Hermes Logistics Technologies (HLT) will be migrating dnata Amsterdam to its latest cloud-based cargo management system.
HLT states that Hermes 5 Software as a Service (SaaS) will enable greater control, increased operational efficiency, and improved oversight at the ground handler’s two terminals at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS).
Having processed more than 650,000 tonnes of cargo last year, AMS is one of dnata’s largest stations.
The migration, which brings the existing functionality of HLT’s latest cargo management system into a cloud-based, fully managed service, is the first milestone in a larger implementation project between dnata and HLT.
Yuval Baruch, chief executive of HLT, said: “Our latest software, Hermes 5 SaaS, is our most function-rich cargo management system to date, helping to streamline workflows, provide greater transparency, and improve data sharing across dnata’s operations in Amsterdam.
“This migration further strengthens HLT’s presence and expertise within Europe as we continue to push for digitalisation across the global air cargo industry.”
HLT states that Hermes 5 SaaS will streamline the management of dnata’s cargo import, export, and transit processes from end to end, with the additional benefit of allowing HLT to provide a fully managed and supported service through the migration to a cloud solution.
This will enable dnata Amsterdam to focus on their core business of processing cargo, whilst HLT takes care of managing and maintaining dnata’s servers and applications, saving both time and money and allowing dnata to elevate their levels of customer service.
Key benefits include enhanced security, improved messaging capabilities to match the fast-paced requirements of the aviation industry, and access to HLT’s full Ecosystem, a collection of applications including business intelligence and data lakes, track and trace, and landside management.
The AMS upgrade represents the continuation of a series of successful migrations to Hermes 5 SaaS across Europe, with dnata NV, the dnata terminal at Brussels Airport (BRU), to follow in 2024.
