What is Amazon fba head sea freight?FBA head sea freight is to send goods to Amazon warehouse by sea.
FBA shipping provides two modes: sea freight acceleration (sea freight + express), sea freight plus card (sea freight + truck transportation), FBA inventory management (automatic inventory management, prompt replenishment time).
2. Sea freight plus card (sea freight + truck transportation): tax is not included in double clearance, and tariffs are paid according to the tax bill. After the goods arrive at the port for customs clearance and release, they will be transported to the destination by train, and then delivered by truck to the corresponding Amazon warehouse.
Before delivery, you must confirm with the cooperative logistics provider whether your goods can go. Inflammable and explosive products, military supplies, medical equipment, imitation brands, adult products and batteries exceeding 100 watts are generally not accepted for transport.
The shipping company can carry your goods, and you need to check which certifications your goods need in the exporting country to avoid being detained by the customs.
After this aspect is ready, you can book the space with the freight forwarder to the shipping company, and then issue the SO order, usually two to three days before loading the container, and then you can prepare the customs declaration materials.
Loading: Choose a local freight forwarding company that can pick up the goods for free, which can save a delivery fee. Packing should be done in advance before packing, and the number of pieces, weight, squares, and boards must be determined before packing, so as to avoid the difference between the freight forwarding company and its own measurement, and prepare the packing list. Then make an appointment with the freight forwarding company to pick up the goods.
Customs declaration: Customs declaration is divided into tax refund declaration and payment declaration. Only enterprises with import and export rights and companies that have signed paperless customs declaration at the electronic port can apply for tax refund declaration.
Generally, the materials that must be prepared are: foreign trade contract, invoice, packing list, customs declaration power of attorney (Ningbo, Shanghai and Guangzhou do not need it), customs declaration draft (including declaration elements), special documents (outbound goods customs clearance form, export license, etc.). If the materials are not fully prepared or need to be replenished, the freight forwarding company will notify you, and the materials must be replenished in time to ensure that the goods can be sent out normally.
Customs clearance: It is a key step that cannot be ignored in the first journey of FBA, and it depends on whether your goods can reach FBA smoothly.
The seller needs to find a freight forwarding company with strong customs clearance ability and a special customs clearance team overseas, and a company that does not accept contraband casually.
