Review shipments to Amazon

On the Review Shipments page, you can review and approve your shipment. After you approve a shipment, the Review Shipments page becomes the View Shipments page.

Review Shipments is the fourth step in the six-step shipment creation workflow:


  1. Set Quantity
  2. Prepare Products
  3. Label Products
  4. Review Shipments
  5. Prepare Shipment
  6. Summary

When you create a shipping plan, the inventory in that shipping plan may be split into multiple shipments to different fulfillment centers in order to:

  • Distribute your inventory throughout Amazon's fulfillment network to optimize shipping speeds and minimize delays
  • Manage special storage or handling requirements
  • Ensure proper processing at the fulfillment center

The Review Shipments page displays a list of the shipments, as well as the shipment ID and destination fulfillment center for each shipment. Each shipment created as part of a shipping plan has its own shipment ID.

Changes you make to your shipping plan may change the number of items in each shipment. For example, adding 12 items of a single product to your shipping plan may result in two shipments of six items each. If you change the total quantity from 12 to nine items, your plan may be updated, resulting in one shipment of seven items and a second shipment of two items.

Make sure you review your shipping plan before you approve it. We recommend that you do not print the pack list until after you approve the shipping plan. Pack lists printed before you approve a shipping plan may not reflect any changes you made before approving the plan, and may lead to errors in your shipments. For example, if you send an unexpected number of items to a fulfillment center (too many or too few), this discrepancy will appear in the Shipping Queue as a problem with your shipment.

Review shipment information

On the Review Shipments page, you can review and approve your shipment. The information provided includes:

  • Shipment name: A name is assigned to your shipment based on the date, time, and number of shipments included in the plan after it is split.
    Tip: You can change the shipment name by typing a new name in the text box. When you have an existing shipping plan for the same fulfillment center that you haven't yet sent, you can add the new shipment to an existing shipment.
  • Shipment ID: A shipment ID is created automatically.
  • MSKUs: The number of MSKUs (unique product identifiers) included in the shipment
  • Units: The quantity of each MSKU in the shipment
  • Ship to: The code and location of the destination fulfillment center

You can see the entire contents of a shipment by clicking View shipment contents. Click Hide shipment contents to collapse the list.

Add a product to an existing shipment

In order to add a product to an existing shipment, it must meet the following conditions;

  • If you are adding case-packed products, the existing shipment must also include case-packed products.
  • The "ship-from" address for both the shipping plan and the existing shipment must match.
  • The destination fulfillment center for the products you plan to add must match that of the existing shipment.
  • You must perform the preparation of the products yourself. Amazon cannot prepare on units added to an existing shipment.
  • The shipment must not have been created using "Scan & Ship".
  • If any planned units are marked as Hazardous Materials (Hazmat) the existing shipment must also be marked as "Hazmat".

To approve each shipment click the Work on Shipment button. You shipments are automatically saved with each step you complete, so you can leave and return to complete them at a later time. To return to a shipment in progress, go to the Shipping Queue.
