International Safe Transit Association



ISTA's 2019 Forum brings together the packaging community through two co-located events, TransPack and TempPack.

TransPack provides a balance of valuable presentations, case studies, research and solutions from world-leading experts surrounding the optimization of packaging for transport.

TempPack focuses on technical topics related to global temperature controlled performance packaging. The TempPack Forum creates an opportunity for presenters to share their insights, challenges, case studies and research having a direct impact on the industry.

Both programs are designed to create opportunities for you to network with like-minded professionals who are facing the same challenges in all different sectors and verticals. You can expect to build new relationships and create resources with people centered on the transport packaging industry.

ISTA is interested in topics related to but not necessarily limited to the following for our programs:

TransPack Forum:
- Packaging Performance Testing Applications and Research
- Challenges of Protective Package Design
- Quality Assurance and Validation Best Practices
- Damage Reduction Success Stories
- e-Commerce Packaging
