Once you’ve booked transportation with Amazon Global Logistics, review the bill of lading (BOL) from your carrier. You can also track your shipment and possibly change your booking.
For more information, see these Help topics:
A bill of lading (BOL) is a document issued by a carrier that acknowledges receipt of cargo for your shipment. A BOL for air freight is also called an “airway bill.” Amazon Global Logistics will provide your BOL to you once it’s ready.
For ocean freight, your BOL will typically be available to you within three business days after departure from the origin.
For air freight, your BOL will typically be available to you within one business day after departure from the origin.
Because bookings don’t allow the release of original BOLs, a letter of guarantee is not required. If you think that you have received an original BOL in error, complete a letter of guarantee so that your shipment can be released. We can provide you with a letter of guarantee template, if needed.
To view the status of a shipment, select Tracking a shipment under Shipment tracking and changes. Then enter your shipment ID.
If inventory is being distributed to multiple fulfillment centers, you can track the status of each shipment using the process above.
Depending on the status of your shipment, it may be possible to edit your completed booking. For ocean freight, note that any submissions of the Automated Manifest System (AMS) after your designated cut-off time will cause delays in loading the container onto the vessel. Any amendment after submission will also result in AMS amendment and document amendment fees.
