India’s Hyderabad International Airport (HYD), part of the GMR Group, has signed with Hermes Logistics Technologies (HLT) to implement new Cargo Management Systems at its terminals.
HLT and GMR Group’s subsidiary GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (GHIAL), have signed a five-year contract for the new Cargo Management Systems which includes an upgrade schedule to ensure Hyderabad Airport’s cargo terminal will continue to operate with the most sophisticated IT systems available.
“GMR team’s requested timeline from contract signature to production was an extremely ambitious 60 days,” says Yuval Baruch, chief executive officer (CEO), Hermes Logistics Technologies. “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,” Baruch adds.
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,” says SGK Kishore, chief executive officer, GHIAL.
“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,” Kishore adds.
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, Southeast Asia, and Europe.
