DAKSOY deploys authentication app for logistics at Port of Hamburg

DAKOSY, a Hamburg-based software provider, has created ImpalaID, a new universal identification tool for logistics at the Port of Hamburg.

The technology is open to all businesses and institutions and provides users with barrier-free and secure legitimisation through a secure QR code.

The trial phase is presently underway in the Port of Hamburg. The first participants are Hamburger Container Service (HCS), an empty container depot, and the Veterinary Office Border Control.

Nicolai Port, Head of the Intermodal Transport Solutions Department at DAKOSY, said: “The new ImpalaID app fills a significant gap for secure and uniform authentication at an assortment of logistic hubs, for example at barriers or gate systems in the port area.”

Trucking firms will be able to register with numerous parties in the future, such as terminals, deportation, or slot booking processes, all through a single app.

ImpalaID, in terms of technology, is a central Identity Provider System (IDP-System) for logistics.

This implies that users (for example, truckers) can keep a central ID in the IDP system, which they can subsequently use to register and identify themselves with a variety of IDP services (terminals, applications, online platforms).

The initial registration takes place digitally. Varying levels of authentication depending on necessary requirements can be stored (i.e. type and number of ID documents to be checked) and will be periodically reviewed and verified.

After successful legitimisation, the user receives a secured QR code in the ImpalaID app with which they can transmit their user information to respective applications.

Port clarified: “A major focus of the software programming was data security. This is achieved through a secure authentication process, which also requires periodic renewals of the verification of identity.

“Additionally, the app is further verified by the registered mobile device (including biometric security, if applicable). This prevents the passing on of data to third parties.”

It was recently reported that the Port of Hamburg handled a total of 8.3 million TEU in 2022, representing a 5.1 per cent reduction from its container throughput in 2021.
