Global packaging manufacturer Weener Plastics has become an official participant in the Amazon Packaging Support and Supplier Network (APASS). The company is experienced in designing, developing and manufacturing rigid plastic packaging that meet demanding e-commerce delivery circumstances. Accordingly, Weener Plastics is pleased to be qualified as a member for Amazon's Frustration-Free Packaging Programs.

Digital shoppers drive consumer packaging change, and it is the industry's challenge to sensibly respond to that. Weener Plastics (WP) knows how to develop packaging that withstands the rigors of shipping. The company investigates how packages can be optimized - for example with a proper sealing, the right material or improved design - and offers the best solutions for its customers and consumers.


There are three tiers of certification within Amazon's Frustration-Free Packaging Program: Frustration Free Packaging (FFP), Ships-in-Own-Container (SIOC) or Prep-Free Packaging (PFP).

The laundry detergent closure that WP developed for Henkel last year, has been ISTA6A tested and certified. WP fully understands the testing procedures and can also help customers with the certification of their products.

Amazon's mission is to optimize the overall customer experience by collaborating with manufacturers worldwide to invent sustainable packaging that delights customers, eliminates waste, and ensures products arrive intact and undamaged. Therefore Amazon introduced the APASS program, to provide vendors, sellers and manufacturers a list of companies and labs that can help test, design and supply packaging that meet demanding e-commerce delivery circumstances.
