Shipping tests in Safe Load Testing Technologies


Safe Load Testing Technologies offers to the companies simulation equipment that reproduce physical and mechanical risk associated with the goods distribution process, to improve quality and reduce damages and costs.

With distribution packaging, one of the most important considerations is to determine if a packaged-product is likely to be damaged in the process of getting to the final costumer. Thus the main purpose of a package testing is to ensure the safety of a product during transportation and storage.


Shipping test standards


There are several standards organizations that publish test methods for shipping testing that are used by companies to validate package compliance: International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ASTM International, International Safe Transit Association (ISTA), and the European Safe Logistics Association (EUMOS), among other accepted industry standards. The main objective of this package testing is to ensure that packages are able to support the activities associated with handling and distribution such as accidental drops, vehicle vibration, shock inputs, extreme temperatures or compression loads without suffering any defect or damage.

All the solutions we offer in Safe Load meet a full range of these shipping test standards including ISTA, ASTM, ISO, EN or EUMOS, with the guarantee of maximum reliability and accuracy, simulating the reality in each test.
