Custom Transit Testing
The innovative transit testing that BoldtSmith Packaging uses gives our engineers definitive evidence of the way a package is handled as it goes through the rigors of the supply chain.
We review how the packaging was tested prior to launch, and evaluate whether it is representative of what actually happens during shipping. A tracer is placed inside a test package to track, measure and record every step of your product’s journey--from the time the manufacturer ships to the final destination at a retail store or distribution center.
When we open the package and read the tracker, we can quantify where it has changed hands, temperature conditions during storage, how often it may have been dropped and the extent of product shift inside the carton.This precise data from the measuring device is used by us to further optimize the external and internal package design to prevent costly product damage.
Savings can also be achieved by meeting a retailer’s regulations, thereby avoiding non-compliance fees.We have solid experience working with Home Depot and Walmart, among others, so we choose the testing protocol that is preferred for each type of packaging delivery.
