Hermes rolls out new CMS software at Luxembourg airport
08 / 01 / 2019
The first phase of the implementation of Hermes 5 (H5) Cargo Management System (CMS) has been completed at Luxembourg Airport.
The H5 system was customised for ground handler Luxair Cargo, which processes a total of 1m tonnes of airfreight per year.
Luxembourg Airport’s central location in Europe means that it plays a vital role in trucking routes across the continent, and the custom version of H5 implemented at the hub provides "advanced trucking functionality".
The upgraded version of H5 also includes features such as a new Customs interface, designed to help speed up cross-border Customs clearance, as well as real-time tracking functionality and data analysis, to help reduce delays and backlogs.
The new version of H5, which will be fully implemented by mid-2019, also consolidates Customs documents for one inbound shipment, increasing administrative and cargo processing efficiency.
“For one inbound flight to Luxembourg Airport, there can be as many as 20 different trucks which transport its payload onto the next leg of its journey,” said Laurent Jossart, executive vice-president, Luxair Cargo.
“This tailored version of H5 will help Luxair Cargo to handle 1m tonnes of airfreight cargo a year and save significantly on time and costs.”
Hermes commenced the global roll-out of H5 earlier in 2018 with implementation at ALS Cargo Terminal Co, Ltd at Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi (HAN), Vietnam followed by UASL (Ultramar Group) at Comodoro Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport (SCL) in Santiago, Chile, GMR Group at Hyderabad International airport (HYD) in Hyderabad, India, and most recently with RSA National at Dubai Air Cargo Terminal (DXB), Dubai.
