Swedish pulp and paper manufacturer BillerudKorsnäs has announced it will participate in the Amazon Packaging Support and Supplier (APASS) network programme.

The APASS programme offers packaging advice to vendors and helps to meet the company’s packaging guidelines.

As a member of the APASS team, BillerudKorsnäs can ensure that its packaging solutions meet Amazon’s Frustration-Free Packaging (FFP) programme’s requirements.

The company will also have to produce solutions that are Frustration-Free Packaging (FFP), Ships-In-Own-Container (SIOC) and Prep-Free Packaging (PFP)-certified.

BillerudKorsnäs Portland packaging design & engineering team manager Tim Stone said: “We are delighted to join the APASS network and help companies that sell through Amazon such as apparel, footwear, sporting goods, appliance and electronics manufacturers optimise their e-commerce packaging for Amazon fulfilment.

“Our experienced teams are skilled at developing packaging solutions that help our clients protect their products, reduce waste and lower costs while improving the customer experience.”
