EP 4: Logistics and Amazon - Moving to LTL and FTL Shipments

In this episode, Eddie Levine of HubDub and Wholesale Breakthrough shares with us about the savings small to mediums sized companies can rack up when they move to LTL and FTL shipments.   While using small parcel shipments with Amazon can give you a much lower rate than shipping products independently.

However, if you have the volume, moving to LTL (Less Than Truckload) or FTL (Full Truck Load) can allow you to save a very significant amount in the cost of shipping your goods to Amazon.  Eddie shares some examples of when it is worthwhile to move to LTL or FTL shipments.  He also shares some common pitfalls when it comes to LTL and FTL shipments to Amazon.

Especially as dimensional rate shipping and the removal of FedEx as an option for shipping for Amazon more sellers have been looking at moving to alternate shipping methods for their goods being sold via Amazon’s FBA program.

Amazon lays out all of the requirements for palletized shipments to Amazon. On that same page, they have a very helpful video on how to build a pallet.
