E-Commerce Effect

Andrew J. Gruber
President
ISTA (International Safe Transit Association)

 

The retail supply chain is changing and packaging engineers are facing new challenges at every twist and turn. As many are aware, the move to “omni-channel” retail supply chains is driving this change. The rapid and continuing rise of ecommerce has eliminated the barrier between consumers and transport packaging. Now brands must adapt to keep their customers loyal. This webinar will look at the transformation that’s taken place, what it means for transport packaging, and what the industry is doing to develop tools packaging professionals can use to optimize packaging for an “omni-channel” world.

Evaluation and Standardization of Temperature Controlled Product Packaging

Jongkyoung Kim
Chair, ISTA Asia-Pacific Division Leader
Oversea Business Team, Korea Conformity Laboratories

 

Standardization is a crucial element to improve efficiency of temperature controlled supply chain and can be the first step for efficient and seamless temperature controlled supply chain. Standards such as terminology, dimensions, performance requirements, and testing methods enable a company’s temperature controlled supply chain integration. Standardized packaging operation system facilitates the supply chain automation, increases efficiency of inventory control, and reduces total logistics costs. Global standardization of temperature controlled transport packaging can help a company to make easy to invest their packaging system while facilitating smooth and integrated supply chain interfaces from suppliers to customers. In addition, various and standardized testing methods should help international trades and local businesses in cold chain industry.

Takeaways: Current and future standardization activities and submitted new work items on temperature controlled shipping containers being used in many industries such as pharmaceutical, medical device, biotech and food companies, not only for short distribution but for global trade. Many factors affecting the effectiveness of the package such as insulation of the exterior package, the energy source, and the product payload should be discussed.

Transport Hazards and Acceleration Data Taken from Experiments

Masahiro Takagi
Founder & CEO
eXcearch Corporation

 

Packages experience various hazards during transportation. There are known hazards which potentially cause damage to the product but practical information (that is, acceleration data) is not easily available. eXcearch has been involved with many projects experimenting the hazardous events during shipping which includes airport handling, truck/trailer transportation, etc. In this presentation, I would like to summarize the studies and share with attendees practical information obtained from the projects.

Takeaways: Knowledge about transport hazards and their practical acceleration data that can be applied to attendees’ packaging evaluation tests.

Biography: Education: B.E. in Communication Engineering, Tokai University. Professional Activities: ISTA Technical Board. ISTA Asia Pacific Division Board. Member of Japan Packaging Institute. Member of the Society of Packaging Science & Technology Japan. Member of ASTM International D10 Packaging. Convenor of ISO/TC122/SC3/WG10 (ISO 4180).

 


Over-the-Road Load Shift Investigative Case Study

Eric Joneson
Vice President, Marketing
Lansmont Corporation

 

A major brand owner was receiving feedback from their distribution facilities of abnormally high amounts of “dumped” loads upon arrival from their production facility. Dumped loads meant unit loads that completely tipped over during transport. This presentation will highlight some of the interesting investigative work that was initiated to determine whether abnormal dynamics were occurring during transport between the production facility and two specific distributors.

Takeaway:
• Effectiveness of playback video with audio, varying playback speeds to provide awareness of vibration variability during transport.
• Effects of normal braking on heavy unit loads.
• Impacts on material handling system due to improperly wrapped unit loads.

Vibration Characterization for Drone Small Parcel Delivery

Beng Yang Ong
Business Line Manager
TÜV SÜD PSB Pte Ltd, Singapore

 

Drones can be used for small parcel delivery to inaccessible areas. This has useful applications from daily postal task such as transporting letters/mails from city to islands, to mission critical situations where important medical supplies can be transported via air to unexpected places which may be inaccessible due to remote locations or heavy traffic. Therefore, vibration sensitive parts, especially electronics and medical suppliers that would be transported using drones would require special attention to be paid on vibration reduction strategy through proper packaging design.Takeaways: Gain ideas on how to conduct measurement studies efficiently.

Vibration Testing – Sine vs. Random

Ryan Becker
International Sales Engineer
Vibration Research

With vibration testing, there are many different test types that can be used to create a test. Two of the most common are sine and random. A common question is often asked: which of these two test types should be run on their product? When presented with both sine and random testing, is it possible to determine which test is most severe? If the goal of a test is to quickly pinpoint flaws in a product and I can only run 1 test, which test should I run? This presentation will attempt to answer these questions as well as which test is more severe, sine or random vibration.

Practical and actionable takeaways from the presentation:
1. Determine if a sine test or a random test should be run on a product. 2. Determine which test is more severe. 3. Determine which test will more quickly and accurately pinpoint flaws.
