Package performance tests
Distribution simulation testing helps predict performance of a package. The following are examples of common tests intended to simulate real-world hazards in the laboratory.
ASTM D642: Standard Test Method for Determining Compressive Resistance of Shipping Containers, Components, and Unit Loads
ASTM D4169: Standard Practice for Performance Testing of Shipping Containers and Systems
ISTA General Simulation Performance Tests, Including:
- 3A: Packaged-Products for Parcel Delivery System Shipment
- 3E: Unitized Loads of Same Product
