Hermes Logistics Technologies (HLT) has expanded its teams in India and the UK as its cargo management system, Hermes 5 (H5) is adopted by ground handlers, airlines and airports.
Atul Kumbhare joins the team bringing 20 years industry experience to Hermes’ Indian office in Pune, where he will lead the development team and work with manager and head of quality control, Sachin Gokhale.
The UK office has welcomed Nishant Singh and Steve Palmer who will contribute a combined experience of 43 years in global digital system architecture to work on the development of Hermes NG, with the support of new staff set to join later this year.
Yuval Baruch, CEO of HLT says: “We are growing our teams in India and the UK to allow us to continue the development of new applications as part of our Hermes NG suite, which will complement H5’s software as a service (SaaS) Cloud offering. By growing our presence in India, we will be able to strengthen quality assurance and quality control, and in addition, provide a more tailored response to our Asian customers.”
Alexis Labonne, chief technology officer adds: “As Hermes continues to develop its core products to meet the demands of a growing customer base, we are pleased to welcome new members to our global team to provide support and innovation to our digital solution portfolio.”
Hermes NG, a modular, pay-as-you-go cargo management system giving functionality across devices began development in 2018 and goes to trial later next month.
The latest implementation of H5 took place at Luxembourg Airport for LuxairCARGO when the first phase of the CMS was completed at the end of 2018, and the second phase is set for deployment later this year.
H5 is popular in Asia following implementation at Hanoi Airport, Vietnam in April 2018, and will go live at Dubai World Central with RSA National; and Hyderabad Airport, India where HLT signed a five-year contract with GMR Group to provide rolling upgrades to the system.
It has also been adopted by USAL at Santiago Airport in Chile and by LUG at its newly acquired Hamburg terminal.
