Consumer Product Package Testing

DDL performs shipping damage testing for consumer product companies that are looking to prevent damage that occurs to products due to poor packaging. Whether you are shipping point-of-purchase displays for consumer products or shipments that rely on packaging to protect your product, DDL can help determine the end result through transportation testing.

Distribution testing and shipping damage testing can help ensure that your consumer product packaging is not damaged throughout transportation of your goods. Companies lose millions of dollars of product per year due to poor packaging design that wasn’t properly tested for shipping damage.

Performing transportation testing on packaging for consumer products can help eliminate some of the costs of replacing damaged goods that companies face.

  • Point-of-purchase displays/store product displays
  • High value electronic equipment
  • Fragile goods that require careful handling
  • Food packaging
  • Small appliances
  • Temperature controlled packaging for food shipping

DDL offers fast reporting for the results of your test. We will provide you with a written report, as well as images documenting the results of your transportation testing.
