US packaging and logistics services provider Veritiv has officially joined the Amazon Packaging Support and Supplier Network (APASS) to provide package-testing services directly to sellers, merchants, and manufacturers.

The company is required to provide the testing services in compliance with Amazon’s certified test methods.

Using the APASS, which was created by Amazon, sellers, merchants, and manufacturers can get their products certified as Frustration-Free Packaging (FFP), Ships-in-Own-Container (SIOC), and Prep-Free Packaging (PFP).

Veritiv will provide its package design, testing, material analysis, and international sourcing capabilities to sellers in the APASS programme.

The company will also assist sellers in designing innovative yet functional packaging that will lead to efficiencies through lower damage and improved material sourcing.

““We are pleased to be part of a program where we can leverage our expertise and networks to provide Amazon vendors with quality, sustainable packaging.”

Veritiv Sourcing and Product Management director Matt Reddington said: “We are pleased to be part of a program where we can leverage our expertise and networks to provide Amazon vendors with quality, sustainable packaging that not only supports the arrival of their products intact and undamaged, but gives their customers a good unpacking experience.”
