The wide range of ShockWatch indicators are not indicators of damage, they are an indicator of mishandling. If a package has not been mishandled, the circular indicator in the center of the ShockWatch Label will remain white. If the package has been dropped, the indicator will show full or partial red coloration. Any red in the ShockWatch indicators window alerts receivers to inspect the package for any potential damage. When a shipment arrives at a destination with an activated ShockWatch Label, the receiver should immediately note any visible damage to the shipment. Open the package and inspect for any damage to the goods.
Each g shock indicator has a corresponding “G”, which means that when the indicator is subjected to a shock acceleration that exceeds the G value number, the indicator will start to become red. The larger the number is, the greater the shock force required. (Ref: What Is『G』 Of Shock Watch Indicator? How Do You Use?)
