Box content was developed by Amazon to track the movement of inventory through their distribution network. This gives Amazon insight into the exact location of every product even before it's organized at their fulfillment warehouse. This allows for products to be made available for sale sooner and be delivered to the customer faster.
Often you can influence Amazon’s warehouse selection by preplanning a One-Box shipment. This strategy allows you to process and ship about 25-40 books at a time in one box. It is thought that Amazon may be organizing the way shipments are routed by weight or cubic feet. Usually, this strategy is successful, but every so often there is a split shipment.
Split Shipments - Amazon may split a shipment, meaning a few books are routed to another warehouse. A simple remedy is to remove the books from the shipment and store them aside to process later. The majority of books should still be in one box and can be approved for shipment without the need to include box content information.
Starting from December 31st, 2022, Amazon has decided to discontinue the FBA Shipping Plan workflow. To simplify the process for the "Send to Amazon" workflow, Amazon has introduced a new procedure that sellers should follow:
1. Begin a new session by creating a new session.
2. Scan all the items you wish to send and place them in a box, ensuring that the box does not exceed a weight of 50 pounds.
3. Once you have finished scanning the items, download the text file that contains all the necessary information.
4. Upload the text file in the "Send to Amazon" section, and you're done!
By following this new procedure, sellers can easily streamline the process of sending items to Amazon without any hassles. As always, Amazon remains committed to making the selling experience as convenient as possible for its sellers.
