Chile-based ground handling agent, UASL – part of the Ultramar Group – has selected the Hermes 5 cargo management system from Hermes Logistics Technologies for its air cargo handling and documentation.
Based at Santiago’s Comodoro Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport (SCL) UASL is the sister company of local cargo handling warehouses Depocargo (import) and Teisa (export).
Hermes 5 is the new version of Hermes’ Cargo Management System (CMS) and Hub Management System (HMS) applications, and will be implemented at SCL in 2018.
“The H5 implementation at UASL is a full Software as a Service (SaaS) implementation where UASL will benefit from a fast Cloud H5 deployment that could see the system live as early as Q3/18,” said Yuval Baruch, chief executive officer, Hermes Logistics Technologies.
“Once H5 is implemented at SCL, UASL will have its own, fully integrated management tool that will interface with its local community and customers, allowing for smarter process flows, messaging compliance and more control over key areas such as Customs, service management and revenue accounting,” he added.
The Hermes implementation will offer UASL a single system that is configured to its needs and the changing requirements of its growing customer base.
“After evaluating different options available in the market, we found in Hermes Logistics Technologies a world class supplier, with the experience we were looking for in the airfreight industry. We trust that this partnership with Hermes will be long-term,” said Christian Cood, CEO, UASL.
Hermes 5, which is being rolled out globally, is a full SaaS implementation capable of running within any Cloud, modernising the Hermes framework for seamless integration with new technologies.
Hermes commenced the global rollout of H5 earlier this year with the implementation of its CMS at ALS Cargo Terminal Co., Ltd at Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi, Vietnam.
