Summary of shipment process

On the Summary page, you can review your shipment contents, track your shipments, and their receiving status at the fulfillment center. If there are problems with your shipment, you will be notified on the Summary page and in the Shipping Queue.

Summary is the sixth step in the six-step shipment creation workflow:

  1. Set quantity for shipments to Amazon
  2. Prepare your products for FBA shipping
  3. Label products
  4. Review/view shipments to Amazon
  5. Prepare shipments to Amazon
  6. Summary of shipment process

The Summary page provides an overview of your shipment and tools for tracking carrier progress as well as the receiving process after the shipment arrives at the fulfillment center.

Note: At this stage, you have the opportunity to change the number of boxes in your shipment. However, it's too late to change the quantities of your product in your shipping plan. This information will enable us to provide you with accurate shipment statuses and visibility in the Shipping Queue.

Important: If you modify the number of boxes after you have already printed your labels, you must reprint the entire set of labels for your shipment.

The Summary page consists of three tabs:

  • Track shipment provides tracking information about your shipment.
    • For small parcels, you can track your shipment by box number, tracking ID, and carrier status.
    • For less-than and full truckloads (LTL and FTL), you can track your shipment by freight number and your bill of lading (BOL). The Amazon-generated BOL is available in your seller account 24 hours before your scheduled pickup.
    • For less-than and full truckloads (LTL and FTL), you can enter your freight number and your bill of lading (BOL). If you used an Amazon-partnered carrier, Amazon will generate your BOL. The Amazon-generated BOL is available in your seller account on the morning of your scheduled pickup.
  • Shipment contents is a list of products included in your shipment and the number of items received when the shipment arrives at the fulfillment center. To see the status of your received items, click the number of units received. You can see how many units are in FC transfer and how many units are available for Prime sale. Units in FC transfer are available for sale, but cannot be eligible for Prime delivery until they are transferred to destination FCs.
  • Reconcile identifies discrepancies between what was listed in the shipment and what is received at the fulfillment center. For more information, see Reconciling Your Shipment.

If you did not use an Amazon-partnered carrier, on the Track shipment tab, enter your tracking information so that Amazon can provide you with accurate shipment tracking information.

  • For small parcel delivery, enter the tracking ID.
  • For LTL and FTL, enter your bill of lading (BOL) and freight number.

Click Shipment contents to display a list of the items included in the shipment.

Once your inventory is received at a fulfillment center or receive center, it is available for sale. Reconciliation of shipped inventory may take up to 21 days.

After the shipment arrives at the fulfillment center, if there are discrepancies between what was listed in the shipment and what is received, you can use the Shipment Reconciliation Tool to submit a research request in order to locate the missing items. For more information, see Reconciling Your Shipment.
