Menzies Aviation has selected Hermes Logistics Technologies (HLT) to provide a Cargo Management System (CMS) for its global network.

The most recent version of HLT’s CMS, Hermes 5 (H5), will be rolled out at Menzies cargo facilities from the first quarter of next year.

Menzies Aviation operates cargo handling facilities in nearly 40 airports across six continents, handling over 1.6m tonnes of cargo in 2018.

H5 was launched last year and is used by airports, airlines and ground handlers, including Hanoi Airport, RSA National, LuxairCARGO, and most recently CHS Trade in the Slovakia.

“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, executive vice president cargo, Menzies Aviation. 

Yuval Baruch, chief executive, Hermes Logistics Technologies, added: “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.”
