Amazon ISTA 6-Series Testing
The AMAZON ISTA 6 standards were developed by ISTA in cooperation with Amazon.com to evaluate individual packages. Project 6-AMAZON.COM is a general simulation test for “Ships In Own Container” (SIOC) packaged-products shipped through Amazon’s distribution system to final customer destinations.
This test is for packaged-products shipped by Vendors to Amazon.com Fulfillment Centers and delivered to final customer destinations via Parcel or Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) outbound shipment methods.
Amazon.com Vendors are encouraged to use this test to understand the protective performance of their packaging.
The packages were subdivided in six types:
- Type A: Individually packaged products less than 50 lbs and less than 165" in girth.
- Type B: Individually packaged products from 50 lbs to 100 lbs and less than 165" in girth.
- Type C: Individually packaged products greater than 100 lbs and less than 165" in girth.
- Type D: LTL delivery of individually packaged products less than 100 lbs or girth greater than 165"
- Type E: LTL delivery of individually packaged products greater than 100 lbs or girth greater than 165"
- Type F: LTL delivery of individually packaged products using the Pallet Handling Method
