Sustainable Package Testing

DDL's Responsible Packaging Development Group™ can assist on a consulting basis with the following steps toward achieving your level of sustainability; Initial Package Design, material selection for optimal source reduction, package design testing for evaluation of optimization of material strength and performance and confirmation of effective cost reduction.

Designing packaging that is responsible, yet still maintains the protective function it serves for the product, is becoming a more common goal in consumer packaging design. Many experts in the industry will talk about the importance of sustainability in packaging without considering the potential unintended consequences that could arise if the package is not designed appropriately.

DDL has been conducting distribution simulation testing on packages for more than 20 years.  We have a strong understanding of the distribution environment and the conditions that your package goes through during the transportation process.  If you're looking to achieve material source reduction for your sustainable package, DDL is here to help consult on your responsible package design, as well as to test the results of your sustainable package to ensure it complies with all industry standards and regulations.  Our single source, totally integrated approach enables globally recognized corporations to maximize product performance, reliability, compliance and safety while also achieving their sustainability goals.
