I. Packaging Transportation Test
Our HQTS-QAI lab is equipped with cutting-edge testing facilities and is accredited by domestic and international leading authorities including the International Safe Transit Association (ISTA) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) for packaging and transportation testing. We can provide a series of packaging transportation testing services according to ISTA, ATEM D4169, GB/T4857, etc. to help you improve your packaging solutions and meet market requirements in terms of product compliance and safety during transportation.
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.

The Pre-Production Inspection (PPI) is a type of quality control inspection conducted before the production process begins to assess the quantity and quality of the raw materials and components, and whether they are in conformity with product specifications.
During Production Inspection (DPI) or otherwise known as DUPRO, is a quality control inspection conducted while production is underway, and is especially good for products that are in continuous production.
The Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI) is one of many types of quality control inspections conducted by HQTS. It is an important step in the quality control process and is the method for checking the quality of goods before they are shipped.
