The common package test is ISTA,the purpose of it is to insure product arrive destination safely. In fact,package transportation, distribution and disposition are very enormous and complex process. Conduct simulation tests in the laboratory could be a easy convenient effective low-cost way to assess package protection design. After specialized test, the package can achieve targets for reliability, environment protection property, reusability and meet national standard.
1. Reduce the chance of damage during transportation due to packaging problems
2. Reduce comprehensive production cost
3. Reduce claim disputes
4. Shorten package development time
5. Improve customer confidence
6. In addition to making the packaging more environmentally friendly and in line with the laws and regulations of various countries, it also improves the image of corporate social responsibility
Package transportation test registered laboratory
By seeking help from a package test laboratory registered with ISTA, manufacturers can conduct a series of package and paper tests in accordance with ISTA, TAPPI, ISO, ASTM, EN, and other standards. Upon passing the test, a transport test certification label will be affixed to the transport personnel to prove that the packaging has passed the industry-recognized pre-transport laboratory test.
The international safe transport association (ISTA), an association of professionals and institutions, is the authoritative organization for international packaging transportation. ISTA is dedicated to the development, design, and cost-benefit evaluation of protective transport packages.When your packaging design passes the ISTA test, you can be sure that the packaging can be effectively protected in a continuous shipping environment and will not be harmed by foreseeable factors.
ISTA is a pioneer in packaging testing and certification, which has been in existence for more than 60 years, and is still the industry leader today. ISTA members include shippers responsible for producing and transporting products, carriers responsible for shipping, corporate organizations that provide packaging materials and services, and packaging testing laboratories.The agency issued a series of standards and documents such as test procedures and test projects as a unified basis for assessing the safety performance of transport packages.
(ISTA is not a package transportation management organization, but a representative organization.Through the laboratory authorized by this institution, the relevant testing technology reaches the world excellent level)
