Transport Package Testing Lab


Compadre Labs LLC is an official participant in the Amazon Packaging Support and Supplier Network (APASS).

The APASS program was designed by Amazon to help support vendors, sellers and manufacturers to obtain certification of their products as Frustration Free Packaging (FFP), Ships-in-Own-Container (SIOC) or Prep-Free Packaging (PFP).   Compadre Labs LLC provides APASS services directly to vendors, sellers or manufacturers related to package testing in compliance with Amazon’s certification test methods.


This test is designed for packaged products shipped by vendors to Fulfillment Centers and delivered to the final customer destinations via parcel shipment or LTL freight. There are currently eight (8) varieties of packaged products that are designated as Types A-H. The parameters for each designation are listed in the chart below.
