What is APASS?
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.
APASS is a network of packaging experts that have been certified by Amazon to help you successfully navigate their new packaging regulations. Berlin Packaging is an APASS certified network member.
