What You Need to Know When Sending Pallets to Amazon

27 April 2021 | Road & Transport

Have you just started selling on Amazon, or thinking about expanding your business reach through the world’s most popular sales platform? Congratulations, you are paving the way to business success! Amazon makes it easy to reach customers nationwide, Europe-wide, or even further afield. However, to make the most of your Amazon seller experience, there are a few things to know when sending your pallets to Amazon fulfilment centres. Here’s a quick guide to some frequently asked questions!

Why use pallets?

Sending pallet loads of goods is a cheaper and safer option than sending multiple parcels. A well-packaged pallet means your goods will arrive in perfect condition and you can send larger quantities at cost-effective prices for your business.

What size pallets can I send to Amazon?

Amazon accepts standard 1 x 1.2m, four-way access pallets. Each pallet can be packed to a height of 0.6m (quarter pallet), 1m (half pallet) or 1.7m (full pallet), and stretch-wrapped in clear wrapping. Don’t forget to put the correct labelling information on it. Amazon should advise you about labelling details when you become a seller.

What happens when pallets are delivered to Amazon fulfilment centres?

Once a pallet is delivered during a pre-arranged time slot, it is offloaded and goods are available for sale in just a few days.

Can I deliver pallets to Amazon fulfilment centres myself?

No, Amazon only uses approved carriers for delivery to their fulfilment centres. Using a reliable company like LTS makes the whole process hassle-free!
