Awareness and Emphasis of Load Stability and Related Test Methodologies
Large packaged products and unitized loads often experience mechanical
handling and transport vehicle dynamics such as cornering and braking
which can affect the load stability during distribution. In recent
years more attention has been focused on load stability, in part due
to sustainable packaging initiatives, which promote the use of less
structural packaging materials. Simultaneously, regulatory requirements
in places such as Europe and the United States, require a specific
level of proven packaging performance as it relates to load stability
dynamics. This presentation will highlight the sources of these environmental
hazards, address some of the regulatory requirements, and provide
examples of how laboratory personnel attempt to simulate those dynamics
in an effort to establish packaged-product performance. The presentation
will also highlight ISTA's intentions to address this increased load
stability awareness, as their Testing Council continues to investigate
the addition of specific, stability-related testing inputs in their
various Test Series (1, 2, 3, etc.).
We are pleased to announce that ISTA will be holding the 2014 TransPack Forum next April 22-25, 2014 at Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts in Orlando, Florida. Be sure to mark it on your calendars and include it in your budgets. New to the Forum program this year is a special sustainability segment where attendees will hear first hand the latest news and trends from the executives of the leading associations involved in packaging sustainability issues. This session will also include a panel discussion.

The TransPack Forum is the most well attended educational event providing the latest ideas and advancements of responsible transport packaging and the physical distribution of products. The international educational and networking advantages are superior!
The Forum provides attendees with quality presentations and valuable case studies from world-leading experts along with opportunities to interact with industry peers to discuss critical issues, share solutions, gain ideas and ultimately become a more knowledgeable packaging professional. It has been developed for the seasoned professional or the newcomer and is the largest dedicated event for packaging and distribution professionals working in all areas of the industry.
The TransPack Forum is a great place to connect and network. The program is solid with packaging experts from around the world, and yes, you will walk away enlightened and definitely smarter but don’t underestimate the value of hallway conversations and informal exchanges you'll experience. The Forum is your best source for the recommendations you need and to learn new ways of doing business that apply to your world. The Forum brings us together and the Forum keeps us together.
