This document lists and details established and newer methodologies for vibration testing packaged
products for road distribution. It is intended to provide information on the range of methods
available. This information will be of interest to those who wish to review their specification and
selection of vibration test methods, and to those who wish to have a better understanding of the
ISTA Lane Data represents the most comprehensive thermal information about small parcel shipping. This large
data set can be used to create real world "what if" simulations of the performance of thermal packaging with
real instances. This paper presents a new method of evaluating this performance using a simple modeling
software tool that is now part of ISTA's package. Lane data can also now be sorted by "zip code to zip code"
information that yields parameters that are useful for estimating arrival temperatures in the payload. It is a
system for generating Cold Chain Strategies by creating performance expectations for packages and a way to
estimate outcomes when shipping from and to specific locations.
