Packaging Tips and Solutions for Your Business

It’s important to consider packaging as part of your e-commerce strategy, since it’s an extension of your brand. Your products should be protected, kept safe during shipping, and make a good first impression when they arrive at your customer’s doorstep.

*Some restrictions apply. You can submit up to four packages for testing per two-week cycle. The FedEx Packaging Lab will perform basic distribution testing (ISTA 6-FedEx-A, ISTA 6-FedEx-B, and ISTA 3B tests) at no charge. You simply cover the cost of shipping your test package to the FedEx Packaging Lab. Please note that these services are available in English only.
