Estimated costs of Flexport Direct Delivery, Flexport LTL, and Flexport FCL will be included in your quote.

FedEx:

Follow the steps below to estimate the price of using FedEx as a final delivery method. Do not accept the charges.

1. Select SPD and FedEx in your Seller Central account located under your shipment plan in Section 2: Shipping Service.

2. Complete Section 3: Shipment Packing, including the box weight (box dimensions are optional) and click Confirm.

Estimated shipping costs will be located under Section 4: Shipping Charges.

Do not accept the charges.

Amazon LTL:

  1. Select LTL and Amazon-Partnered Carrier under Section 2: Shipping Service.

2. Complete the form under Section 3: Shipment Packing and click Confirm in the bottom right.

3. Estimate the pallet information using the following guidelines:

  • Dimensions (1): use 72’’ (maximum height per Amazon requirements).
  • Weight (2): divide the cargo weight by number of pallets.
  • Approximate pallet count (3): divide the shipment’s volume (cbm) by 1.5 for an estimation.

Do not check the Stackable pallets box. If you check the Stackable pallets box, Amazon may send a truck that will only accommodate stackable pallets. If they aren’t stackable, then all your pallets won’t fit in the truck.

**Auto-pallet-calculating tools are available online, but be aware that these tools are not always accurate and often underestimate pallet details.**

4. Calculate the charges under Section 4: Shipping Charges using the following guidelines:

  • Freight ready date (1): choose any date.
  • Contact person (2): choose any contact.
  • Freight class (3): select 100.
  • Declared value (4): use the commercial value of your cargo.

5. Click Calculate. Do not accept the charges.
