Cargo software firms Hermes Logistics Technologies and Nallian are combining elements of their solutions covering slot booking and acceptance and delivery.
Through the partnership, Hermes customers will have access to a slot booking app that connects handlers, freight forwarders, and trucking companies do they can coordinate pick-ups and drop-offs and a mobile acceptance and delivery app to give 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.
“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 Hermes chief executive Yuval Baruch.
Nallian chief executive Jean Verheyen added: “Our collaboration will help ground handlers to enjoy the benefits of digitalisation in their extended processes, enabling them to do more with the same infrastructure.
“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.”
