Cargo Handling

HLT aims to simplify ground handling with new tech partnership

By Edward Robertson

Ground handling agents could find their jobs a little easier thanks to a new partnership between Hermes Logistics Technologies (HLT) and connected cargo community specialist Nallian.

Following the deal, HLT, which provides cargo management systems, will now be able to digitalise and streamline its entire landside management processes.

Benefits will include a slot booking app connecting handlers, freight forwarders and trucking companies to coordinate pick-ups and drop-offs while a new mobile acceptance and delivery app will give truck drivers easy access to the slots assigned to them.
