UK-based Hermes Logistics Technologies (HLT) which was founded in 2002 and develops and installs cargo management systems for airport cargo handlers as well as airlines, is further on the road to expansion. This has been evidenced by the beefing up of their UK and Indian teams recently announced by the management.
The Cargo Management System (CMS) developed by the UK operator is designed in order to give its users a far better control over import and export processes in their warehouses and the steering of internal ETV systems they may have in operation.
The H5 System gets more sophisticated
The Hermes core product, the Cargo Management System (CMS) Hermes 5 (H5) is continually being updated with new software applications aimed at giving customers newer and better possibilities of meeting future handling demands.
Du to their fast-growing business, they have recently decided that they must expand their specialised management staffing of the Development, Cargo and Quality Assurance teams in both India and the UK.
Atul Kumbhare has joined the team in Hermes main Indian office in Pune, where he will lead the development team and work alongside Sachin Gokhale who Hermes India’s Manager and Head of Quality control is.
In the UK, Nishant Singh and Steve Palmer join in order to work on the Hermes NG system which is a modular pay-as-you-go management system which began development last year and will go on trial very soon. Hermes claims that once online, H5 will give clients a far better systems functionality.
Hermes CEO, Yuval Baruch is intent on creating new systems in the future and stated that: “We are growing our teams in India and the UK to allow us to continue the development of new applications as part of our Hermes NG suite, which will complement H5’s software as a service (SaaS) Cloud offering.”
A long list of contented clients
The company which started up on a small scale almost two decades ago, has in the meantime established itself as one of the leading suppliers of air cargo management systems which are individually tailored to each user’s own specific needs. The list of clients now on Hermes books is quite extensive and ranges from air cargo handling entities to airlines.
Hermes now has over 70 stations across the globe which help create new technologies, applications and the creation of business analysis’s for handlers and airlines alike.
Th CMS developer is proud of the fact that they don’t just work for the ‘big guys’ in the industry, but also give smaller cargo handlers just as much priority in developing and maintaining their systems as they do for large companies.
