How to ship to Amazon amid Coronavirus outbreak

How to ship to Amazon amid Coronavirus outbreak

Freight Right offers alternative shipping and warehousing options for Amazon Sellers during a time of global trade disruption.

  

Problem & Solution 

As part of its measures to contain the spread of the novel Coronavirus and to better aid the communities that are heavily affected by it, Amazon has temporarily stopped receiving shipments of goods that the company considers “non-essential.”

As these restrictions remain in effect, Freight Right offers Amazon Sellers the option to ship your goods to the United States and to hold them in our warehouses. Once Amazon lifts the restrictions, your goods will be labeled and delivered to Amazon FBA on days' notice. You will also be able to book Amazon Partner Carriers to pick up your goods from our facilities. 

The alternative is leaving your goods at factories. This will likely cause space issues for the manufacturers. Most importantly this means it will take at least four weeks before the goods are delivered to Amazon after the restrictions are lifted. There is also the omnipresent risk of further shutdowns and restrictions on cargo movement worldwide, which can further delay your inventory. 

The expert consensus seems to be that supply chain disruptions will get much worse before they get better, so it’s best to act fast and ship your orders into the country.
