In March 2019, Zipform Packaging was awarded Australian Trusted Trader status. The Australian Trusted Trader program is administered by Home Affairs with the Australia Border Force, accrediting businesses such as Zipform with compliant trade practices and a secure supply chain.
As an ATT accredited business, Zipform has access to quicker border processing and priority trade services as a result of being identified as a low-risk business, ensuring packaging imported by Zipform Packaging is swiftly cleared through Australian borders, reducing the risk of lengthy customs delays.
