OrCon is an ISTA-certified laboratory, so we are able to efficiently validate that our robust packaging solutions will thoroughly protect our clients’ products.
ISTA develops protocols for testing package performance in different environments for resisting climate conditions, shock, and vibration. These tests are suited to products packaged as individual units and are designed for common carrier shipments, such as shipment via USPS or FedEx.
ISTA testing can only be completed by certified laboratories that meet ISTA’s equipment standards and are recertified every two years to maintain ISTA’s high standards.
