Panalpina today announced a strategic alliance with US technology company Honeywell. Honeywell is to become a technology partner supporting Panalpina’s global innovation initiatives around connected distribution centers, connected supply chains, and connected workers. The partnership is focused on productivity, accuracy, and efficiency improvements.
Panalpina will deploy Honeywell’s industry-leading technology solutions globally at its warehouses, including voice directed solutions, mobile hand-held devices, and warehouse automation solutions. The two companies agreed to a strategic alliance to jointly collaborate and deploy solutions that deliver value to Panalpina’s global customer base.
