Amazon Preferred Carrier

Amazon works with selected carriers to consolidate domestic, less-than-truckload deliveries into our fulfillment centers. If you regularly send pallet deliveries that average between 1 to 13 pallets per delivery, then you are likely to benefit from using one of these carriers.

Benefits of the program

  • Carriers have daily fixed slots (including weekends) to deliver shipments across all fulfillment centers
  • Carriers will book shipment deliveries on your behalf using Carrier Central. There is no need for you to contact the Amazon fulfillment center to book a slot. All you need to do is contact the carrier and provide your shipment details - FBA shipment ID, destination fulfillment center, and number of pallets, units and cartons. Note that all of these details are mandatory for shipments going through the Preferred Carrier Program.
  • Carriers are familiar with our delivery requirements and will be able to advise you accordingly.

Conditions of this program

  • LTL shipments must still be palletized before being handed over to the carrier, as you already do. Pallet building for transportation to the Amazon fulfillment centers remains your responsibility.
  • You need to provide the shipment details to your carrier so that they can book an appointment via the Carrier Central. Specifically, you need to provide your carrier with a valid FBA Shipment ID.
  • Transportation remains at your cost and at your responsibility until the shipment is delivered to the Amazon fulfillment center. You remain accountable for the payment of transport costs to the preferred carrier, and responsible for product and transport compliance.
Note: We are only recommending our preferred carriers to you. Participation in this program is not mandatory.
Important: As a condition for participating in the Preferred Carrier Program, you understand and consent to the fact that, in order to monitor their performance, the preferred carriers will share certain operational details with Amazon on a routine basis (including the name of sellers enrolled in the program, the departure time of the shipment, lead time and estimated delivery date).

How to register

In order to register, please complete the booking form.

Remember: The Preferred Carrier Program is currently only appropriate for palletised shipments sent to Amazon. If you are sending small parcels via an express carrier (e.g., DHL or Fedex) then this program would not be suitable for you.
