Transport tests not only ensure that your packaging protects the products within but also that it can live up to the various exacting demands during the transport cycle. It can help to optimise the packaging allowing consideration of cost, material and amount of packaging required.
A complete transport test simulates the entire distribution cycle from the manufacturer to the end user and various standard tests can be carried out to simulate parts or all of the transport cycle. Depending on the kind of packaging you have and its distribution chain, we offer the following tests to evaluate your packaging.
Compression/In vehicle box stacking
Horizontal impact tests

Resonate Testing is a ISTA (International Safe Transit Association) certified lab. One crucial benefit of an ISTA certification is the confidence it instils in buyers, knowing that their packaging has undergone rigorous testing procedures - and therefore will not cause them reputational damage. In fact, an ISTA certification is often required by larger retailers like Amazon. Additionally, you have the assurance that there will be a reduction in transit damage, your product arrives intact and you have another happy customer.
Transportation and logistics testing is also particularly applicable for more sensitive goods, such as medical devices, for example and for dangerous goods such as lithium batteries. Special considerations are required when transporting these goods and packing material needs to be up to the task.
