Luxembourg handler chooses Hermes

Freight handler LuxairCargo has selected Hermes’ hub management system. The Luxembourg airport based company, the seventh largest platform in Europe with a throughput of about 800,000 tonnes a year, said it was attracted by the system’s "high level of automation” and ability to interface with existing systems.
Other features include prioritised routing across the hub to outbound flights, inbound breakdown planning based on shipment priority, proactive rather than reactive problem management, special control and monitoring of sensitive cargo and a system to control forklift truck tasks.
“These crucial aspects enable us to deliver integrated air cargo handling services to our customers while ensuring a sustainable business growth" explained LuxairCargo executive vice-president, Laurent Jossart.
Hermes chief operating officer, Simon Elmore, added: "The signing of LuxairCARGO adds another major hub to our customer portfolio and is in line with Hermes’ strategic growth plans.”
