PHOENIX, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES – July 2, 2018 – Avnet (NASDAQ: AVT), a leading global technology distributor, announced today that it will begin to offer ParceLive, a real-time shipment tracking system, on a global basis to its customer base. The ParceLive service was developed by Hanhaa, a UK-based IoT innovator. By simply including a small ParceLive tracker, which is comprised of six embedded sensors and cellular data connectivity, into any parcel, users are connected and able to receive complete insight into any shipment’s journey, whether it is being shipped across country or around the world.
The ParceLive system actively captures important information in real-time, including location, temperature, and humidity; and in addition, will send alerts if the package has been dropped, opened or mis-handled. ParceLive provides users with delivery, network and implementation efficiencies to help lower the cost of doing business and improve profitability. Users of the service are now able to create direct workflows from real-time data straight from their global supply chain systems.
