The nightmare scenario for everyone shipping a valuable product is that it is damaged or non-functioning on arrival. In many instances, damage during shipping is obvious. The shipping container is badly torn, dented or crushed.
Sometimes damage during shipping is not obvious: The product gets to the customers dock with the container appearing to be in good shape. Yet the delicate product is not working. One explanation for this is that you shipped the product that way and it’s up to you to prove otherwise. This is where Packnet’s handling indicator products help.

Whether one uses 1 or 2 depends on a number of factors including cost, as the monitoring/ recording sensors can be much more expensive than the single use indicators. Sometimes just knowing that a threshold was exceeded is enough, other times it might be more complicated. A product can easily withstand a momentary exposure to a given temperature, but it can’t be exposed for an extended period of time. Recording sensors are also used for experimentation and testing as well as trouble shooting problem areas during shipping.
