TricorBraun Joins Amazon's Packaging Support and Supplier Network (APASS) Program
Oak Brook, Ill., November 7, 2019 – Global packaging leader TricorBraun today announced its certification in Amazon’s Packaging Support and Supplier Network (APASS) program. TricorBraun is an official provider of packaging design, supply and testing services in compliance with Amazon’s guidelines and certification test methods.
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.”
