While a product may be well designed for operation in its intended location, how it gets from point of origin to point of use has the potential to cause damage and degradation due to stresses in handling, transportation and supply chain hazards.
The packaging in which a product ships has to withstand potential physical and environmental exposures from manual or automatic handling, storage and stacking, transport vibration from road, rail, sea or air transport, potential for fall/drop, as well as hot, cold or humid conditions.
The importance of protecting products from a myriad of consumer delivery mechanisms is greater than ever. Pre-shipment distribution testing offers a valuable understanding of packaged-product performance. These testing processes enable organisations and their people to minimise product damage through distribution and optimise resource usage through effective package design.
In some sectors, product is designed to be transported to point of use throughout its lifetime, often in harsh environments. Robust and effective package handling and transit systems are required.
Packaging testing can help you ensure that your product arrives in a fit state for use!

Resonate Testing can help you gain the confidence that your product packaging will be resistant to structural or environmental damage during transit.
As an International Safe Transit Association (ISTA) Certified Test Laboratory, we can apply tests across the range of standard ISTA procedures.

Resonate Testing’s capabilities across dynamic and environmental testing mean we can incorporate diverse customer requirements in the field of packaging and transportation testing.
Our altitude test can simulate air freight. Our climatic and combined climatic with dynamic testing can be applied to simulate climate conditions in different parts of the world, as well as ageing and accelerated ageing tests. Tests for special product requirements can also be accommodated, for example cold chain temperature-controlled shipping systems.
