About PKA Systems Ltd

Welcome to PKA Systems Ltd. If your business involves logistics and you aim to install or improve a computer system, then we can probably help you.

As a provider of complete solutions to the freight forwarding industry for over 25 years, we have developed Linux, Unix and Windows based systems servicing from 1 to over 200 users, running packages designed to manage every stage of the logistics process.

PKA began life in 1982 as one of two companies to emerge from the collapse of Probe Data Systems. Probe was the first independent software house to specialise in the freight forwarding sector; despite operating in such a competitively favourable environment, Probe was unable to endure. Percy Kay and two other former Probe employees responded to requests from anxious customers left unsupported by the collapse by forming Percy Kay Associates.

Following the retirement of Percy Kay, the company was renamed PKA Systems in 2002, but the tradition of innovation continues. Our PAKWiz project was completed in 2004 in cooperation with the Computer Science department of a Romanian university; in 2008 we collaborated with Daffodil Software to produce a highly specialised web tracking solution; and in 2010 we launched a program to create a forwarding system for the BYOD era – before the term had even been coined!


In response to the proliferation of netbooks, tablets and other portable devices, PKA Systems embarked on the development of a complex, GUI based system designed for these next-generation products while retaining compatibility with the data and business logic accrued accrued over the years in our systems. Our ambitious objective is to take PKA’s freight forwarding software to a new level within the industry, bringing a fresh, new, modern look and feel and rich new functionality, forged in the heat of leading edge technologies and our own extensive, original research with the intention of securing and extending our competitive position in the market.
