Measurement and Analysis of Vibration Levels for Express Logistics Transportation 

PHD, Senior Engineer 
Shenzhen Polytechnic 

Trunk transportation and terminal distribution are two important parts of express delivery in China. Heavy truck and medium truck are two main vehicles of trunk transportation. Mini van and twowheel electric bicycle are widely used for terminal distribution. Four vehicles mentioned previously and a sedan car were chosen for vibration level measurement and analysis in this paper. The results revealed that vibration levels were significantly higher in the vertical axis, and decreased with the increase of payload, and increased with the increase of speed again. Similar power spectral density peak frequencies were found in a comparison study with previous results in the lowfrequency region (110 Hz), occurred at approximately 2 Hz in the van and sedan car and at 3 to 4 Hz in the truck and at 4 to 5 Hz in the twowheel electric bicycle. Except the twowheel electric bicycle, the second peak frequency occurred at approximately 20 to 30 Hz in the sedan car and at 10 to 20 Hz in the mini van and at 20 to 40 Hz in the heavy truck, which were also similar to the previous studies. Vibration levels of the sedan car were the lowest, and the trunk transportation vehicles (heavy truck, medium truck) were the highest. The terminal distribution vehicles (mini van, twowheel electric bicycle) were somewhere in the middle.
Optimum Scheme of Transport Packaging for Medical Devices 
Danni Hong 
Process Engineer 
Hangzhou Endonom Medtech Co.,Ltd 

Packaging is an important component of product, especially in Aseptic implantation Medical Devices. Once the sterile barrier system fails, the product will not be sold or used any more. There is no way to resell using re-packing. Therefore, before such products come into market, medical device manufacturers must analyze the risk caused by packaging system failure and effectively control the possible risks. Packaging verification process came into being, including transportation test. This practice provides a uniform basis of evaluating, in a laboratory, the ability of shipping units to withstand the distribution environment. Due to the particularity of the products, the optimization scheme of transportation packaging has become an important topic.

The Effect of Aluminum Foil on the Overall Thermal Insulation of a Shipping Package 
Changfeng Ge 
Professor Dr.-Ing. 
Department of Packaging Science, Rochester Institute of Technology 
Rochester Institute of Technology 

Aluminum foil is a heat reflective material for thermal insulation. How to effectively apply Aluminum foil in the thermally insulated container, such as the locations of the foil and the amount of the foil used, is of interest for packaging engineer. Six( 6) configurations of aluminum foil in insulated product packaging were developed in this study.  Under ISTA 7D 48-hour summer profile, data loggers were used to measure the relationship between temperature on the packed product and time for the above six (6) structure.  The results were compared and reported in this presentation.

Multi-Axis Vibration-Progress Update 

David Jin 
Director, APAC

In 2014, Lansmont performed some research to compare the response of products undergoing both single and multi-degree of freedom (MDOF) vibration inputs. That research clearly demonstrated product responses were more realistic when using MDOF testing inputs. The results of that research were presented at many different ISTA events over the next couple of years. Since that time, MDOF research and testing efforts have continued and this presentation will provide a summary of those activities.

Load  Stability Simulation of Horizontal Accelerations at the Laboratory Versus Real Events 
Alberto Tellechea 
Safe Load Testing Technologies 

Regarding the increasing interest of transport authorities and the science community about the load stability during transportation and its right simulation at laboratory, several studies have been done and published.  
One of the theoretical studies presented at IAPRI 2019, with the title 'Emergency braking and Stability testing, Response Analysis' showed why the horizontal natural frequency of the unit load it is determinant for the response level of the unit load subjected to that acceleration curve.  
In that study was demonstrated that a maximum of 200 ms time jerk duration to get the steady acceleration following by a minimum of 300ms time dwell duration of a trapezoidal pulse it is required to get exactly the same response as produced in a real emergency braking for unit loads of horizontal natural frequency greater than 1.2 Hz. Because It's hard to understand how a test shortest than 1s can simulate the effect of a real braking of the same intensity which can hold several seconds, we have undertaken a new practical study using a real unit load inside a vehicle.  
This unit load has been monitored with high speed cameras and other devices to measure the real deformation and accelerations that this unit load is going to reach during the transportation acceleration events. This deformation has been compared with the deformation produced on the unit load simulating the real acceleration event with different dwell durations in the laboratory using a horizontal stability machine, in order to visualize the low deviation that we obtain from real world versus simulation in the laboratory.

In a new plastics economy, plastic never becomes waste or pollution. The Global Commitment draws a line in the sand in the fight against plastic waste and pollution. The Plastics Pact brings together all key stakeholders at the national or regional level to implement solutions towards a circular economy for plastics. Each initiative has a concrete set of ambitious local targets. In the global transportation market we have seen many innovations, from delivery model and product format to packaging design, etc, to reduce the use of plastic packaging under the principle of circular economy. The presentation will introduce the new trend and some of the best practices and cases.
