Small parcel delivery to Amazon

Important: Failure to comply with FBA product preparation requirements, safety requirements, and product restrictions may result in the refusal of inventory at Amazon fulfillment centers, disposal or return of inventory, blocking of future shipments to fulfillment centers, or charging for preparation or for non-compliance. Share these requirements with your carrier or vendor to ensure that they fully understand and adhere to these requirements.

The following requirements apply to all small parcel deliveries shipped to Amazon fulfillment centers.

Boxes preparation

  • All small parcel delivery boxes must have shipment labels.
  • Indicate the number of box labels you will need (one per box) and print them using laser printer. Do not use inkjet printers as barcodes may become unscannable due to the ink smudging or running.
  • Do not include messaging on shipment labels or other labels applied on boxes.
  • Box dimensions must not exceed 63.5 cm on any side unless the dimension of a single shippable unit exceeds 63.5 cm in itself.
  • Each box must weigh no more than 23 kg unless it contains one single oversized item that exceeds 23 kg. Boxes weighing more than 15 kg must be marked "Heavy Package", which must be viewable from both the top and sides of each heavy weight container. Boxes that weigh more than 23 kg must be broken down into smaller shipment weights.
  • Place each label on the outside of each box taking care to ensure that the physical contents of the box match with the box number in the shipping plan.
  • Position the labels so they will be easily visible when receiving at the fulfillment center and do not cross the box seam.
  • Print the full set of labels. Because each label is unique, do not photocopy, reuse, or modify for use on additional boxes.
  • Shipment labels must not be placed on the seam of the box where they can be damaged when the box is opened, which makes the barcodes not scannable.
  • Whenever possible, place shipment labels no closer than 3 cm or 1.25’’ from any natural edge of the box, in such a way that the tape used to seal the box does not cover any barcode or critical information.

Guidelines for carriers

  • Only professional carriers are allowed to make delivery appointments with Amazon fulfillment centers. Amazon does not allow general public deliveries.
  • Carriers must adhere to our delivery requirements and safety standards.
  • All carriers need to supply evidence that goods were handed over to the designated Amazon fulfillment center. Proof is provided by a time stamp for drop-off at Amazon premises and the signature or name of an Amazon employee.
Important: Keep in mind that your shipments to Germany that are assigned to fulfillment centers in Poland or Czech Republic and not using the Partnered Carrier Program with DHL will be directed to logistic service providers. The addresses will be automatically generated during the shipment creation in Seller Central on your shipment label.

The address of the WRO5 fulfillment center is the Finsterwalder hub in Halle/Saale:

Finsterwalder Transport und Logistik GmbH
Schieferstraße 16 
06126 Halle/Saale 

To schedule an appointment for a small parcel shipment with the Finsterwalder hub, your carrier needs to book an appointment at Finsterwalder Booking to avoid waiting times.

The address of the other fulfillment center in Poland and Czech Republic is the Amm hub in Nürnberg:

Amm GmbH & Co KG Spedition
Hamburger Str. 99
90451 Nürnberg 

To schedule an appointment for a small parcel shipment with the Amm hub in Nürnberg, your carrier needs to write to amazon-fba@amm-spedition.de and book a slot to avoid waiting times.

If you are using an Amazon-partnered carrier, you must enter the dimensional data for your small parcel delivery boxes. These dimensions are used to calculate dimensional weight, which can be used to determine fees if the dimensional weight exceeds the actual weight.

For more information on weights and measurements, go to Packing messages.

For weight, dimension, and shipping requirements that apply to all shipping methods, go to Shipping and routing requirements.

For larger shipments, go to Arrange an LTL or Truck Load delivery to Amazon.
