Shipping and Handling Monitors

Drive down damages. Improve your margins. Protect your investments.

Product damage can have a serious impact on your company’s profits. That’s why Packnet only uses and provides ShockWatch® products. Implementation of shipping and handling monitors provides psychological reinforcement of proper handling procedures and changes the behavior of material handlers. It provides a highly visible deterrent to mishandling throughout the supply chain and encourages package handlers to be more conscious of their behavior and surroundings. The real success in a damage reduction program is preventing mishandling.

Utilizing a ShockWatch Program will deter mishandling and reduce damage-related costs to your products by indicating when the packaging has been exposed to a potentially damaging impact during transit or in storage. ShockWatch labels are tamperproof, mechanically activated devices that turn bright red when an impact occurs over the g force threshold of the ShockWatch label. ShockWatch labels have an omni-directional impact response. These products provide a full spectrum of damage prevention solutions, all tailored to your handling or shipping needs.
