On the Review Shipments page, you can review and approve your shipment.
Reviewing shipments is the fourth step in the six-step shipment creation workflow:
When you create a shipping plan, the inventory in that shipping plan may be split into multiple shipments to different fulfillment centers in order to:
The Review Shipments page displays a list of the shipments, as well as the shipment ID and destination fulfillment center for each shipment. Each shipment created as part of a shipping plan has its own shipment ID.
Changes you make to your shipping plan may change the number of items in each shipment. For example, adding 12 items of a single product to your shipping plan may result in two shipments of six items each. If you change the total quantity from 12 to nine items, your plan may be updated, resulting in one shipment of seven items and a second shipment of two items.
Make sure you carefully review your shipping plan before you approve it. If you need to change an approved shipment plan, your only option is to delete the entire shipment plan and create a new one before shipping any part of that shipment plan.
We recommend that you do not print the pack list until after you approve the shipping plan. Pack lists printed before you approve a shipping plan may not reflect any changes you made before approving the plan, and may lead to errors in your shipments. For example, if you send an unexpected number of items to a fulfillment center (too many or too few), this discrepancy will appear in the Shipping Queue as a problem with your shipment.
On the Review Shipments page, you can review and approve your shipment. The information provided includes:
You can see the entire contents of a shipment by clicking View shipment contents. Click Hide shipment contents to collapse the list.
Click Approve shipments to approve the shipping plan.
Make sure you confirm the details before you approve a shipment. After you approve your shipment:
If you do not want to split your shipments to multiple destinations, you can sign up for the FBA Inventory Placement Service and send all of your eligible inventory to a single receive or fulfillment center that we designate. When the shipment arrives, we route your products to different fulfillment centers for you. A per-item service fee applies for the Inventory Placement Service.
After you click Approve shipments, the Review Shipments page becomes the View Shipments page.
