Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, Miami, Fla., and Hanhaa Ltd., UK, announced a partnership to deploy Hanhaa’s ParceLive real-time tracking and multi-point data solution across Hellmann’s worldwide operations.
ParceLive trackers are inserted into shipments and enable Hellmann to access a host of data on its supply chain activities, including shipment location, temperature, humidity and when a consignment has been opened.
Adding ParceLive to the company’s offering is another example of Hellmann’s global Internet of Things (IoT) offerings.
“ParceLive fulfils a need that many of our customers have been asking for – total visibility across their global supply chain,” says Henning Pottharst, global smart visibility manager, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics. “With the new tracking tool, we enable a wide range of customers to use real-time data to their competitive advantage.”
“We are delighted to receive another endorsement from a leading company like Hellmann – they clearly recognize the importance of innovation to their business. With ParceLive at the forefront of the IoT logistics market, we believe this will be an excellent partnership for years to come,” says Azhar Hussain, founder and CEO of Hanhaa. “At Hanhaa, our team has been working tirelessly over the last three years to bring the vision for improved, more secure and scalable IoT innovations to life.”
With a built-in return logistics system, comprising of international postal licenses enabled by a dynamic e-ink return address label, ParceLive trackers are seamlessly returned to Hanhaa after use, where data is erased and the tracker is readied for a new journey within Hellmann’s logistics infrastructure.
