How to send shipments to Amazon FBA Using “Send to Amazon”?

Amazon has introduced a new workflow system called “Send to Amazon”. This article provides a brief overview of how to create shipments using send to Amazon.

The Send to Amazon workflow is a simpler and more flexible shipping creation process that will allow sellers to save time when they need to restock their inventory. A seller can now ship both single SKU boxes and mixed SKU boxes to Amazon using Send to Amazon.

Based on the decisions you make when creating shipments, this article will guide you through a series of steps. Please keep in mind that the steps you see will vary depending on your choices.

❖ Steps to Create FBA Shipments ❖

1. Content information for the box
  • By providing all the details of the inventory, Amazon can move a seller’s product through its network with minimal human interference. One of the ways to unlock Amazon’s powerful distribution network is by giving them accurate box content information.
  • Reusable case pack templates can be used for inventory that is shipped in boxes containing multiple units of the same SKU. These templates detail how the SKUs are prepared, labeled, and packed. They’re useful if a seller requires the same box configuration for all shipments in a specific order.
  • When a seller creates a shipment in the Box account and ships it to Amazon, the box automatically collects the case-pack template’s content information. Sellers can save time by not filling out the same information for each shipment. Simply need to choose how many boxes to include in the workflow, and they will be added automatically.
  • If a box contains more than one SKU, the seller will be prompted to enter the number of units shipped for each SKU. Make sure all the inventory is packed together based on which items require special handling at Amazon’s fulfillment centers. For example, Hazmat or hazardous materials cannot be packed with other SKUs.
  • Provide box content information for each group of SKUs that can be packed together. A web form can be used by the seller to purchase a box with specific dimensions and weight. When the seller packages the inventory into multiple boxes, they are asked to enter their packaging details into a spreadsheet.
2. Shipping Confirmation
  • Amazon can help sellers to set their inventory by correlating box content information provided to them. Based on the customer’s shipping destinations, Amazon calculates rates for the shipments based on Small Parcel Delivery (SPD) or Pallets using Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) options.
  • A seller can choose to use Amazon-partnered shipping and purchase their labels directly from Amazon and send them to the carrier. This eliminates errors and saves money. In other words, a supplier can use any method of transportation they like in order to deliver their goods to an Amazon warehouse.
3. Box and Pallet Labeling
  • Each box that a seller sends to Amazon’s fulfillment centers requires an FBA box ID label. This label identifies what is inside said box. Sellers who use Amazon Fulfillment Services will generate a shipping label for each box, as well as an ID label for the FBA box.
  • Shipping pallets? The seller needs to place an FBA box ID label on each one before loading them up. After the boxes are palletized, just select a shipping carrier and provide pallet information for each shipment in the process. It is important to ensure that the appropriate label is applied to the corresponding box.
  • A seller will receive four labels for each palette – one for each side of the palette. After labeling the boxes and pallets is finished, the seller can give them to their carrier and start tracking their inventory’s arrival at Amazon’s fulfillment centers.
  • It is important to include tracking information for shipments from carriers that are not partnered with Amazon so that Amazon can be prepared for their arrival. This will help things go smoothly and avoid any delays or mix-ups.
