Our specialists at Projekt Elektronik are familiar with the provisions of IATA 953 in detail, can reliably carry out the necessary measurements to ensure compliance with the limit values ​​on the packages and propose solutions if limit values ​​are exceeded.

You will receive a detailed test report with an evaluation of the measurement results and – if necessary – our shipping recommendations. A modified packaging has often proven to be a practical and inexpensive solution to comply with the provisions of IATA 953. Benefit from our practical experience.

For an offer and the test order we need the following information from you

  • Type and number of packages (e.g. carton, pallet, wooden box, metal box)
  • the approximate dimensions of the packages
  • the approximate weight of the packages
  • A photo if possible, especially for larger packages such as pallets
