Hermes SaaS Ecosystem selected by CACC Cargolinx for Cairo air cargo management operations

Mar 29, 2024

Hermes Logistics Technologies’ (HLT) latest cloud-based Hermes SaaS Ecosystem is set to roll out across CACC Cargolinx’s operations at Cairo International Airport in time for summer 2024.

Following a successful 12-year collaboration with HLT, the new agreement will see the cargo-specialised ground handler upgrade its cargo management system by migrating to Hermes 5 SaaS.

In addition, CACC Cargolinx will benefit from several integrations and solutions from the Hermes pay-as-you-go Ecosystem, designed to drive further efficiencies for the company – Hermes Business Intelligence, Hermes Track & Trace and Hermes Integration (API).

“We have undertaken a very thorough scoping study with CACC Cargolinx, deploying our air cargo experts to uncover not only the company’s existing requirements but also those expected in the future, and we have tailored our solution, ensuring it is future-proofed,” said Yuval Baruch, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), HLT.

“This project demonstrates our commitment to collaborating with our customers and our detailed approach to SaaS migrations, particularly when it comes to factoring in future innovation – it all comes down to delivering greater operational efficiency that will support business growth for the longest possible term.

HLT has worked closely with CACC Cargolinx to assess the business’ requirements and deliver a tailored, future-proofed solution for the organisation.

The upgrade will see the company further digitalise its evolving operating environment, address all existing process gaps, and implement best-practice approaches to address anticipated future needs for its operations in Cairo and beyond.

The commitment from CACC Cargolinx is the latest in a series of confirmed migrations to Hermes 5 SaaS, as the technology provider rolls out its latest CMS and its Ecosystem of cargo management solutions across the globe.

“CACC Cargolinx is committed to delivering advanced logistics operations at Cairo International Airport, and our investment in the Hermes Ecosystem represents a significant step forward in our digitalisation roadmap, said Ahmed Fahmy, Chief Technology Officer, CACC Cargolinx.

“We are committed to providing our customers with the most efficient and reliable cargo handling services possible, and the Hermes Ecosystem will empower us to achieve that goal and further solidify our position as a leader in the air cargo handling industry.

“HLT’s cloud-based SaaS ecosystem will allow us to drive even greater efficiencies for our airline customers both here in Cairo and beyond. The end-to-end solution integrates easily with both our existing and planned systems and we expect the Business Intelligence add-on to provide a more robust foundation for us to take another step forward with our predictive capacities on operational and commercial matters.”

Hermes 5 SaaS brings HLT's latest function-rich cargo management system into the cloud and provides access to the rest of HLT’s Ecosystem of cargo management solutions, including API (application programming interface) capabilities, apps for Business Intelligence, Track & Trace, and a Learning Management System.
