In the e-commerce marketplace, Great Northern is on a mission to help customers WIN. With that commitment, we are pleased to announce the addition of a new ISTA® 6 Testing Laboratory to Great Northern’s Appleton, WI packaging facility.
Here, our in-house certified ISTA (International Safe Transit Association) technicians can test and certify packages and fully loaded pallets to pre-determine if packages are optimally designed to withstand the rigors of the supply chain and if design modifications are needed. Our test equipment simulates drops, compression, impacts, and vibration. The rigorous testing will challenge package integrity, structure, and ability to withstand potential impacts and motions that could occur throughout the supply chain and delivery through the last mile.
When additional product protection is needed, Great Northern – Fiber Interior Packaging can be used to fit heavy, large or irregular-shaped items. Made to tailor-fit the contours of your product, it provides additional cushion and eliminates shifting during shipping and handling. Fiber Interior Packaging is also 100% recyclable and meets Amazon’s Certified Frustration-Free Packaging requirements.
