Truckload delivery to Amazon

Less than truckload (LTL) and full truckload (FTL) shipments, including wrapped pallets, require additional preparations. Here is everything you and your carrier are responsible for while sending large-volume shipments to Amazon.

Note: The requirements for individual boxes shipped to fulfilment centres also apply to boxes loaded on pallets for transport by truck. For more information, refer to the help page Shipping and routing requirements.

What you need to do

You are responsible for:

  • Using acceptable pallets
  • Building pallet shipments
  • Adhering to pallet label requirements
  • Providing the bill of lading (BOL)
  • Providing your carrier with Amazon reference IDs and shipment IDs

For more information, refer to the help page Seller requirements for less than truckload (LTL) and full truckload (FTL) deliveries.

What your carrier needs to do

Make sure your carrier:

  • Has Amazon reference IDs and shipment IDs
  • Schedules advanced delivery appointments
  • Adheres to the vehicle condition requirements

For more information, refer to the help page Carrier requirements for less than truckload (LTL) and full truckload (FTL) deliveries.

Additional resources and requirements

Pallets are preferred. If you must floor-load your shipment, refer to the help page Floor loading policy. For small parcels, refer to the help page Small parcel delivery 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 fulfilment centre, disposal or return of inventory, blocking of future deliveries to the fulfilment centre, charging for preparation, or for non-compliance at the fulfilment centre. Please share these requirements with your carrier or vendor to ensure that they fully understand these requirements.
