Preview Demo Event

To design packaging responsibly, minimize product damage, and achieve sustainability goals, it's crucial to understand your supply chains and distribution cycles.

ISTA Digital offers innovative tools empowering members to bring transparency to their distribution chains.

Understanding the Distribution Chain

To responsibly design and optimize packaging, you must truly understand your supply chains & distribution cycles.

You must understand the challenges they present to your packaged products while they are in transit to your customers.

You must understand how your packaged products perform within those environments.

ISTA Digital is a new cloud application focusing on data collection, collaboration, and packaging design.

Tailored for ISTA members, ISTA Digital introduces exciting new tools to streamline packaging design, development, and testing, while emphasizing damage reduction and goals for sustainability.

ISTA Digital not only enhances collaboration and knowledge-sharing but also empowers members to bring transparency to their distribution chains.
