DDS Logistics's Timeline

» Company » Our history

Data Dynamic Systems (DDS) was founded in 1984 by Serge Lacrampe, at the time when the concept of supply chain management was emerging, the market on which the company operates.

In 2000, the company was acquired by former CIO of the Daher Group, Jérôme Bour, who became the new Chairman and CEO.

On the strength of its renowned business know-how and exceptional product positioning, the decision was made to reformulate the complete offer on the basis on new technology. The goal: to develop solutions that are even easier to implement.

A new organization was set up to achieve this objective. DDS became DDS Logistics and recruited new sales and marketing talents to complete the company’s strong business expertise.

In 2002, the company took a major step forward. The situation of DDS Logistics positioned the company as a start-up. Its technologically advanced offer, its positioning on an emerging market, and its growth in excess of 100% convinced venture capital companies Dassault Développement and Odysée Venture to each invest €2 million in the company’s capital.

In 2006, DDS Logistics acquired Forum Trafic, which developed management solutions for logistical processes, thereby consolidating its position as a leader in TMS solutions.

In 2008, DDS Logistics opened a subsidiary in Hong Kong, China to service its Asian customers.

In 2009, DDS Logistics bought Narval Logistic Software, which specialized in software for international transport.

In 2013, DDS Logistics stepped up its TMS activity in e-commerce by acquiring the KeKoli.com shipment tracking solution and consumer opinion platform Colisconfiance.com.

In 2016, DDS Logistics created its own innovation lab, called the “Logistics Incubator”. The purpose of this laboratory is to work on innovative solutions for the digitizing of transport chains and sourcing.

In 2017, the first project developed by the DDS Logistics incubator laboratory was launched: the Join2ship collaborative transport platform. This collaborative solution plans, controls and tracks the shipment and reception of goods in real time.
