Package testing and unit load system securement in a certified test laboratory
Preventing transport damage with expert package testing
Do you want packaging which gives your products optimum protection from external forces? So do we. This is why we use transport simulations based on scientifically-recognized standards for packaging testing in our certified DUO LAB Technology Centre. Our in-house testing evaluates accelerations, braking, cornering, uneven surfaces and loading during transport. In addition to this are the factors affecting the material during the handling process. Another feature of our testing system is the simulation of various environmental conditions. Contact us if you’d like to find the best packaging and pallet securement for your distribution operation, or if you have already experienced problems during the logistics process. Together, we’ll find the ideal solution to ensure your product arrives safely.

Packaging optimization: analysis of the package and the logistics process
Packaging is as individual as the product inside the package. The same applies to distribution channels. Only expert analysis of all factors in the system enables the development of individual packaging solutions which not only protect the product, but are also efficient from a cost and sustainability perspective. Our DUO LAB Technology Centre can draw on the expert knowledge of freight forwarders, distributors, technical experts, logistics centres and testing institutes. And we place all this know-how at the disposal of your company. Aided by state-of-the-art testing systems, we will create and evaluate complete loading and transport securement concepts for you.
Procedures provided by our laboratory for package testing and package design optimization
Our transport simulation tests the packaging of individual products and shipping units using the following test methods:
- Horizontal acceleration
- Vertical influences
- Pitch and roll testing
- Environmental conditioning
- Manual handling
- GPS data recorder
Package testing services for cost-effective product packaging solutions
The test parameters are derived from the requirements for the packaged products, the packaging process and securement of the unit loads. Taking the individual and legal requirements into account, a combination of these parameters form the specific loads which may occur during packaging, storage and transport.
Package testing in the DUO LAB – based on strict scientific standards – guarantees you valid results and conclusions for the development of a cost-effective packaging design. We look forward to testing, analysing, simulating and optimizing your packaging and distribution system with you.
Only accredited laboratories can ensure reliable results and conclusions for package testing and unit load securement
The DUO LAB Technology Centre is officially accredited for package testing by the German accreditation body DAkkS (PL-19044). Our accreditation to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018 means our product testing is according to nationally and internationally-recognized standards, that we adhere to standardized scientific processes, and that our testing is supervised by the government. This means we are also authorized to issue officially-recognized certificates and test protocols. So DUO LAB is not only able to offer its customers valid test results for optimizing packaging processes, but also documents which will stand up in a court of law. Benefit from the expertise available from DUO LAB, one of the few independent packaging testing laboratories in the field of transport simulation, handling and temperature testing.
