The APASS program was designed by Amazon to help support vendors, sellers and manufacturers to secure certification of their products as Frustration Free Packaging (FFP), Ships-in-Own-Container (SIOC) or Prep-Free Packaging (PFP).
“Online consumer packaged goods (CPG) sales continue to climb, yet many brands have not modified packaging designed for brick-and-mortar stores to withstand the rigors and multiple touchpoints of ecommerce distribution,” said Becky Donner, senior vice president, Marketing, Design & Engineering at TricorBraun. “As our customers’ one-stop-shop for award-winning packaging solutions, we are proud to add the APASS certification to our robust ecommerce packaging offerings.”
