Smart Visibility

With the new Smart Visibility Tracker, Hellmann revolutionizes the real-time monitoring of transports of all kinds. The live shipment tracking service makes it possible to determine the exact location, condition, and security of shipments anywhere in the world. The devices provide data on humidity, temperature, the incidence of light, vibration, and door opening and thus offer a detailed control option. Installation is simple and allows the device to be integrated into the supply chain in no time without IT or personnel effort.

The tracking device is universally applicable for all transport units, such as containers, trucks, pallets, and parcels - even if your shipments are not handled by us. It enables seamless tracking of your goods, even on the high seas, and comes with an automated digital returns management: After use, the postcard-sized device may simply be dropped into the next mailbox. Alternatively, we offer Smart Visibility as a disposable device in case a return is not possible. Thanks to the pay-as-you-go approach, Smart Visibility is also interesting for companies with fluctuating mail volumes.
