Amazon FBA Preparation

Warehousing, Storage and Freight Forwarding Services for Amazon Importers

Amazon FBA Freight Forwarding Solutions

If you're involved with online commerce, inventory management and distribution is an integral part of your business. If you lack the capability, storage space, or desire to deal with these issues directly, third-party logistics (3PL) can be a major help. At SHIPIT Logistics, we support Amazon sellers with a trusted Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) service.
 

With a flexible and seamless approach to inventory management, FBA offers faster turnaround times and massive cost savings for all industry sectors.

FBA is incredibly common and getting more popular all the time. The United States leads the way with 73% of Amazon sellers using FBA, followed by 61% in Spain, 57% in Italy, 65% in Canada, 55% in Japan, and 51% in France. With 1.6 million packages shipping from Amazon every day, access to a reliable FBA service is essential for a growing number of businesses.

At SHIPIT, we offer a range of FBA services, including international ocean (FCL and LCL) and airfreight forwarding, ISF filing, customs clearance, local trucking from port to warehouse, and 3PL fulfillment services for Amazon preparation.

What is FBA?

Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) is a respected freight forwarding program that's part of the Amazon Supply Chain. With FBA, a merchant ships products directly to Amazon warehouses across the country for fulfillment. FBA offers several advantages over direct shipping, with deliveries arriving faster, products selling quicker, and logistics much easier to manage.

How FBA works in three simple steps:

  1. We pick up your inventory.

  2. We do all the prep work.

  3. We ship your goods to Amazon.

 

Comprehensive FBA prep solutions

After an international shipment arrives, preparation work is needed before your goods are moved to an Amazon warehouse. This stage is necessary for many reasons, and it's an important part of our service. FBA prep involves various inspection, packaging, and labeling services based on Amazon’s stringent guidelines. At SHIPIT Logistics, our team will get your items ready and deal with all aspects of compliance.
 

We prepare your goods to survive Amazon’s robots and conveyor systems, packaging everything carefully to survive drop tests and sharp edges. We also add correct labeling based on Amazon specifications, including suffocation warning labels for plastic bags, notices for items sold as a set, and relabeling on top of bubble wrap. We use FNSKU labels with Amazon’s proprietary barcodes to ensure seamless integration and total compliance. 

Amazon FBA freight forwarding services

At SHIPIT Logistics, we offer the following services as part of our Amazon 3PL package:

International Ocean and Air Freight Forwarding

We provide international ocean and airfreight services, direct from the supplier to our warehouse. If you want to receive cargo via ocean transportation, we offer FCL and LCL services. We also have dedicated airfreight options, so you can find the perfect solution for your shipment.

  • Full container load (FCL) is an exclusive shipping option, with each container having freight for a single party. There are many advantages to this arrangement, including faster shipping times and lower delivery and insurance costs. Because FCL shipments involve cargo for a single party, there is no need to open containers along the way and far fewer delays.

  • Less than container load (LCL) is a non-exclusive shipping option, with each container having freight for multiple parties. There are also benefits to this arrangement, including greater flexibility around shipment sizes and lower warehousing and inventory costs. However, LCL arrangements can involve higher costs and longer time frames.

  • We also provide airfreight forwarding services from the supplier directly to our warehouse. This is a flexible solution with a range of benefits, from increased convenience to faster delivery and cheaper distribution. If you deal with smaller or infrequent loads, this service can be a major advantage.

ISF filing for ocean shipments

We offer specialized importer security filing (ISF) services for goods that are arriving by ocean. Also known as "10+2," ISF is a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) requirement for all cargo imports coming via the sea. This filing documents information as shipments move between locations. ISF documents must be delivered before vessels depart to the USA, and the details need to be right. At SHIPIT, we manage everything associated with ISF for ocean shipments.

Customs Clearance

We can help you manage all aspects of customs clearance. Whether you're shipping via air or sea, we’ll choose the ideal cargo service and help you meet all customs requirements. We'll even assist you in managing taxes and splitting shipments to keep costs down and optimize delivery schedules. Errors with customs documentation will slow down any shipment, so our team will help you avoid mistakes at every turn.

Transport from port to warehouse

We can assist you in avoiding bottlenecks and speeding up delivery times. Along with major global shipping routes, the time frame of your shipment depends greatly on local transportation from the seaport or airport to the warehouse. Delays are common, and freight gets lost easily, so it's important to plan for all contingencies. We have access to multiple trucking and tracking options to ensure safe and timely delivery. From LCL, Air and FCL, we can handle the inbound drayage or trucking to our facility.

3PL Fulfillment Services

We offer a range of 3PL preparation and fulfillment solutions. We have expertise with Amazon products and services, and we'll help you prepare items for pickup and delivery to any location. We can assist you in preparing items for Amazon carriers and with delivery to Amazon's FBA warehouses. Whatever you need, our team specializes in all aspects of 3PL fulfillment services for Amazon preparation.
