“Our technologies and unique solutions can change the way we move goods

Position Imaging. “By providing highly accurate, real-time data at every
step of the shipping process, couriers, retailers, customers and
suppliers will experience drastically improved efficiency and delivery
service. With HLDS on board, we are excited to share these revolutionary
systems with the world.”
HLDS, a joint venture of Hitachi and LG Electronics based in Tokyo, is a
world leader in optical technology and will manufacture Position
Imaging’s innovative package tracking systems. The two companies have
been working together to complete product designs and prepare HLDS’
manufacturing facility in Malaysia for volume production.
The partnership will be formally announced by HLDS CEO Young Keun Park
and Position Imaging CEO Ned Hill on Friday, June 22 at 2 p.m. at
Position Imaging’s headquarters in Stratham, NH. Rokuichiro Michii,
Consul General of Japan in New England, will also participate in the
event along with New Hampshire elected officials.
“We are very excited to be part of such a powerful product platform,”
Park said. “Position Imaging’s technologies and product solutions have
many different applications in many different markets and we believe
this can have a direct impact on last mile delivery and logistics in
general. It’s a highly innovative technology in the industry and we’re
proud to be a part of it.”
The Amoeba™ line includes Position Imaging’s computer vision system and
the company’s radio-tracking RTLS (Real Time Location System) line.
Together, the systems work to form a single “cell,” providing complete
real time visibility of the location and movement of packages, assets,
and personnel during the entire logistics process. This unique platform
provides position data of goods from hub to home without requiring any
radio frequency IDs or special labeling on the items being tracked. For
