Amazon Frustration Free Packaging (FFP)

Smurfit Kappa EU is an official participant in the Amazon Packaging Support and Supplier Network (APASS)

The APASS program has been designed by Amazon to help support vendors, sellers and manufacturers in obtaining certification of their products as Frustration Free Packaging (FFP), Ships-in-Own-Container (SIOC) or Prep-Free Packaging (PFP).

The packaging initiative implemented by Amazon enhances the consumer experience by using recyclable boxes that are easy to open and free of excess materials such as hard plastic clamshell cases, plastic bindings, and wire ties. APASS also improves the environmental footprint of Amazon suppliers by reducing packaging waste and product damages due to the optimised packaging solutions.

Smurfit Kappa provides APASS services directly to vendors, sellers or manufacturers in compliance with Amazon’s certification requirements and guidelines.
