Hermes Logistics Technologies' latest cloud-based cargo management system is now live across Groundforce Portugal’s cargo stations

Hermes Logistics Technologies (HLT) says it invested in months of technological installation, configuration, and activation development to ensure its Hermes 5 Software as a Service software was delivered entirely by automated coding and scripts. This means there is no need for manual intervention and an implementation process featuring incredible efficiency and uniformity.

“Migrating Groundforce Portugal from a legacy, on-site solution to our latest Hermes 5 managed service demonstrates HLT’s unwavering drive to embrace technology which will enhance its products and services,” said Yuval Baruch, chief executive officer, HLT.

“Leveraging the latest automated platform deployment and management techniques enabled us to complete the migration very quickly, and the entire process demonstrates our commitment to working closely with our customers to deliver greater operational efficiency and business growth."

Through its managed service, HLT now maintains and monitors the ground handler's servers, managing software updates, performing regular security audits, and recognising and actively solving any issues before they arise. 

The fully automated installation ensures scalability, meaning Hermes 5 SaaS can be deployed across further stations easily, efficiently, and uniformly when required. 

The go-live represents the continuation of a series of successful migrations to Hermes 5 SaaS, as the technology provider rolls out its latest CMS and ecosystem of cargo management solutions across Europe. The solution is now in use at Groundforce Portugal’s cargo stations at Lisbon, Porto, and Funchal airports.
