“My technical experience allows me to be both responsive to market demands, as well as changing technology trends,” he said.
H5 will enter the market later this year, with a leading European handling agent amongst its first customers to deploy the new version.
“Hermes has invested considerably to advance our technological infrastructure, as well as the Hermes functionality,” said Yuval Baruch, HLT chief executive. “Our H5 version is proof of our innovation-focused approach to the industry.”
Mr Labonne will head a HLT team of air cargo technical experts following a digital roadmap to use the power of cloud services, IoT, AI and blockchain technologies.
“I’d like to take this opportunity and thank Oded for his contribution to improving the Hermes system, internal processes and the recent major version that will be the base for our future,” added Mr Baruch.
