4 REASONS FBA SELLERS PREFER FREIGHT FORWARDERS

ONCE YOU’RE READY TO SHIP YOUR PRODUCTS TO AMAZON'S FULFILLMENT CENTER (OR WHEREVER YOUR CLOSEST AMAZON WAREHOUSE IS), YOU CAN SHIP YOUR PRODUCTS THROUGH AN AMAZON PARTNERED CARRIER OR A FREIGHT FORWARDER. IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A HANDS-OFF APPROACH, YOU MIGHT WANT TO USE A FREIGHT FORWARDING COMPANY TO FACILITATE THE PROCESS. THEY ARE NORMALLY A CHEAPER ALTERNATIVE AND CAN PROVIDE A COMPLETELY HANDS-OFF APPROACH FOR AMAZON FBA SELLERS

 

We have narrowed down the top 4 reasons why FBA sellers who wish to ship directly from their supplier to Amazon's warehouse prefers to use Freight Forwarders:

  1. They are normally cheaper although they have to ship with Amazon Partnered carriers. This is because they have a huge bargaining power over the carriers due to their arrangements of numerous shimpents for smaller players. The disount eventually benefits both the freight forwarder and the freight customer, namely the FBA Seller.

  2. They are normally a safer option because they can provide additonal services such as product inspection, FNSKU Labelling before the products are shipped far from the manufacturer. Amazon are very strict when it comes to damaged items and can in worst case suspend your seller account. Freight Forwarders are normally specialized within one specific niche and understands the needs of the needs of their niche customer base better. One example of a niche is Amazon shipments from China, which is what FBA Transport specializes in.

  3. They are smaller which will make them more flexible to undergo changes that will benefit their niche customers. Larger companies are normally more bureaucratic, which can make it challenging to adapt to new requirements for only a smaller fraction of their client base.

  4. They can take over the whole process, allowing you to focus on growing your business!
