This procedure has been designed to provide a standard set of tests to simulate e-commerce shipments containing individual retail pre-packaged products placed in a master shipping container, or over box. The test is used to evaluate the ability of the primary or secondary packaging to withstand damage from forces and other environmental conditions.
Packages will be subjected to a series of tests in accordance with the procedure. Tests may include:
Types of packaging tested under this method
