  • 14. Single Parcel Shipping Environment Over 30 major studies completed with major carriers for US and Europe There is a continuous need to quantify what happens to these packages as they are handled both manually during collection and delivery and on large high speed conveying and sortation equipment at hubs. The dynamic events during these moves can cause damage. The information collected for the hazards experienced in route by the packages is useful in designing protective packaging.
  • 15. Single Parcel Shipping Environment Comparison Study Objectives: To characterize the dynamics of the second-day air express environment for small (7.75” × 7” × 5.75”) and lightweight packages (less than 5.5 lb) shipped by USPS, UPS, FedEx and DHL within the US. To provide recommended test levels for drop testing packages of this size and weight for the single parcel shipping environment.
