We Test Product Packages
At 4D Testing Solutions, Inc., we are your solution for product packaging tests. The shipping and handling environment can be tough on your products, so you’ll need packaging that protects your goods without damaging your profit margin. Overpackaging can be costly and a lot of work, we provide the testing, consultation, and solutions you need.
Distribution Testing – often referred to as Ship Testing – is the practice of conducting a series of tests on a packaging system to simulate the potential hazards that are likely to be encountered in shipping and distribution. Laboratory testing provides repeatable procedures in a controlled environment. These testing procedures can reveal any areas of potential damage that may be endured by the product, as well as the necessary protective properties of the packaging.
These package testing evaluations are accomplished by subjecting products in their packaging through a variety of tests such as compression, inclined impacts, vibration, drops, environmental conditioning, as well as forklift and mechanical handling techniques.

Cutting-Edge Testing Laboratory and Advanced Equipment
We offer complete distribution testing services, and we have the experience and tools you need for the job. Our lab is outfitted with a variety of equipment and methods for all types of package testing. If you have any details of your product or packaging that concerns you about its performance and there may not be a test applicable to that exact dynamic, we can help create a repeatable way to evaluate that area to define your benchmark on packaging protection performance.
This allows us to replicate distribution and handling hazards. ISTA Guidelines are useful in determining the correct test to simulate your distribution cycle. We test using vibration (evaluating abrasion, stacked units in transit, properly cushioned, braced, and secure loads) using a servo-hydraulic vibration table. Using this equipment, we simulate air, sea, truck, or rail vibration effects, to determine if your product will be damaged in transit. We also perform drop testing, ensuring that your package can handle rough, sudden, unforeseen impacts of any height that product may be dropped from. We’re also equipped to test for compression durability, mechanical handling (withstanding rail switching, freight container crane handling, rotational drops or tip-over impact), and repetitive shock vibration.
We hold ourselves to the highest standard of service and quality. We are proud to say we are the ONLY woman-owned package-testing lab in the United States. For this reason, we are honored to be a part of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), and Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB).
