E-Commerce Package Testing

As e-commerce continues to grow, packaging continues to play an increasingly important role in the customer experience. E-Commerce packaging testing methods and solutions protect shipments across a wide range of industries and products, including Consumer Goods, Biotechnology Companies, HVAC Systems, Pharmaceutical Research, and more. Advancements in thermal packaging solutions, such as temperature assurance packaging, are designed to safely transport temperature sensitive products, including pharmaceuticals like flu vaccines, blood plasma, and other biological products.

What is E-Commerce Package Testing?

E-Commerce has evolved and risen significantly, presenting online retailers with new challenges as their packaged products are transported to their end destination. Package testing and validation protocols are critical to identifying weaknesses, addressing supply chain issues, and reducing damages incurred through transit. Whether products are sold directly to the consumer or through a third party platform or vendor, identifying and simulating the shipping environment hazards products face en route to the customer can ensure that the appropriate packaging is in place to withstand the demands faced in distribution.

How To Test Your Packaged Product By E-Commerce Testing Protocol

The International Safe Transit Association (ISTA) is a members led organization committed to creating a world-class data repository to better model distribution locally, nationally, and internationally. Developing procedures and protocols, according to which packaged products are tested and validated, ISTA is revered as the certification standard for package testing for distribution. ISTA’s Testing Protocol remains a series of testing methodologies well recognized within the packaging community, including prominent e-commerce retailer Amazon.com.

E-Commerce Packaging Design

Package design that meets the certification requirements of E-Commerce and Amazon Packaging Certification is critical to protecting against damage, reducing or mitigating waste, and improving a package’s overall cosmetic appearance. Packaging construction, markings, and ID label markings can also be designed for custom packaging shipping units. Considerations for evaluating and optimizing over-sized products against E-Commerce and Amazon network standards should also be taken into account when testing and validating packaged products for distribution.
