Hermes Logistics Technologies (HLT) has completed ‘phase 1’ of its digitalisation project with cargo handler dnata Singapore, after a successful implementation of its Hermes NG Ecosystem at Changi Airport.
Phase 1 of the project included the implementation of the latest versions of the Hermes 5 Cargo Management System, the Hermes NG Business Intelligence & Datalakes solution, as well as NG Track&Trace, and seamless integration with technology partner SpeedCargo’s CargoEye solution.
Hermes said these combined systems will manage all processes related to physical cargo handling, including documentation, special product governance, security, mail, messaging, revenue accounting, and business intelligence.
This will allow dnata to build up and break down cargo in real time, perform more efficient mail handling with less data input, and automate repetitive and time-consuming tasks.
Yuval Baruch, chief executive at HLT, said the Hermes NG Ecosystem has already processed more than fifty million kilogrammes of cargo on more than 3,000 flights, 20,000 unit load devices, and 50,000 air waybills at the airport.
Phase 2 of the digitalisation programme will include the addition of other NG products, such as NG Landside Management powered by Nallian, the integration with SpeedCargo’s CargoMind, and the implementation of modern best practices.
Hermes said the further integration with technology partners will form part of the company’s broader strategy to bring the full benefits of collaboration and data sharing to the air cargo industry.
“Going live following a complex project delivered during the Covid pandemic is an unprecedented success and our on-site implementation was the culmination of careful planning and strong collaboration,” said Baruch.
