ISTA 6-Amazon.com Over-Boxing [ISTA 6-Series Performance Tests]

This ISTA 6-Series Performance Tests is general performance simulation for e-commerce fulfillment of packages. This testing differs from items ready to ship in their own packaging. This packaging holds a packaged product weighing 70 pounds or less in a shipping container either by itself or with packaging pillows (the bubble wrap type interior packaging you sometimes see). The test itself will show the ability of the e-commerce fulfillment over-boxing will work or not. How this is tested is by simulating damage-producing motions, forces, conditions, and environmental hazards.

Testing requirements will vary; an overview is available online at www.ista.org.
