for the planning systems developed by us and the related know-how, we became an Oracle partner from very early on.


The comprehensive know-how that we had gathered while developing customer-specific planning software and in our consulting projects in logistics was the perfect foundation for our very first, in-house development: the route planning software TransIT.


The prefab house manufacturer, SchwörerHaus KG, was the first customer to deploy TransIT to dispatch its service staff using the software.


The first TransIT customer outside Germany was the Austrian company, Kaindl, which plans Europe-wide distribution of wood products using our software.


A 20-member team is deployed to support over 100 customers in more than 10 countries.
