Hermes Logistics Technologies (HLT) has welcomed back Simon Elmore as Chief Operations Officer.

The cargo management systems provider has reappointed Elmore as it continues to expand its New Generation (NG) Cargo Management Ecosystem with new applications and services.

Elmore returns to the role after a two-year absence, during which he worked as a consultant on a number of aviation and e-commerce projects.

He was part of the team that designed, built, and delivered the original Hermes CMS, whose latest version is called Hermes 5.

“This is a very exciting time for HLT, with so many possibilities for widening and aligning the product range,” said Simon Elmore. “It is clear that digitalisation has come into its own during the pandemic, but we have also learnt that staying connected and showing a human face is important.

“Our people are the key to our success and it is good to be back at the helm of a product team with so much focus on innovation and customer care.”
