Hermes Logistics Technologies (HLT) has been awarded the contract by air services provider dnata to digitalise cargo handling processes in a new warehouse the latter is creating, Freight Building 17 (FB17).

Located within dnata’s Cargo City at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, HLT is collaborating with logistics systems supplier Lödige Industries (Lödige) to pioneer the fully automated cargo centre, following a multi-million-euro investment by dnata, says an official release from Hermes.

"FB17 will see the implementation of HLT’s latest cloud-based cargo management system, the Hermes Software as a Service (SaaS) Ecosystem, which will enable unparalleled operational efficiency, improved oversight, and greater control over all ground handling processes."

Yuval Baruch, CEO, Hermes says: “This project is a true testament to what can be achieved once the air cargo industry embraces digitalisation, and the creation of FB17 should herald a new age of warehouse innovation. The final integrated solution demanded complicated design, and is the result of strong collaboration and careful planning between HLT, Lödige, and dnata, representing a crucial step toward adapting to the demands of a rapidly evolving industry.”

HLT has a long-standing relationship with dnata The Netherlands, serving the Amsterdam terminal since 2010, the release added.

“Our extensive development has resulted in an extremely sophisticated digital solution, which will enable dnata to meet more stringent service level agreements related to efficiency,” adds Baruch.

Jan van Anrooy, Managing Director, dnata The Netherlands adds: “Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is one of Europe’s best-connected airports, meaning it requires a highly efficient cargo operation. Our collaboration with Hermes Logistics Technologies and Lödige will enable us to meet rapidly growing demand for structured and reliable services, setting a new industry standard in innovation."

HLT has completed first-stage integration testing for FB17, and the solution is expected to be live at the end of this year. Besides Amsterdam, HLT currently provides cargo management solutions to dnata in Australia, Belgium and Singapore, the release added.
