I am sending my shipment directly to the Amazon warehouse from China (door to door service).
After sending my shipping labels to my forwarder he now says that this is a remote address (remote Amazon warehouse) to deliver to, and UPS charges $0.66/kg extra per a kg over what he initially quoted me, unless I change the US address to another warehouse. My question is can I change my shipping plan to get the goods to a non-remote warehouse?
Hey, although I have not faced this problem myself, my understanding is (and the way i would approach it) can the goods be shipped to another amazon distribution centre and have amazon forward the goods to where they want them, i have read that they charge 30 cents per item, that may work out cheaper than the 66 cents per kg extra.
By default, when you create a shipping plan, your shipment may be divided into multiple shipments, each directed to a different fulfillment center (distributed inventory placement). The fulfillment centers are selected based on the products you’re shipping and where you are shipping from. By having your inventory spread across multiple fulfillment centers across the country, the person who buys your product will receive it faster than they would if your inventory was further away.
When I created my shipment plan within Amazon’s Seller Central it had me shipping my 1008 unit shipment to three different Amazon warehouses. When I told my freight forwarder about having ti split up my shipment into three smaller shipment and send them to three different warehouses the quote was no longer $1,500.
