Delivery to Amazon logistics centers (FBA)
Anyone using Amazon Marketplace as a sales platform must first transport their goods to the Amazon warehouse. Various packaging guidelines must be taken into account here.

At Cargoboard, you benefit from our easy-to-use platform, our nationwide transport network and our first-class service.
What does Amazon FBA actually mean?
FBA stands for “Fulfillment by Amazon”. This refers to Amazon’s logistics and fulfillment service. Other terms for Amazon FBA in Germany are “Abwicklung durch Amazon” or “Verkauf und Versand durch Amazon”.
Amazon FBA wird jedoch nur gewährleistet, wenn eine reibungslose Anlieferung seitens der Händler:innen stattfindet. Bei dieser Dienstleistung kümmert sich der Versandriese um die Lagerung und Auslieferung der auf dem Marktplatz präsentierten Waren.
Other services include:
- Monitoring of the stock in the warehouse
- Labeling of the goods
- Packaging and shipping preparation
- Shipment Tracking
- Order tracking
- Returns processing
- Improved customer reach
- Increase visibility
- Customer Service
Broadly speaking, this means: You as the seller:in take care of the Amazon delivery (for example, through a freight forwarder like Cargoboard) and the shipping giant does the rest for you.
How to send the goods to Amazon?
As a merchant:in, the route of the goods to the Amazon logistics center is left up to you, as Amazon does not provide this service. To deliver to warehouses and use Amazon FBA, you need a reliable shipping company. We will gladly take over the transport order for your Amazon delivery.
Amazon's requirements for FBA logistics
The mail order company sets strict guidelines regarding FBA delivery, which retailers must strictly adhere to, otherwise they will be subject to sanctions. In the worst case your goods will not be accepted.
