ShockWatch® TempMark® 8 Selected Material Handling, Storage & Logistics Top Product at 2011 Europack ConferenceTuesday, January 24, 2012
ShockWatch, a global leader in detecting and preventing damage in the logistics supply chain and storage of products, announced that its newest cold chain temperature monitor, the TempMark 8, has won the “Coup de Coeur, Produit Phare” (Show Favorite) award for Material Handling, Storage & Logistics at the 2011 Europack Conference. TempMark 8 is an innovative, cost-effective and disposable monitor for temperature-sensitive shipments that bridges the cost gap between low cost go / no-go indicators and more expensive temperature recorders.
The 13th annual Europack Euromanut Conference, held November 15–17 in Lyon, France, included 8,000 attendees focused on real-world solutions to packaging and its equipment, shipping and handling. The panel of 10 packaging, material handling, and logistics journalists and professionals selected the TempMark 8 as the top product in the Material Handling, Storage & Logistics category and it was one of 62 overall products nominated.
Jérôme Czap, general manager at Tilt-Import, a leading distributor of ShockWatch products in Europe, nominated the TempMark 8 product and represented the company at an awards ceremony held at the event. “Our European cold chain customers have been looking for a specific temperature monitoring device that could be used everywhere that a high-end recorder could not, yet be easy-to-use and field-activated," said Mr. Czap. “This product fits that need, as we are seeing an enormous demand for not just pharmaceutical products, but for fresh and frozen foods, ink toner and paint.”
“It’s truly an honor to be selected the winner of this award,” said Angela Kerr, director of product management at ShockWatch. “We have had outstanding response to the product since its inception, but this recognition by an esteemed group of industry experts confirms the innovative approach we have taken to delivering a product the industry really needs.”
