Pactl upgrades handling system

SHANGHAI’S ground handling agent Pudong International Airport Cargo Terminal Ltd (PACTL) has implemented an upgrade to its HERMES air cargo management system.
Benefits include new features such as a more reliable dangerous goods function, a ULD stock-check process, a flight planning capability and the facility to produce integrated cargo damage reports.
PACTL operates out of three terminals at Shanghai Pudong International Airport, the third largest cargo hub in the world.
The upgrade was very much a joint effort that combined the expertise and experience of both organisations and resulted in a smooth and methodical transition to this latest version, says Lutz Grzegorz, PACTL’s vice-president.
"We have been very happy with the way this project has progressed. Hermes air cargo experts and members of their technical team spent two weeks with us in China carrying out data migration and system training to ensure the switch-over went smoothly,” he adds.
Hermes’ chief operating officer, Yuval Baruch, says Hermes and PACTL have much in common. “Both companies are committed to offering our customers innovative solutions, outstanding quality and the benefits of the latest available technology.
The upgrade will give PACTL access to more data to help run their operations on a daily basis as well as enabling them to analyse their business in more detail as they look to the future," he adds.
