H5 CMS to Support LuxairCARGO’s One Million Tonnes of Airfreight Cargo
Phase one of the newly upgraded Hermes 5 (H5) Cargo Management System (CMS), following the anticipated mid-2019 completion of the the updated version specifically customized for LuxairCARGO at Luxembourg Airport, has been completed. The upgrade will support one of the world’s largest ground handlers while improving operational efficiencies through the platform’s streamlined management application.
“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, LuxairCARGO. “This tailored version of H5 will help LuxairCARGO to handle one million tonnes of airfreight cargo a year and save significantly on time and costs.”
Features of the CMS provide Customs document consolidation as well as increased processing efficiencies for administrative and cargo operations. Additionally, real-time tracking, data analysis, and a new Customs interface will support efforts towards streamlining operations and reducing delays.
“Hermes 5 not only provides the level of automation we require, but also guarantees the possibility to interface with all our other existing operational systems. Hermes has also allowed us to enhance our quality and has contributed to a standardization of our processes,” said Jossart. “During the implementation, the Hermes Logistics Technologies (HLT) team of cargo and technical experts provided on-site support to LuxairCARGO, which meant the system went live successfully and in very good timing.”
