The most recent version of HLT’s flagship CMS, Hermes 5 (H5), will be rolled out at Menzies cargo facilities from Q1 next year.
 
“After benchmarking the industry, we selected H5 as our cargo management system because it was clear Hermes offers the most advanced solutions in the market,” said Robert Fordree, EVP Cargo, Menzies Aviation. 
 
“Hermes is in our DNA, we have a shared history and working with them means that we are uniquely positioned to take full advantage of the depth of functionality H5 has to offer. Sustainably growing our cargo business is a key part of our future strategy, and H5 will be integral to our toolset for achieving our growth trajectory.”
 
Menzies Aviation operates cargo handling facilities in nearly 40 airports across six continents, handling over 1.6 million tonnes of cargo in 2018.
 
“Through our partnership with Menzies Aviation, our cargo management solutions will allow them to build upwards from an already strong foundation,” said Yuval Baruch, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Hermes Logistics Technologies.
 
“Hermes 5 represents the future of cargo management solutions, its open architecture allows for full integration into cargo ecosystems, from warehouses to airports.
 
“One of the key benefits of Hermes 5 is its scalability, making it the ideal solution for a network like Menzies’ which includes small, medium, and large sized operations.
 
“The standardisation and open connectivity of the platform means complete compatibility and data-sharing across their logistics facilities and services. 
 
“We are proud to continue our relationship with Menzies Aviation and be recognised as a market leader in providing cargo management solutions.”
 
H5 was launched last year and the CMS continues to be adopted by airports, airlines and ground handlers across the globe, including Hanoi Airport, RSA National, LuxairCARGO and most recently CHS Trade in Slovakia.
