 RSA National to take full advantage of the leading Cargo Management System from Hermes Logistics Technologies (HLT), called Hermes 5 SaaS (H5), HLT’s managed Cloud H5 variant

London, United Kingdom, Thursday 15th November 2018 – Hermes Logistics Technologies has been selected as the new Cargo Management System (CMS) provider for UAE-based logistics specialist RSA National (RSAN).

As a leading provider of CMS Hub Management System (HMS) and Hermes Business Intelligence (HBI), Hermes will optimise cargo handling capabilities for RSAN at its new flagship air cargo terminal at Dubai World Central.

Hermes 5 (H5) is the latest version of the Hermes application offering the latest best-of-breed functionality, a contemporary User Interface / User Experience delivered through a robust cloud infrastructure.

“This will be a full SaaS Hermes 5 implementation and we anticipate a quick implementation of fewer than three months from contract to go-live,” said Yuval Baruch, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Hermes Logistics Technologies.

“We are particularly proud that RSA National selected Hermes after they identified our close fit to their vision and strategy as well as the high level of Hermes responsiveness,” Baruch added.

RSAN is a new joint venture between US-based National and UAE-based RSA Global, and is an integrator offering multimodal supply chain solutions focused primarily on the e-commerce, perishables, government, humanitarian, and retail sectors.

H5 will provide RSAN with its own, fully integrated management tool that will interface with its local community and customers, allowing for smarter process flows as well as messaging compliance.

The Hermes implementation will also give RSAN more control over key areas such as Customs, Service Management, and Revenue Accounting, offering the supply chain specialist a single system that is configured to its needs and the requirements of its customer base.

“RSA National is very pleased to partner with Hermes to provide a best-in-class platform, through which we can continue to provide seamless solutions to our customers,” said Abhishek Ajay Shah, Co-Founder and CEO of RSA Global.

“Our steadfast goal is to steer our operations with utmost visibility and control, and to extend the same facility to our customers.

“We believe that Hermes’ CMS is the perfect tool for RSA National to realise this objective.”

H5, which is being rolled out globally, is a full SaaS implementation capable of running within any Cloud, modernising the Hermes framework for seamless integration with new technologies.

Hermes commenced the global rollout of H5 earlier this year with the implementation of its CMS at ALS Cargo Terminal Co, Ltd at Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi (HAN), Vietnam followed by LuxairCARGO at Luxemburg Airport (LUX), and recently at UASL (Ultramar Group) at Comodoro Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport (SCL).
