SmartKargo has appointed Simon Elmore as vice president of cargo solutions.

Elmore will be responsible for assessing and bringing continued innovation to SmartKargo solutions and business processes.

He brings 25 years of experience in air cargo and 20 years in air cargo software to SmartKargo, having participated in and coordinated projects in over 30 countries. He also brings extensive experience in software deployments and was a member of the original team which designed and built the Hermes Cargo Management system, a joint venture with Menzies Aviation.

While at Hermes Logistics Technologies, Elmore’s early background included expertise in air cargo revenue accounting. It later encompassed traditional business analysis, product management, and programme management roles with titles ranging from product specialist through chief operating officer.

“I am incredibly excited to join the SmartKargo team after admiring the company from afar for a while,” Elmore said. “As vice president cargo Solutions, I will hit the ground running, liaising with the busy product and project teams, to provide continued innovations and solutions for the growing SmartKargo customer base within the air cargo supply chain.”

Milind Tavshikar, chief executive of SmartKargo, said: “We are extremely pleased to add Simon to our team at this important time in our business growth. We look forward to continuing our mission of providing essential solutions that allow our customers to prosper.”

SmartKargo is a cloud-based solution that facilitates the efficient digital transformation of an airline’s cargo business and opens new revenue streams through e-commerce package shipping and delivery.
