For online retailers and packaging manufacturers, ISTA 6-Amazon.com testing is critical to meeting customer expectations and reducing damage. Our ISTA and APASS certified labs can help you meet requirements for over boxing, SIOC, and Frustration-Free Packaging (FFP).
ISTA 6 testing is required for most ground and LTL packages shipped via Amazon. Depending on the product category, the type of packaging used, and whether an item is warehoused or drop-shipped, one of two major test methods must be used: overboxing and Ships in Own Container (SIOC).
Our container and package testing experts can help you understand the criteria for your products and choose the method that makes most sense for you.
