Amazon sets the default transit time for new shipping templates, as shown in the table below. The default transit time is the setting that is automatically populated when you create a new template. If you are not able to meet the maximum allotted default transit time with your current carrier, then you need to set different timelines in your shipping templates.
The recommended transit time to the Lower 48 states is two to four business days.
