Shock and Vibration Logging of Goods in Transit

Quick Overview

During transportation, freight is subjected to a wide range of external influences that could lead to goods becoming damaged. The dataloggers manufactured by MSR Electronics provide seamless information about the transportation conditions of a shipment. The data recorded by these miniaturised measuring instruments serves not only to determine the cause of possible damage but also deliver findings that could help improve the design of the goods themselves.


China: A grinding machine worth £1,000,000 arrives at its final destination following a trans-oceanic flight. The fir transportation case in which the valuable freight was carefully packed  appears undamaged. However, when the case is opened it becomes apparent that the machine itself is badly damaged. Presumably the screw on the transportation lock was loosened as a result of a mechanical shock and the moveable part of the machine fractured and separated. It was assumed that a forklift or crane set the case down too fast. Where and how the damage was actually caused remains unclear, because the grinding machine was not fitted with a datalogger from MSR Electronics that would rapidly have been able to answer the riddle of how the damage occurred.

Prevention is better than remedy

In order to save their business partners this sort of stress and make the transportation conditions more transparent, the packaging services provider is now using the MSR165 datalogger. With 1,600 shock measurements per second, its air pressure and humidity sensor together with temperature measurements, the MSR 165  can detect every unplanned event. The sensitive light sensor can also reveal with seamless precision, when a package was opened. The MSR165 documents every little change together with the exact time it took place. In co-operation with the haulier it is usually possible to pinpoint the cause quickly. This allows the costs of the damage - or at least the correct apportionment - to be passed straight on to the party that was responsible.
