Consumer Product Package Testing

Companies lose millions of dollars each year to product damaged during the shipping process due to poor packaging design. Performing transportation testing on packaging for consumer products can help eliminate some of the costs of replacing damaged goods. Distribution testing and shipping damage testing can help ensure that your consumer product packaging is not damaged throughout transportation of your goods.

DDL performs package and distribution testing for consumer product companies 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.

DDL Tests Consumer Product Packaging for Shipping Damage in the following markets:

  • 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.
