Wanko 50 years

Dear customers, dear employees, dear friends and interested parties,

2022 is a very special year for us at Wanko. Exactly 50 years ago our company was founded, at that time still under the name "Heinrich Wanko Unternehmungsplanung KG". Even before the invention of the PC, we were already in operation, planning tours on the drawing board, organizing movement of goods in the warehouse with index cards and advising our customers on the organization of their logistics processes.

Today, after 50 years, we offer our customers an end-to-end software suite for planning, controlling and monitoring the complete supply chain. Our mission still is the sustainable optimization of logistics processes. Whether for large corporations or medium-sized companies, for food retailers, furniture manufacturers, steel traders, or gas producers, with our cross-generational expertise we know the challenges of our customers and are able to not only deliver a suitable software, but also help to successfully implement, operate it for years, and keep it continuously up-to-date.
This is done by a team of almost 100 young and experienced employees who implement proven processes and new ideas in successful digitization projects.
Overall, 1000 summed up years of professional experience and 3 million lines of code help 30,000 drivers and warehouse workers in 37 countries perform their work in an optimized and resource-efficient way.
However, we are not resting on our laurels. We are already working on new processes and applications that will help our customers maintain and expand their market position in the future.
We are individualists deluxe, we approach problems differently than the mainstream, and we discuss, experiment, but always remain professional and reliable.
50 years in the logistics industry show us: We at Wanko are like a rock in the surf. Or to refer to our Bavarian origins:
We are the Watzmann of the logistics industry.

We would like to thank our long-standing partners and customers for their trust and look forward to many more years of productive cooperation.
