Important: Failure to label your boxes with the required FBA box ID label may lead to blocking of future shipment.
Making sure that your labels can be scanned quickly and easily when your shipment arrives at the fulfillment center helps to prevent delays in receiving your inventory.
On this page, you will learn about the requirements for printing and applying shipment labels to your shipping boxes.
Each box or pallet that you ship to Amazon must be properly identified with a delivery label. Follow these guidelines for labelling your boxes:
Print the full set of labels. Each label is unique; so do not photocopy, reuse, or modify labels for use on additional boxes.
Labels supported measure 99.1 X 139 mm (A4) on plain paper.
Don't place labels on a seam or opening on the box as they might be damaged when the box is opened.
The FBA shipment label and the carrier label should both be placed on a flat surface of the box, so that barcodes do no fold over edges or corners.
Both labels must remain uncovered so that they are scannable and readable.
Each box you include in the shipment must have its own FBA shipment label printed from your Shipping Queue.
Each pallet you send needs four labels, one in the top center of each side.

the Primary carton you are using for shipping products to fulfillment centers. You do not
need to apply the unique shipping labels to the individual case-packs inside the primary
You can print shipment labels within the shipping workflow. If you have already created your shipment, you can access the shipping workflow from the Shipping Queue in Manage FBA Shipments page.
