Transport simulation and climate testing of packaging and palletised items

A transport simulation mimics a real transport under standardized conditions. So, the repeatability and comparability of the tests are warranted; in this way test comparisons and repetitions can be done at any time and place. A transport simulation consists of a number of different tests, which of...
