Hanhaa is currently a provider of IoT innovations to the global logistics and supply chain industry. With its own wholly-owned, IoT dedicated, secure mobile network in place, Hanhaa is able to deliver real-time tracking – including location, condition and security of goods – across the globe for clients in the retail, pharmaceutical and automotive sectors, among others.
Avnet is strategically focused on identifying and supporting high-potential startup companies, like Hanhaa, that are developing today’s leading edge IoT solutions. Avnet simplifies product development by supporting customers at every stage of the design cycle with a full suite of in-house capabilities, providing seamless design, manufacturing and supply chain services to get products to market faster.
As a part of this new relationship, Hanhaa will leverage Avnet’s design services for new product design and development, and draw upon the breadth of Avnet’s fulfillment pipeline and components distribution capabilities– needed by Hanhaa for volume production.
In addition, Avnet will broaden the range of opportunities for Hanhaa technologies by engaging its robust online communities, element14 and Hackster.io, that have a total membership of almost one million makers and engineers, about these new technologies using content, contests and promotions.
Premier Farnell, a global high-service distributor of electronic components, and part of the Avnet group, will distribute Hanhaa’s Symbisa and ParceLive boards.
Symbisa is an off the shelf and easy to use product that allows the user to embed the sensors into whichever application they need. ParceLive, the first global-scale IoT deployment of Symbisa, is a tracking service from Hanhaa that provides users with real-time information about the location, condition and security of their assets, no matter the country or logistics carrier.
