Box-Level Inventory Placement helps improve the distribution of your products across Amazon’s fulfillment network. For eligible inventory that you send to Amazon, we use your box-level information to streamline shipping to fulfillment centers so that your products are stored closer to customers.
The box content information that you provide, determines whether your shipment is eligible for box-level placement. Eligible shipments are separated into multiple box groups, with each group sharing the same destination address. There is no additional cost to you.
If box-level placement applies to your shipment, via Box-Level Inventory Placement will appear under the Ship to heading in your shipping plan. You create and track shipments as you normally would and do not have to send to multiple destinations.
For Partnered Carrier program shipments, we work with the carrier to handle your shipment, with no impact on your carrier operations and costs. Your shipping labels will show different fulfillment centers, allowing the partnered carrier to streamline the shipping of your products by box group.
For non-partnered carrier shipments, we continue to send each complete shipment, including all box groups, to one initial destination. This destination is the physical address on the shipping labels. Your shipping labels will also show additional final fulfillment center destinations, allowing your products to be routed more efficiently.
