Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, the global logistics provider, and Hanhaa Limited the Internet-of-Things innovator, has announced a partnership between the two companies 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. With global cellular data carried across Hanhaa’s wholly-owned mobile network, Hanhaa Mobile, ParceLive is an international solution that provides Hellmann with a unified data-flow about shipments from almost anywhere in the world.

Adding ParceLive to the company’s offering is another example of Hellmann’s global service Internet of Things (IoT) offerings and drive to remain at the forefront of innovation within logistics. The strategic partnership with Hanhaa will enable Hellmann to remain at the forefront of an IoT market that is expected to see rapid expansion in the coming years.
“ParceLive fulfils a need that many of our customers have been asking for – total visibility across their global supply chain,” said 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.”
