A key element in the success of ShockWatch Impact Indicators is the companion tools available.

Used in conjunction with the indicator labels, these tools include alert stickers, caution tape, posters, and supporting documentation.The complete product offering constitutes a highly effective damage reduction and prevention program.

Implementation of this damage prevention program provides psychological reinforcement of proper handling procedures and changes the behaviour of material handlers. It provides a highly visible deterrent to mishandling throughout the supply chain.

This program is most successful with collaboration from the carriers: the shipping, warehousing, and packaging departments.

The ShockWatch program includes the following:

  • Alert Sticker
    Affixed to the Bill of Lading, it cautions the carrier and consignee that the shipment is monitored

  • Companion Label
    The Companion Labels provide an additional visual warning and instructions on what to do if mishandling occurs. The Shockwatch Label or the MAG2000 is placed on the corresponding footprint printed on the labels.

  • Caution Tape
    Provides a visual warning against mishandling.

  • Posters
    Provides communications to carriers and customer receiving docks on the program elements.

  • Consultation
    A ShockWatch representative will assess your specific requirements and work with you to develop strategies for success.

  • Ongoing Customer Support
    ShockWatch representatives are always available to assist you in defining your program and ensuring its success.
    ShockWatch alert stickers and caution tape available separately.
