The Alert Tape is a packaging indicator that served as a visual alert to carriers that the impact indicators are currently in use and monitored for mishandling. Bright in colour, the Alert Tape is imprinted with the words “Caution” and “Handle with Care”, making them easily recognisable for many. The tape is also reflective, which makes the message visible from a distance or in the dark, which reduces the risk of damaged goods during shipment. For applications, the Alert Tape should be stuck on the outside of packages.
