ISTA Testing

Quest Engineering Solutions is certified by the International Safe Transit Association (ISTA) to perform package testing per the standard.

ISTA is an organization focused on the specific concerns of transport packaging and whose mission is to develop and deliver standards, educational programs and tools for the economic, social, and environmental optimization of packaging systems. ISTA testing is a well defined shipping testing procedure designed to verify that your packaging is sufficient to protect your product during all shipping environments.

We test packaging of all sizes, and have various sized chambers ranging from 1 cubic foot to full sized walk-in chambers with over 1,000 cubic feet, all of which are capable of performing environmental testing per the ISTA standard.
