December 20, 2015

Hermes is delighted to announce that the Cairo Airport Cargo Company (CACC) has now gone live with the Hermes air cargo management system.

This switch over is the first stage of a two stage project which will also see Hermes installed into CACC’s new state- of-the-art terminal currently under construction.

The installation of Hermes is a significant step for CACC. Their new facility is part of a project, named “Cairo Cargo City” which will eventually include three main terminals: Import, Export and Express which have been designed to guarantee smooth and speedy operational processes within a highly secure facility.

“When it’s completed, Cairo Cargo City, will cover over 150,000m2 and will help CACC take the logistics market in Egypt to a new era of advanced logistics operations where process chains run smoothly in a synchronized manner,” says Amir Boulos, GM Finance and Administration. “The introduction of Hermes will allow us to compete at the highest levels, and provides the fast and efficient cargo clearance services expected by our customers now. We are already planning the installation of Hermes into our new facility which will be completed in Q1 2016.”

HERMES Logistics Technologies, Product Director, Simon Elmore added, “We are very pleased that CACC has chosen Hermes to support their growing business in today’s competitive world of cargo handling. This first stage switch over to Hermes shows how truly versatile theHermes Cargo Management System is and how easily it can be implemented. It’s stability was tested within hours of the “go live” with a Frankfurt freighter turnaround filled with perishables passing through CACC with no problems. We are looking forward to working with CACC’s excellent team again in the near future with the aim of transferring many of Hermes’ best practice processes into the new facility.”
