Forwarding service


$9.99 per carton plus shipping – or less, if shipping directly from China to FBA!

If you’re a seller that is prepared and has everything properly “prepped” and you do not need any services, you simply need “Forwarding.” We take the original label addressed to us off, add ours (provided by you via Amazon), and ship to Amazon.  We do not open the box, we do not inspect, and we do not offer any prep services with this feature. This is strictly a mail forwarding service, not a prep service.

Removal Order Service

We will take your removal orders from Amazon and re-ship it to you. Amazon tends to send parts of return orders sporadically – we will send them out as we receive them. We will work with you to decide on a frequency that works best for you.


  • Starting at $9.99 per carton, plus shipping

Photography Services

We have professional experience doing product photography. We can handle your photo needs as well, and offer multiple packages to help your product perform its best on Amazon. We will provide you high quality, fully processed, edited and listing-ready Amazon photos. Quotes are made on a personal basis, as there are many factors at hand with this service. Contact us for personalized photo package and details.

  • Starting at $65 per photo

Prep and Forwarding


How come AMZ transit doesn’t include outbound shipping on prepped items to FBA?
Amazon’s Partnered Shipping option for transporting products from our facility to theirs is far less expensive than any carrier can offer independently. In the event you prefer not to use Amazon’s offering, we can provide quotes using standard carriers as well.

What is the difference between freight forwarding and AMZ Transit’s Forwarding service?
Freight forwarding is the actual shipping of goods. Our Forwarding service is available for those unable to receive goods at their location. We will receive and send your products to Amazon, without any prep or inspection, at a reduced rate.

Freight Forwarding and Shipping


When shipping from my supplier, when is palletization required?
When shipping from your supplier, palletization is nearly always necessary.

What’s the difference between FOB vs EXW?
In a nutshell, FOB means that your goods will be ready at a port for pickup, and will be dropped off at a port. EXW, or “door-to-door” is picking up at the supplier’s location, and delivering right to our facility, or to Amazon. FOB can leave a little more in the supplier’s hands, while with EXW, we handle the entire process.

Why is your quote more expensive than another freight company’s?
While our rates are extremely competitive, we pride ourselves on reliability in shipping. We have never had a “miss” in shipping. Our network of carriers is built from years of experience, with plenty of testing carried out on each company. When you use us for shipping, you can be assured your products will be delivered without a hitch.


My supplier offered shipping for $300, why is your quote more expensive? Can you just pick up the goods at the port and take them to Amazon?
Many times suppliers don’t include charges for paperwork related to customs, or may package many customers’ goods together under their own name. While sometimes this works, we regularly see it cause delays and many extra charges (sometimes fees amounting to more than our original shipping quote). We highly recommend against using suppliers for shipping, unless you have substantial shipping experience.

Can you just pick up the goods at the port and take them to Amazon?
We really advise against this approach, as we often see customers surprised with fees and tight deadlines given by the port. There are many small nuances involved in shipping to Amazon that this approach leaves out.

Do you guys handle all customs?
Yes! We take care of all the paperwork for you, making sure you have an accurate quote, and a smooth importing experience. And in the event of the unexpected in shipping, we have extensive experience in rectifying nearly any situation that may arise.

I’m not in the USA, do I need an EIN to do business with you?
You don’t need an EIN to do business with us, but to sell on Amazon, you will need an EIN. Obtaining this is not a service we offer.

Can you ship direct to FBA?
Yes! Many of our customers who don’t need prep services do this to save money.
