GMR Group selects Hermes for Hyderabad International Airport

Hermes Logistics Technologies (HLT) has welcomed GMR Group to their client portfolio to implement Cargo Management Systems at Hyderabad International Airport (HYD) in India.

HLT has signed a five-year contract with GMR Group’s subsidiary GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (GHIAL), including an upgrade schedule to ensure Hyderabad Airport’s cargo terminal will continue to operate with the most sophisticated Cargo Management Systems available.

“GMR team’s requested timeline from contract signature to production was an extremely ambitious 60 days,” said HLT chief executive officer (CEO), Yuval Baruch.

“I am proud to say that HLT rose to the challenge and we managed to go live just 58 days after signing the contract.

“It was a pleasure to work with GMR who are highly professional and committed their best people to work with us on this project, which was extremely helpful and enabled us to meet the implementation deadline.

“Welcoming GMR to our portfolio of international clients is another example of how HLT continues to expand globally, and we look forward to working with them further.”

GHIAL-owned and operated Hyderabad International Airport (HYD) is the sixth largest international airport in India.

“We selected Hermes Logistics Technologies for our Cargo Management Systems at Hyderabad International Airport because we need state-of-the-art, reliable software to ensure the smooth handling of cargo,” said GHIAL CEO, SGK Kishore.

“Hermes was selected amongst others as they were found to be capable of meeting our needs and delivering our ambitious upgrade plans, as we seek to continuously offer the highest level of service for our customers.”

GHIAL is part of the New Delhi-headquartered GMR Group which specialises in the infrastructure sector with projects across India and around the world, including airports, energy, transportation, and urban infrastructure.

GMR today is one of the top five private airport operators globally, with a presence in India, South East Asia, and Europe.
