Why Package Testing
Applied Technical Services offers package testing within our environmental testing laboratory. Packages are designed to protect their contents from many harmful factors during shipping and handling, including varying temperatures and humidity, being dropped or pushed, and experiencing vibrations. Fortunately, package testing services from labs such as ATS can methodically test packages to ensure that they meet the right standards. The reliability and efficiency of successful packaging design can save companies a significant amount of time, effort, and expense.
ATS performs package testing in accordance with the International Safe Transit Association (ISTA)’s standards. The ISTA is an international leader in developing testing protocols and design standards to ensure satisfactory performance from packaging materials. Our environmental testing lab offers an array of ISTA tests, including ISTA 3A testing – a standard designed for simulating real-world conditions that individually packaged products under 150 pounds and shipped by either ground or air may experience during their journey.
