A key element in the success of ShockWatch Impact Indicators is the available companion tools. Used in conjunction with the indicator labels, these tools include alert stickers, alert tape, posters, and supporting documentation. The complete product offering constitutes a highly effective damage reduction and prevention program.

Implementation of this damage prevention program leads to 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.
