Tertiary Packages

Tertiary Package exampleTertiary Packages are those that bundle a number of secondary packages together and are often referred to as a shipping container. Some of the primary functions of tertiary packaging include: bundling for convenience in handling, identification of the contents, containment of the secondary packaging, impact and vibration resistance from the distribution environment forces, top load compression strength to allow for stacking in storage and distribution, and similar. As was the case with the secondary packaging, testing procedures for tertiary packaging are likewise varied and diverse depended largely on the requirements necessary for that particular application. Westpak can provide the testing necessary either using standard procedures or customized test protocols as the case may dictate. Facilities and trained personnel are available for nearly any type of package test application.
