ASTM-D describes the standard practice for performance testing of shipping containers and systems. It provides a guide for the evaluation of shipping units in accordance with a uniform system, using established test methods at levels representative of those occurring in actual distribution. The tests should be performed sequentially on the same containers in the order given. For use as a performance test, this practice requires that the shipping unit tested remain unopened until the sequence of tests are completed. If used for other purposes, such as package development, it may be useful to open and inspect shipping units at various times throughout the sequence. This may, however, prohibit evaluating the influence of the container closure on container performance.

Complementary Documents and Links:. This practice provides a uniform basis of evaluating, in a laboratory, the ability of shipping units to withstand the distribution environment.
This is accomplished by subjecting them to a test plan consisting of a sequence of anticipated hazard elements encountered in various distribution cycles.
This practice is not intended to supplant material specifications or existing preshipment test procedures. Consider the use of Practice D for testing of packages for single parcel shipments.
The suitability of this practice for use with hazardous materials has not been determined. The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This may, however, prohibit evaluating the influence of the container closure on container performance.
When evaluating the resistance of packages and containers filled with goods, there are different standards that can be used to test their performance under real conditions. One of the most widespread tests in this regard is called ASTM D, which is considered to be the common practice in the field of container and shipping system performance tests. In this article we will discuss this standard and explain how you can comply with its requirements. ASTM D is a practice that provides a uniform base to evaluate in a laboratory the ability that shipping units have to withstand the shipping environment. To this end, loads are subjected to specific hazards that may arise during the various distribution cycles , in order to learn about their behavior in the face of specific situations and correct potential problems as a result.
