The HERMES team touched down in Frankfurt in early January for the go-live of the HERMES Ground Handling solution for privately owned ground handling experts, Çelebi. The implementation has been turned around in record time after Çelebi signed contracts to deploy the HERMES software within their 15,193 m² warehouse.
This contemporary facility based in Frankfurt Cargo City South, is the result of Çelebi’s strategy to increase their presence in the German market where demand for air cargo services has increased year on year. With the latest technology and investments in machinery and equipment, the team in Germany will now be able to utilise the vast functionality of the HERMES system, providing a smooth and efficient service at Frankfurt airport, ranking second in Europe for volume of air cargo traffic.
This facility will give Çelebi a cargo handling capacity of 180-200,000 tons a year through Frankfurt Airport, while also providing space for airline companies in two separate office blocks, where Çelebi’s new European head office will also be located.
The implementation of the HERMES software underlines Çelebi’s ambition for growth whilst retaining their key philosophy of exceptional customer service and the ability to offer flexible and reliable cargo handling.
