Case Study I:
Company A came to us with a proposed corrugated case destined to
be used for Dangerous Goods. Although the design was acceptable, it suffered
from a deficiency in water resistance of the outside linerboard. NATS was able
to suggest an alternative source, whose successful substitution led to the
packaging being granted a registration number by Transport Canada.
Case Study II:
Company B submitted a tiered pallet stacking design for a
heavyweight product. Through controlled laboratory testing, NATS was able to
determine the most effective construction in terms of both performance and cost.
In this fashion, we can prevent both over- and under-packaging.
Case Study III:
Company C presented NATS with a complex display that involved
numerous hooks, tiers, and shrouds. The end-user wanted the display to be
shipped "ready-for-retail", without having to mount the product on the
display shelves himself. Through careful targeted testing, we were able to
simulate transportation to the final customer and work with the client to ensure
the display was properly designed and protected.
