On an average USPS, FedEx and UPS ship about 12 million packages daily. According to a recently published StellaService Study, the three shippers average a damaged package rate of 9% which is slightly higher than the industry average of 5 %. This high rate will have a negative impact on the brand, forcing customers to look at other options when it comes to selecting a shipping and transportation vendor.
Protect your brand and your customer’s brand through first-rate package and material testing.
At Advanced Packaging Technology Laboratories our goal is to protect our customers’ reputation by minimizing their exposure to risks and maximizing their package performance. We work with manufactures and packaging design professionals to predetermine the probability of a package arriving to its final destination safely. Our team of engineers and technicians are well-versed in hazardous and non-hazardous shipping regulations and walk customers through every step of the process.
Food, pharmaceuticals and medical devices have shipping standards that are regulated through the Food and Drug Administration. The shipping of hazardous materials are regulated by the Department of Transportation. There are also an abundance of products that have unregulated shipping standards. Often the decision to have unregulated product packaging tested comes down to cost. In the end, the upfront cost of package testing will not only save you the revenue loss of product returns but will also save your relationship with your customer.
At Advanced Packaging Technology Laboratories, we want to help you protect the brand that you have worked so hard to build by delivering the packaging solution to fit your needs.
