Hermes Logistics Technologies, Nallian collaborate to launch new GHA landside solution
Cargo Management Systems (CMS) provider Hermes Logistics Technologies (HLT) has teamed up with data sharing and connected cargo community specialist Nallian to empower Ground Handling Agents (GHA)s with an end-to-end solution to digitalise and streamline their landside management processes.
Nallian’s landside management applications will complement Hermes New Generation (NG) Ecosystem solutions, offering GHAs a paperless approach that provides end-to-end visibility and control across their supply chain.
“We are empowering the ground handler by joining our ecosystems together to give them better control and increased efficiency through better customer experience and superior functionality,” said Yuval Baruch, chief executive officer, HLT. He adds, “Nallian’s complementary offering leant itself to a partnership with Hermes and our collaboration will ensure a best-in-breed process with the technology to work for our customers.”
HLT customers will benefit from additional services including a Slot Booking App, which connects handlers, freight forwarders, and trucking companies to coordinate pick-ups and drop-offs, eliminating waiting times and flattening peaks and idle times. A mobile Acceptance and Delivery App, which gives truck drivers easy access to the booked slots assigned to them, enabling the real-time registration of all actions during the pick-up or drop-off process. HLT has a range of NG Apps as part of the Hermes NG Ecosystem including, NG Business Intelligence, and Datalakes, and NG Track&Trace, designed to maximise a GHA’s profit by giving access to data and supply chain visibility.
The NG Ecosystem product range enables GHAs to provide superior service through data sharing and tools to manage exception handling.
Nallian offers a suite of collaborative applications on top of its Open Data Sharing Platform that empowers both cargo communities and individual cargo actors, such as GHAs, to easily connect and share relevant data with their stakeholders, achieving unparalleled levels of efficiency and visibility in cross-company processes.
“Our collaboration will help ground handlers to enjoy the benefits of digitisation in their extended processes, enabling them to do more with the same infrastructure,” said Jean Verheyen, chief executive officer, Nallian. Verheyen adds, “Our apps have been built with and for air cargo stakeholders and this collaboration perfectly fits Nallian’s open approach, which aims at giving as many cargo actors as possible access to best-in-class solutions and the benefits of digitisation.”
With data sharing being a key element to the collaboration, HLT has been working on projects to use its Datalake infrastructure that captures and stores Hermes NG Business Intelligence events, including developing predictive business analytics with artificial intelligence algorithms.
