Shipping products through an e-commerce supply chain has additional hazards and challenges in comparison to shipping on a pallet. These additional hazards have a higher likelihood of damaging products due to the nature of manual handling. We have the expertise to create optimized e-commerce packaging solutions for a large variety of globally sourced products.
There are existing generic testing protocols that somewhat represent what actually happens during shipping but our preference is to utilize our custom testing protocol process. As outlined here on our custom transit testing service page.
