We have already talked about the Amazon Transport Partner Programme a few times in this blog. Now we would like to take a closer look at the programme and show you what advantages it offers. We also give you a few tips on how to get started and our own conclusion.
What is the Amazon Transport Partner Programme?
The Amazon Transport Partner Programme allows sellers to ship at low cost to logistics centres throughout Europe. In doing so, you pay significantly less than with conventional shipping. The countries that are part of the programme include Germany, France, Spain, Italy and the United Kingdom. Administration is straightforward via Seller Central.
What are the benefits of the Transport Partner Programme?
Sellers who use the Amazon Transport Partner Programme benefit from the fact that your shipments are always prioritised in the logistics centres and therefore processed more quickly. In addition, there are the already mentioned shipping costs, where you save significantly. Amazon also covers costs of up to 2,000 euros in the event of damage to your goods. Moreover, you don’t even need to register for the whole thing, because you can also send individual parcels or pallets via the programme. If you would also like to know how you can save up to 80% of the normal costs in April, please write to us briefly and without obligation.
How can sellers use the Amazon Transport Partner Programme?
To send parcels, you must navigate to “Shipping Services” in Seller Central. When creating shipments, you must then select an appropriate transport partner, whereupon you will already be informed about the shipping costs. After viewing the terms and conditions, you only have to click on “Accept costs”. You can then contact the transport partner to clarify further details. When shipping pallets, you proceed in the same way, except that you receive a pick-up date directly in addition to the shipping costs.
Experience with the Amazon Transport Partner Programme
We can say from our own experience that the transport partner programme works really well. You are not bound to anything, as the option can be booked individually for each shipment. Overall, we were able to save a lot on shipping costs. Therefore, we can really recommend the Amazon Transport Partner Programme to you.
