Shipping your products can be a nerve-racking time, once there was no way to know if your goods would arrive safely, or if they’re being handled correctly but there is an innovative new product on the market that brings never before seen in the supply chain industry. Shockwatch® labels mean you no longer need to wait until your shipment is opened before inspecting for damage.
You’ve spent time and money investing in proper packaging materials for your goods, including all the extras like corrugated corner protectors and inflatable bottle packaging - but you don’t have to simply sit back and hope they arrive in a suitable condition, there are extra measures you can put in place to prevent the mishandling of your products during shipping, for business owners it’s a real blow to find out your goods have been damaged by a third party member of your trusted supply chain.
Luckily, there are shock and impact detection devices on the market that are activated when the package comes under more strain than anticipated.
These Shockwatch® self-adhesive labels monitor stresses that delicate goods are exposed to during transit. The indicators are fixed to outer packaging in clearly visible positions and the impact indicator changes colour when a specific acceleration speed is exceeded.
Shockwatch® labels have a self-adhering label you attach to your goods, on this label is an incredibly small glass device filled with liquid. When excess impact is made to the goods during transit, the liquid turns bright red providing indisputable evidence that your products have come under excess impact. The indicators are fixed to outer packaging in clearly visible positions and the impact indicator changes colour when a specific acceleration speed is exceeded. Shockwatch® labels should be adhered to the edge of any containers because it’s the most structurally sound part of the box, if the indicator was in the middle of the box then the shocks would be absorbed and a true reading would not be made.
Brands who use Shockwatch® labels can expect to freight claims by a 65%. This doesn't only improve costly claims, but improves the trust of staff along the supply chain as the driver, forklift operator etc. a visual reminder that certain care specifications are needed when handling the labelled products.
If you receive a shipment with a red indicator label it proves there has been some mishandling of your products. This does not mean you have to refuse the shipment, however, simply inspect the goods and contact the seller for their specific instructions.
