Once you have confirmed your pallet configurations and accepted the shipping cost estimates in step 4 of the Send to Amazon workflow, you can print labels for your pallets.
Watch our video tutorials.
Pallet shipments with Amazon partnered carriers
Each pallet that you ship with an Amazon partnered carrier must have a pallet label, which includes information that the fulfilment centre uses to verify the arrival of the shipment.
Four copies of each label will be generated for each pallet in your shipment. Place one copy of the label on each of the four sides of the pallet, in the centre near the top, on the outside of the stretch wrap.
All boxes for pallet shipments must also have an FBA box ID label. You can print those labels in step 3, Print box labels
To print your pallet labels, follow these steps:
Select your pallet label type under Print pallet labels and documentation and click on Print. The status of your shipment changes from Working to Ready to ship.
Place the labels squarely (not on an angle) on each of the four sides of the pallet so the forklift driver will be able to see them.
Label the pallet Single ASIN pallet if it contains units of only one ASIN.
When you ship multiple SKUs on a pallet, separate the SKUs so they are easy to tell apart when they are received at the fulfilment centre.
A bill of lading (BOL) will be provided if you are using an Amazon partnered carrier. The BOL will be generated on the morning of the pickup date. You must provide a valid BOL to the carrier or the shipment will be refused upon delivery.
When you send your shipment with the Amazon Freight LTL shipping program, additional Amazon carrier pallet ID labels are required. Each set of four Amazon carrier pallet ID labels is unique and must be applied with your FBA pallet ID label. For more information, go to Arranging for an LTL or Truckload Delivery to Amazon.
Note: Once you have handed over your boxes to the carrier, you can track receipt of your inventory and find reconciliation information on the Shipment Summary page by clicking on the Track shipment links at the bottom of the Send to Amazon page.
