Whether you prescribe to the latest school of thought that the world is flat and only likely to become more so on account of globalization or, conversely, believe in the more classic theory that isolationism and politically-driven trade agreements will rule the day, one thing is for sure: time and tide wait for no man.
This is to say that change is the only constant for those who chose to operate in today’s business environment.
ParceLive is a real-time parcel tracking service that connects users to live information about the location, condition and security of their assets regardless of their country, carrier or scale. At Hanhaa, regular ParceLive tests are carried out so that customers do not come across any technical issues when tracking shipments. One of Hanhaa’s top priorities when it comes to testing is to ensure that ParceLive’s GPS coverage is consistent and effective, regardless of location. One way of doing this is to provide a Hanhaa associate with the ParceLive tracker as they travel to a particular destination.
Ranked in the Top 30 Global Third-Party Logistics Providers (3PLs) and headquartered in Osanbrueck, Germany, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics provides a host of solutions to customers across multiple sectors including automotive, healthcare and renewables.
Within the automotive sector, Hellmann is using the ParceLive tracker to monitor the condition, security and location of high-performance German Sports cars that are transported from Bremerhaven, Germany, eastwards to the southwestern Chinese metropolis Chongqing. The cars are transported via a 11,000km long railway line that leads eastwards across Poland, Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan until they eventually arrive at Chongqing. With the journey duration lasting 16 to 18 days, it is vital that Hellmann has full transparency over the supply chain to ensure that they are informed of any delays and possible impacts caused to the cars.
