Custom Postal Boxes

We manufacture a range of custom postal and mailing boxes (also known as FEFCO Style 0201 or 0204), providing an efficient protective packaging and storage solution for products during distribution.

Available in a variety of sizes and paper-based materials, our standard and custom mailing boxes are strong, durable and able to withstand the rigours of the final mile delivery.

Our postal and mailing boxes are FSC® certified, 100% recyclable and made from a renewable resource. These boxes are a great option for consumers as they can be recycled in the regular kerbside cardboard recycling system.

Mailing boxes can be assembled within seconds, providing packing efficiencies, and then sealed via regular or self-adhesive tapes or glues. Utilising various print finishes, boxes can be printed on both the inside and the outside, to include handling instructions, product/sustainability information or branding.

Also available Vegan Certified.

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.
