Conditions to consider when choosing a good Amazon freight carrier
Experience with Amazon FBA
Amazon is one of the largest retailers in the world, and they have precise requirements for packaging, labeling and storage of goods. While you can do this yourself, it takes a lot of time and is risky. If there is a mistake in one aspect, it will cause the Amazon FBA center to reject your goods, which will cause your store to be out of stock and affect your reputation.
And, once the Amazon FBA center sends your shipment back, you will be paying your precious time and money.
Therefore, it is important to work with an Amazon freight carrier who has good experience handling Amazon shipments, as they will understand their requirements and work further with suppliers to meet the standards.
Provide customs clearance services
Make sure your Amazon freight carrier can handle all the tasks and paperwork required for customs clearance and include it in the fee.

From the supplier’s warehouse all the way to Amazon’s fulfillment center, Amazon Shipping should be able to provide you with an online logistics tracking service, so you can see where your shipments are.
Remember to ask Amazon freight carrier what type of tracking tool they use and check that it updates you in real time.
A good tracking system provides the following features
● Exception notification
● Purchase order management
● Clear Dashboard
● Custom report
● Digital copies of paperwork

For Amazon FBA warehouses, each product has its specific packaging needs. For example, some commodities require multi-layer packaging, and some require special packaging materials.
Most have pallet size requirements. There are also packages that need to be properly marked and, in some cases, protected (to prevent possible theft).
A good Amazon shipping company should have full knowledge and experience of all of these things. Only in this way, your shipment will arrive at the Amazon FBA center without any problems.
