BEAVERTON, Ore., June 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Tektronix, Inc., today announced that it has expanded its certified Amazon package testing services to its Chicago area lab, giving local manufacturers an easier, faster and more cost-effective way to ensure package designs meet the requirements of Amazon's Frustration-Free Packaging Program.

In 2019, Amazon will begin requiring that packaging for items in its fulfillment centers pass a physical performance test performed by members of the Amazon Packaging Support and Supplier Network (APASS). Tektronix was one of the first members of the APASS network and received direction and training directly from Amazon.

Tektronix is certified by the International Safe Transit Association (ISTA) and offers package testing at labs in Boston (Billerica), Mass. and Wayne, N.J. in addition to the new lab in Chicago (Addison), Illinois. In addition to Amazon-specific testing, Tektronix offers package testing to all common standards such as ASTM, IEC 68-2, GR-63, RTCA/DO-160 and more at each of its testing services locations. Pick-up and drop-off services are available in the local service area. 

"With the explosive growth of eCommerce, it is increasingly important that companies minimize product loss, decrease liability, and increase customer satisfaction by thoroughly testing their packaging," said Jonathan Russell, general manager of Americas Service, Tektronix. "The expanded capabilities of our Chicago lab give companies in the Midwest the access to the certified package testing they need to stay competitive and meet requirements from online retailers like Amazon."
