H.B. Fuller recently announced that it is a certified member of the Amazon Packaging Support and Supplier (APASS) network. Amazon launched the APASS program in 2018 to support vendors, sellers, and manufacturers in certifying their products as Prep-Free Packaging (PFP), Ships-in-Own Container (SIOC), and Frustration-Free Packaging (FFP).
These certification guidelines for packaging reduce packing times, packaging waste, risk of damage, and difficult unboxing experiences. As a certified Amazon supplier, H.B. Fuller reports that it can support Amazon packaging suppliers in qualifying for all three tiers by meeting the APASS guidelines.
“As a member of the APASS network, we will be able to use our broad market experience to help companies implement e-commerce solutions that utilize adhesives and tapes,” said Tania Montesi, e-commerce business development manager. “We are committed to assisting customers in the creation of solutions that solve some of the biggest challenges in e-commerce packaging, including easy opening, closing and return applications. Our team offers innovative solutions in easy opening tapes, double-sided closing tapes, and end of line closing hot melt adhesives that make our APASS membership an important part of our growth in the e-commerce market.”
