IOT logistics tracker service Hanhaa launches new US fulfilment hub in Chicago

Hanhaa, the IOT company that has developed trackers that allow third-party logistics providers and logistics companies to monitor the status and condition of parcels, has launched a new US fulfilment hub to drive expansion for its ParceLive service.

The company has launched a Chicago hub for the ParceLive trackers which are inserted into shipments and allow the monitoring of everything from location to temperature and humidity and whether a consignment has been opened or not.

The move comes following a new partnership with iD Commerce + Logistics, a Chicago-based business process and fulfilment outsourcer who will support the US distribution and reverse logistics for the data trackers.

After the trackers have been used they are returned to iD’s Chicago facility where the data is erased before the tracker is prepared for its next use. “We’re delighted to be working with Hanhaa to support their disruption of the logistics industry,” said Dan Arriola, CEO, ID Commerce + Logistics. “We specialise in unique programs to support multi-channel marketers and beyond this deal, we’ll be looking to introduce ParceLive into our own operations.”

Hanhaa has accelerated its US expansion since a corporate investment in May 2018 by technology distributor Avnet. “This agreement with iD will create an excellent partnership for growth,” said Azhar Hussain, CEO and founder of Hanhaa.
