The “International Safe Transit Association” (ISTA) is concerned with everything relating to tested transport packaging suitable for shipment. Based in the USA, this worldwide alliance of test laboratories, shippers and carriers has set itself the task of developing internationally recognised, easily understood test procedures that can be implemented worldwide.

As long as 60 years ago, ISTA developed the first programmes for packaging testing – a pioneering effort. A particularly valuable feature is that the test programmes are adapted to the individual type of shipment unit and are reproducible at all times.

These days, demand for ISTA tests is increasing in Europe as well. Especially for shipments to the USA, ISTA-tested packaging makes a very good impression.

Since 2010 our test laboratory has been one of the six ISTA-certified test laboratories in Germany.
