Existing packaging optimization

Achieve maximum cost-effectiveness

According to the Joint Industry Unsaleables Report, improper packaging is responsible for a 2% loss in companies’ net sales. This loss originates in incorrect assessment of packaging needs, frequently resulting in under or over-packaging.

Following a certified scientific methodology based on simulations and adapted to your environment, our laboratory experts determine the optimization point of your packaging process and implement the best solution.


Measurable Benefits

Advantages of addressing an under-packaging issue:

  • Fewer losses related to damaged merchandise or late delivery
  • Lower return shipping costs
  • Increased productivity and profitability
  • Guaranteed coverage of your merchandise by major carriers
  • Protected brand image

Advantages of addressing an over-packaging issue:

  • Considerable cost reductions
  • Increased productivity and profitability
  • Less waste of resources (packaging components, labour, energy, etc.)
  • Reduced carbon footprint (less waste generated)

ISTA-certified, stringent process

CARTIER’s laboratory uses specialized equipment to recreate your shipping (air, land or sea), storage and handling conditions to detect and help you address any packaging weaknesses.

Built according to International Safe Transit Association (ISTA)-certified test protocols, our laboratory faithfully recreates your merchandise packaging and shipping processes by simulating the actual conditions of your environment.

Using advanced simulation equipment, our laboratory can test the following parameters:

  • Vibration
  • Impact
  • Shock
  • Elasticity


This means that our recommendations are validated by a process that makes it easier to obtain coverage from major carriers, among many other benefits.
