ShockWatch® RFID, leveraging radio-frequency identification technology, is designed to reduce incidents of damage throughout the supply chain.

When a package with an RFID-enabled impact label is scanned remotely by an RFID reader, its condition is automatically logged into an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software or warehouse management system.

Efficient Shock Monitoring and Automated Reporting

ShockWatch RFID’s automated reporting enables remote monitoring within containers. This eliminates the need for manual visual checks. The indicator promptly flags products that may have suffered damage and effectively segregates them from undamaged goods.

The indicator’s ability to pinpoint the exact location of damage incidents significantly aids in diverting products mid-shipment for inspections and accelerates the dispatch of crucial replacement items without waiting for the arrival of the entire shipment. This facilitates the effective identification or damage rectification at every stage of the supply chain.

Visible Damage Alert and Comprehensive Diagnosis

ShockWatch® RFID can be read by any UHF RFID reader, providing a systematic approach to damage reporting. These tamper-proof shock indicators also offer a visual signal of impact exceeding specified g-force thresholds by turning red, prompting a quality inspection.

Based on past trends, utilising ShockWatch® RFID can lead to a 40-60% reduction in damage, resulting from decreased repair and replacement needs, fewer delays and disruptions, and reduced insurance claims. For enhanced clarity, companion labels can be used with ShockWatch® RFID for recommended guidelines on managing a suspected damage incident.
