Hermes digitalises cargo at Bratislava Airport


Hermes Logistics Technologies has helped CHS Trade to digitalise its cargo processes at Bratislava Airport with its Hermes 5 Cloud Cargo Management System.

The ground handler is using H5 to digitise its air waybills and digitalise planning and data sharing processes with partners.

Ctirad Emody, chief executive officer of CHS Trade says customers have been asking the company to us an advanced cargo management system to handle complex tasks.

He says: “We switched to Hermes 5 because the system can handle both context-based data and event reporting, and the Hermes team are very open-minded and flexible to the customisation needs we have as a small operation.”

H5 is a Software as a Service (Saas), and is hosted via Amazon Web Services, accessed online through a virtual private network, removing the need for on-site infrastructure expenditure.

Jacek Lechocki, head of products and services at Hermes says: “CHS Trade’s version of H5 was customised to enable the digitalisation of their current process. We improved the data input process and enabled printing of House Air Waybills for sharing with agents, bridging the gap between digital and paper.”

Implementation was completed in under six months with the Hermes team working weekends to fit CHS Trade staff schedules.
