Printer company HP has announced a new agreement with Handheld Group to sell products across the globe.

The items will be based on the company's thermal ink cartridges and will be aimed at the logistics industry, with the Swedish firm specialising in manufacturing mobile computers for data acquisition in out-of-office applications.

Kathy Tobin, vice president and general manager of specialty printing systems at HP, said: "HP continues uncovering new applications where our inkjet technology can address specific industry challenges.

"We’re excited to combine our resources with Handheld Group to create printing solutions that will simplify logistics and supply chain operations."

The HP ink cartridges used in Handheld Group's future products may feature a quick-drying, smudge-free magneta ink, which will be formulated superficially for high visibility on items used in logistics, including corrugated boxes and packing tape.

Recently, HP announced that it will appear at this year's EcoPrint Europe event on September 26th and 27th in Berlin.
