What is package transportation testing?

Package transportation testing is carried out to determine how a packaged product will perform under simulated environmental and distribution conditions.

At Anecto Test Services, we provide the full range of ISTA and ASTM tests. This suite of tests will determine if the packaging and cushioning materials being used will protect its contents while being transported and stored.

Why you need to test your packaging for transportation:

  • To validate package performance
  • To reduce product damage in transit
  • To introduce an appropriate level of package protection
  • To evaluate whether cost savings can be made by removing excessive packaging

Anecto has a range of packaging tests that will simulate the typical hazards your package will routinely encounter in the distribution cycle.

Transportation tests include:

  • Climatic conditioning
  • Impact and drop testing
  • Compression Testing
  • Vibration testing
  • Altitude testing
