Mondi Performance Lab

We perform ISTA standardised tests to ensure that your packaging is suitable for your product and protects it in your specific supply chain.

Zero loss

No product breakage

Testing of your pack (product and packaging) eliminates the risk of product breakage and claims and thus reduces costs, reputational damage and the overall C02 footprint. You also benefit from the certainty of packaging that meets your business partners’ and carriers’ requirements. Data-based evaluation of performance tests gives a clear understanding of how your packaging or product copes with different types of distress. It also aids rapid problem-solving by helping to pinpoint any performance deficits or weak points of a design.


Amazon-approved testing

In order to provide the best possible support with e-commerce sales channels as well, the Mondi ISTA laboratory is also an Amazon-approved member of APASS, the Amazon Packaging Support and Supplier Network. This makes our laboratory a partner of choice for testing Amazon’s Tier 1-3 compliant packaging (FFP, SIOC and PFP), a market standard of the online marketplace to reduce packaging volume in eCommerce logistics.
