ISTA Package Test

Whatever the nature or scope of your packaging needs, our packaging professionals are ready to help. From assessments to recommendations, we can test your packaging in a real world transport environment to assess your current packaging, both from a materials and design point of view.

While laboratory simulations of transport are often the best, fastest and most economical methods for package testing, there are times when real world transit testing is the best solution to understand issues with your packaging.

You can rely on our team for analysis, assessment, supporting and accurate reporting. We work closely with your packaging professionals to design a real world transport testing protocol that will meet your specialized needs according to both ISTA and ASTM standards.


ISTA is an organization focusing on the specific concerns of transport packaging. They have developed the industry standards for test procedures that define and measure how packages should perform to full integrity of the contents. ISTA’s published series of standards and testing protocols provides a uniform basis for the safety and evaluation of packaging performance under various real-life conditions during handling and transit.


ASTM’s paper and packaging standards are instrumental in the evaluation and testing of the physical, mechanical, and chemical properties of various pulp, paper, and paperboard materials that are processed primarily to make containers, shipping boxes and parcels, and other packaging and labeling products. These standards help to identify materials characteristics that help users of paper materials and products in the proper processing and assessment procedures to ensure their quality towards efficient commercial use.
