Why you should use Amazon-approved pallets

Securing shipments with Amazon-approved pallets not only saves re-palletization costs but also guarantees safer storage on sturdy 4-way pallets. Non-approved pallets, often plastic or with fewer boards, pose warehouse safety risks due to potential breakage.

Choosing Amazon-approved pallets for your shipments offers numerous benefits beyond cost savings and safety. These pallets adhere to Amazon’s stringent quality standards, ensuring that your inventory is stored and transported with the utmost reliability and durability. With sturdy construction and standardized dimensions, Amazon-approved pallets minimize the risk of damage during transit and storage, safeguarding your products from potential losses and delays. Additionally, using approved pallets enhances your reputation as a reliable seller, as it demonstrates your commitment to quality and compliance with Amazon’s guidelines. By investing in Amazon-approved pallets, you’re not just protecting your shipments; you’re also investing in the long-term success and reputation of your business

At River Source Logistics, we prioritize safety by re-palletizing all inventory arriving on non-Amazon approved pallets. This ensures the safety of our team and prepares your inventory for seamless shipment to FBA.

Save money by ensuring your inventory arrives palletized on Amazon-approved pallets. Doing so helps you avoid the following:

  1. Avoid the $15 per foot devanning fee. When items arrive floor-loaded you are paying for unloading, the easiest way to avoid this fee is to ensure your items arrive palletized on Amazon-approved pallets. 
  2. Avoid a $15 per pallet repalletization fee by ensuring your inventory is palletized on approved pallets at your supplier.
  3. When your items arrive on Amazon-approved pallets we credit your account meaning no pallet charges on your outbound order.
