ShockWatch® RFID (radio-frequency identification) ensures minimal damage incidents throughout the supply chain. When an RFID reader remotely scans a package, the impact label automatically records its condition in enterprise resource planning (ERP) software or warehouse management system.

By integrating RFID inventory management with impact-damage monitoring, users can effectively prevent, detect and diagnose damage at every stage of the supply chain.

Instant Reporting with Shock Monitoring

Automated reporting allows remote reading inside boxes, crates, or packages, eliminating reliance on visual indicators. ShockWatch RFID automatically identifies products requiring damage inspections, distinguishing them from undamaged items. The impact label establishes accountability by pinpointing the location of damage incidents, facilitating the prompt resolution of underlying issues.

Scanning the product into the system instantly reports any g-force threshold events, enabling swift evaluation of packages for damage. This allows mid-shipment diversion of products for inspection and expedites the shipment of critical replacement items without awaiting the shipment’s arrival.

Prevent, Detect and Diagnose Damage in the Supply Chain

Any UHF RFID reader can read the shock indicators, offering a system for damage reporting. The tamperproof shock indicators also visually indicate impact exceeding a specific g-force threshold by turning red, signalling the need for quality inspection.

Monitoring packages reduces damage by 40-60%, resulting in fewer repairs or replacements, minimized delays and disruptions and reduced claims. Use companion labels with ShockWatch® RFID for clear instructions if the damage is suspected.
