Hermes 5 to roll out across Menzies Aviation's global network

Hermes Logistics Technologies is spearheading cargo management innovation with their latest cargo management system (CMS) Hermes 5(H5).

Their partners have been upgrading to this industry-leading system across the world, and Menzies Aviation has opted to move their entire network to H5, to take advantage of its advanced connectivity, cloud functionality, and its event-based approach to data.

After benchmarking the industry, we selected H5 as our cargo management system because it was clear Hermes offers the most advanced solutions in the market,” said Robert Fordree, EVP Cargo, Menzies Aviation.

Hermes is in our DNA, we have a shared history and working with them means that we are uniquely positioned to take full advantage of the depth of functionality H5 has to offer.

Sustainably growing our cargo business is a key part of our future strategy, and H5 will be integral to our toolset for achieving our growth trajectory.”

Event-based data is all about seeing data as part of a larger context, which creates meaningful and shareable information that can be controlled both to protect intellectual property but also to improve performance across the supply chain.

Alex Labonne, Hermes’ Chief Technology Officer spoke at this year’s Air Cargo Handling Logistics (ACHL) conference about how event-based data is good for businesses and the whole industry, like a crystal ball

Through our partnership with Menzies Aviation, our cargo management solutions will allow them to build upwards from an already strong foundation,” said Yuval Baruch, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Hermes Logistics Technologies.

Hermes 5 represents the future of cargo management solutions, its open architecture allows for full integration into cargo ecosystems, from warehouses to airports.

One of the key benefits of Hermes 5 is its scalability, making it the ideal solution for a network like Menzies’ which includes small, medium, and large sized operations.

The standardisation and open connectivity of the platform means complete compatibility and data-sharing across their logistics facilities and services.

We are proud to continue our relationship with Menzies Aviation and be recognised as a market leader in providing cargo management solutions.”
