ISTA 6 Type G

Amazon Type G is for individually packaged TV’s and monitors that are less than 150 pounds (68 kg) with a girth less than 165 inches (4.19 m). The shipping method for these products is parcel delivery and uses the standard handling method. The standard handling method, also referenced as floor loaded, is for individual packaged-products that are received at an Fulfillment Center with no pallet or with multiple packaged products on a single pallet and are intended to ship to the end consumer without a pallet. Type G products qualify for SIOC status and are tested based on the ISTA 6 SIOC Type G test sequence outlined below. It is important to keep in mind that TVs and monitors are considered non-fragile products thus only one sample is used for testing. 

Keystone Package Testing provides vendors with the testing to certify their TV’s and monitors to receive the benefits of Amazon’s SIOC status. With significant package testing knowledge, globally-recognized accreditation, short lead times and affordable prices, Keystone Package Testing is the best Amazon package testing partner.
