Recent In-Bound FBA Shipments Extremely Delayed


Same delivery related issue with this warehouse via UPS.


I have the same issue. It shows out for delivery to Earth City? On 7-31 and nothing after that. The status is in transit on both Amazon and UPS site with Amazon continuing to move delivery date back. I don’t know if it’s lost or what?


FTW1 - 1000 units and 10 boxes delivered on 6/26. Still waiting to be checked in.


Henderson Nevada - I have 5 shipments delivered but not checked in or received. I have 2 more on the way.


This general message appears under Shipment Events:

" You may experience longer than usual receive times due to a higher volume of shipments. Please note: We are unable to manually expedite the shipment receive process, and Selling Partner Support does not have further guidance."

Did they just add this message over the last couple of days or have I just overlooked it?


UPS is showing my shipment delivered on 7/7/2020, but not yet checked in by amazon warehouse


Every inbound shipment in the past month is either not showing delivered or delivered but not checked in. We are quickly running out of FBA inventory and all replenishment stock is sitting somewhere not available for purchase. All of this and just accepted a loan from Amazon with the first payment due in 6 days. How nice it is to accept a loan offer from Amazon to use for building our Amazon store yet will need to make payments with interest from my bank account because our balance at Amazon remains in negative due to monthly subscription, storage fees, and inbound transportation fees. This is the first time I’ve seen anything like this in 12 years selling on Amazon or anywhere in the 25 years I’ve been in business.

We are considering just sending a payment in full to pay off the Amazon Loan and just let everything sit until Amazon gets caught up. At this point eBay sales are far exceeding Amazon sales because we self-fulfill our orders.

The humorous part is that there was a recent poll asking if I thought Amazon could support my business. Inventory stuck either with the carrier waiting for a firm delivery appointment or in the yard of some Amazon Fulfillment center waiting for check-in doesn’t pay for my suppliers, employees, Amazon Lending or least of all ME. Hey at least we have other channels to sell on so its not the end of the world. I feel for the businesses that are not as fortunate to wait it out.


Same thing with FBA going to Charlotte NC location. Shipped several packages to them, oldest was sent 7/16…delivered to dock 7/24 and nothing more since. The next 2 sent on 7/21 & 7/23 were scanned in & completed in less than 1 weeks time !!! The next 5 still show as inbound, all delivered but with no further action. One SKU became “inactive” 2 wk ago when inventory ran “OOS/out of stock” in spite of sending enough product (in 4 different boxes) to cover 2 month worth of sales…it’s all sitting on a dock somewhere unchecked !!! Had another shipment back few months ago appeared lost, no tracking info for almost 4 weeks, then it showed up as delivered 1 week after orig ship date, but still took a month before scanned/checked in…caused another SKU to become OOS for over 2 wks !!!


Henderson Nevada for me too. LAS1
Shows inbound since 7/23; last location is Avondale, AZ. Scheduled delivery date keeps moving out every few days, now showing August 12. At least I know I’m not alone in this mess.


I now have 6 shipments that have been delivered to LAS1 (Henderson NV) and not received - starting on July 27th. One more is on the way.

Like everyone, I need the August sales.


Why are all shipments not suspended at this point? It looks like every fulfillment center is backed up.

I can’t have all of this inventory “in orbit” for weeks and months with no idea of when it will be available.

I don’t especially want to merchant fulfill but that is better than this.


I now have 22 shipments showing delivered to LAS1 since July 27. None have been checked in, and I have 7 more in transit. The reconcile date is now pushed out to at least September 21. Even if the inventory got checked in by September 21, it will still be showing with a backorder date 2-3 weeks in the future, as typical. This means the inventory I sent to Amazon in July won’t be off of backorder status until some time in October! This is unacceptable. I can no longer justify sending inventory into the black hole that Amazon has become. As much as I hate self-fulfilling orders, it is now the only viable option.



Im going through this I shipped to CLT2 9 days ago, was delivered and signed for in 4 days (delivered by DHL Express) so its been sat there for well over a week and nothing…

Nothing from Amazon, nothing scanned in as received. I’ve been supplying Amazon sellers for a number of years and i’ve never had my customers complain to me with this issue, the time that I decide to sale on the platform it happens (this is my first shipment for myself to them)

So what do we do guys just sit here and wait?.. is there anything I can to find out whats happened or speed it up?



I have two shipments delivered recently to LAS1, the first one delivered on July 29, the second one on August 6, both still not checked-in. I used to be assigned to FTW1, the speed was acceptable, but this new FBA center, really slow processing. I open the cases three times asking about this, but always replyed with “copy and paste” answers. my storage level is very low now, I am thinking of changing to fulfillment by merchant if they are still not checked-in


Today I finally had one of my 7 waiting shipments received. It was delivered to LAS1 on July 27th. It isn’t the one that has waited the longest (July 25th), but I will take anything at this point. I hate being thrilled over something that should have happened long ago - but I am.


Did your shipment to STL8 ever go from “In Transit” to “Delivered?” And, from there did it ever get checked in? This is exact thing is happening to me now. UPS is telling me to put in a claim because they consider it lost.


my shipment which delivered on July 29 is in processing now, none of them can be sold, all in transfer…

the one delivered on August 6 still waiting


It is still “In Transit”. But the AMZ Shipping Events now shows that it is in Earth City and is scheduled for an Aug 15 delivery which is a new update from AMZ.

I think what has happened is that the AMZ yard was full of trailers and they told UPS to not bring anything to them so UPS is storing their trailers in Earth City waiting for a “slot” at AMZ. That is why UPS shows delivered to Earth City instead of St. Peters but also still in transit . But this is all guessing on my part from reading between the lines. I don’t really know what is going on :blush:.


Hello George,

Yeah, mine is “Delivered” to Earth City, too. I am hoping you are right and it is in a trailer and not lost like UPS said.


My UPS last update for STL8 inbound shipment:

Aug 04, 2020 05:21:00 AM - Earth City MO US - Out for delivery

Today, 8/13 it moved to Receiving, so it should be fair to assume if that’s the last update you see your package was delivered.
