To register your shipment correctly, we need the following data:

  2. Number of pallets: how many pallets are in your shipment. This is specified in the CARP system as ‘pallet count’.
  3. Number of boxes/parcels: how many boxes are on a pallet. This is specified in the CARP system as ‘carton count’.
  4. Number of units: how many units are in a box? This is specified in the CARP system as ‘unit count’.
  5. PO number (a.k.a. FBA reference) with an FBA or ASN number.
  6. Where can we load the goods?
  7. Do the goods meet the conditions set by Amazon?
  8. When are the goods ready for pick-up?

FBA stands for ‘fulfilment by Amazon’. It means that as soon as Amazon receives your shipment, Amazon ensures that your products are shipped to the customer. An FBA number contains information about your shipment, such as weight, number of boxes shipped, etc.

An ASN number stands for ‘advance shipment notice’. These documents contain important information about your shipment, such as delivery time and date, order information, location data, product details, pallet codes, information from your transport company, etc.

A BOL (bill of lading) number refers to copies of bills of lading or air waybills for the products you are shipping. This includes what has been shipped, weight, and the number of boxes. You must have a copy of the original bills of lading or air waybills that specify the site of delivery as proof of the final destination. A BOL number is an FBA or ASN number.

PO stands for ‘purchase order’. You can use this number to track and refer to your shipment. A PO number is also called an FBA reference.
