SINCE 1948, ISTA HAS BEEN DEVELOPING TEST PROTOCOLS TO ENSURE PRODUCTS SURVIVE THE RISKY AND HAZARDOUS GLOBAL DISTRIBUTION MARKET.

The risk of damage is present in every supply chain, but transportation hazards are predictable, and damage can be prevented.

ISTA provides solutions for engineering packaging that meet the demand of their supply chain at the lowest cost and with the smallest environmental footprint. The proven creditability of ISTA test protocols and design standards provide the confidence needed in managing risk and lowering cost, while optimising your supply chain.

Through the collection and development of this important data the ISTA testing protocols offer a level of assurance and set a standard for manufacturers, distributors, and testing laboratories worldwide. With international input and a consensus-based approach, ISTA’s testing protocols and design standards define how packages should perform in transit.

ISTA MEMBERS

ISTA anticipates the needs of tomorrow for our global member base that includes:

  • product manufactures
  • packaging suppliers
  • package carriers
  • testing laboratories
  • research & academic institutions

An advantage to ISTA’s shipping members is

  • the use of the ISTA® Transit Tested Certification Mark
  • the presence of the certification mark, which signifies that a package has passed pre-shipment laboratory testing and that ISTA has reviewed the results of the test report and certified the packaged product for safe transit within specified damage limits

ISTA® CERTIFICATION MARK BENEFITS

  • Provides visible proof that a package conforms to an established test standard and recognition by all parties that requirements have been met.
  • Provides assurance that the package is adequately protected against shock, vibration, compression and/or atmospheric hazards in the distribution environment when the appropriate procedure is utilised.
  • Reduces or eliminates the need for multiple trial shipments and gets new products to market faster while assuring their survival.
  • Strengthens your company’s position in claims negotiations as it establishes the adequacy of the package.
  • Assures greater customer satisfaction and enhances your reputation because your products arrive in optimal condition.
