The company Nordic IT was founded in 2002 by Heiko F. Höfer, a trained merchant who, after several years in London and New York in the ship owning and shipbroking business at Schulte & Bruns, Emden, returned to Germany to start on his own.

IT was his hobby early on. Mr Höfer ran freight calculations on a Sharp PC 1401 back in the early '80s. Since then, this curiosity for new solutions and improvements in operations has been a key driver for him and the company. In the last decade, the company has been delivering complete communication packages that include software, networks, and integration of third-party products to shipping companies worldwide. As the team has grown, a reputation for trustworthiness and customised solutions according to customer's needs has been built.

In 2020, the company became Dualog Nordic. Dualog develops Software-as-a-Service and On-Premise solutions tailor-made for the shipping industry. Today, more than 4500 ships use the company's digital products for email, data transportation, Internet management and cybersecurity.
