Crownhill joins the Amazon Packaging Support and Supplier Network (APASS)

By May 15, 2019 News No Comments

We are honored and excited to be part of the APASS network developed by Amazon to  support Amazon vendors and sellers in certifying their products under Amazon’s Frustration Free Packaging Programs guidelines.

Our APASS certification gives us the ability to help your organization’s ASINs (Amazon Standard Identification Number) meet the guidelines set out under Amazon’s Frustration-Free Packaging Program within the framework of 3 certification tiers. Specifically Tier 1 – Frustration Free Packaging (FFP), Tier 2 – Ships-In-Own-Container (SIOC) and Tier 3 – Prep-Free Packaging (PFP).


These guidelines are being enacted on August 1st, 2019 and require all items with outer dimensions larger than 18x14x8 inches or weighing 20 pounds or more be certified as Ready to Ship. We have the expertise to determine which of the three tiers (Frustration-Free Packaging, Ships in Own Container, Prep-Free Packaging) specific products fit into, and provide you with the best packaging solutions to fulfill your orders through the E-commerce marketplace.

The purpose of these new guidelines is to reduce the number of times that a damaged or defective product is delivered.


Along with being a Registered ISO9001:2015 organization and long-standing market leading packaging materials provider, Crownhill Packaging is also a Certified ISTA (International Safe Transit Association) Lab with the resources and technical expertise assist in designing, testing and validating optimal packaging for products involved in supply chain distribution.

July 31st, 2019 is the final day to register your ASINs for the one-time early adopter credit of $1.00/unit. If you’re an Amazon vendor and or need any assistance with Amazon’s new regulations, send us an email at apass@crownhillpackaging.com
