New ShockWatch 2 Helps Shippers Save Money and Detect Damage
New-to-market ShockWatch 2 impact indicator helps shippers reduce costs and accurately assign accountability for damage.
EAGAN, Minn. — New shipping impact indicator -- the ShockWatch 2 -- is now available through Packnet Ltd., a manufacturer of industrial custom packaging and wood packaging solutions. The ShockWatch 2 is a new and improved monitor that provides indisputable evidence of mishandling during transportation and shipping for customers shipping packages, crates or containers.
“The new ShockWatch 2 goes beyond just the package,” said Packnet General Manager Dan Schultze. “It allows shippers and carriers to determine where the damage is occurring along the route and take additional steps for future prevention. This will help our customers reduce costs in the supply chain because it alerts handlers that a ShockWatch program has been implemented.”
There are degrees of sensitivity options on the new ShockWatch 2 that go up according to freight size. The indicators are not activated until they are peeled and adhered to the package or crate. Activation occurs when a package has exceeded the G level threshold, which means it was improperly dropped or handled. The indicator is tamperproof and serialized, providing indisputable evidence of the handling conditions.
Targeted products that will benefit from the impact indicators are: automotive components, semiconductor devices, computer hard drives, lab equipment, glass products, electronics, storage media, and many others.
