Pallets and Pallet Label Requirements
Important: Failure to comply with FBA product preparation requirements, safety
requirements, and product restrictions may result in the refusal of inventory at the Amazon
fulfillment center, disposal or return of inventory, blocking of future shipments to the
fulfillment center, or charging for preparation or for noncompliance at the fulfillment
center. Please share these requirements with your carrier or supplier to ensure that they are
fully understood and adhered to.
All non-small parcel shipments must be palletized.
Pallets need to have these measurements: 1200 mm x 1000 mm. Other pallet
sizes will be rejected.
Floor-loaded shipments are unacceptable unless authorized in advance by
Amazon. Unauthorized floor-loaded shipments may be subject to refusal at the dock, return to
the Merchant at the Merchant's expense, and/or applicable non-compliance fees.
Bill of Lading
When there are two or more orders shipping from the same
pick-up location to the same Amazon fulfillment center and the required delivery date is the
same, consolidate orders into one shipment with one Bill of Lading.
Lading must reference all Amazon Reference IDs (POs) contained in the shipment. Amazon
Reference IDs are found on the View an Existing Shipment page.
Bill of Lading must include carton and pallet
quantities per shipment.
Whenever possible, the merchant should include
the Bill of Lading number on the carton or pallet label. This allows for quick freight
verification upon delivery at an Amazon fulfillment center.
Do not combine Amazon and other customers'
orders in the same shipment.
Original Bill of Lading information must be
made available to the carrier in order for the carrier to arrange advanced delivery
