Transport testing according to ASTM D4169

The laboratory at RISE Packaging Science Centre is certified by ISTA and is one of the most well equipped and advanced laboratories in all of Scandinavia. We specialize in simulating various transport conditions according to international standards to ensure that your packaging protects the product all the way through its distribution cycle.


Transport tests not only ensure that your packaging protects the products that it holds but also that it can live up to the various exacting demands during a part or the entirety of the transport cycle.

To optimize the packaging for cost, choice of material, amount of material etc.



A complete transport test simulates the entire distribution cycle from the manufacturer to the end user and various standard tests can be carried out to simulate parts or whole of the transport cycle. Depending on the kind of packaging you have and its distribution chain, we offer the following tests to evaluate your packaging.

Climate tests

Drop tests

Compression/Vehicle stacking

Vibration tests

Horizontal impact tests


Report of results along with detailed test protocol.
