What are the Amazon FBA pallet delivery (LTL) guidelines?

There are rules and regulations you must follow in order to successfully send your pallet to an Amazon fulfilment centre. If you follow the guidelines we set out below then you should have no problem getting your pallet into Amazon for your FBA sales.

Load Pallet Dimensions and Weight

  • Height
    Must not exceed 1.8 metres (including the height of the pallet).
  • Weight

Broken or Damaged Pallets

Broken or damaged pallets will not be accepted into any Amazon fulfilment centre. If you supply a broken or damaged pallet your delivery will be rejected and there will be an additional cost involved for a redelivery and new pallet. You may also miss your slotted delivery and incur additional costs with Amazon if you miss your delivery window.
