GetTransportContent

Returns current transportation information about an inbound shipment.

Description

The GetTransportContent operation returns current transportation information about an inbound shipment. This includes the current workflow status for shipments by Amazon-partnered carriers and the current workflow status for individual Small Parcel Delivery packages as they are processed by the Amazon fulfillment center. This also includes the PartneredEstimate response element, which indicates the estimated shipping cost for an inbound shipment by an Amazon-partnered carrier. Note that PartneredEstimate will not be returned unless the TransportStatus value of the inbound shipment is ESTIMATED, CONFIRMING, or CONFIRMED. For more information, see Using an Amazon-partnered carrier for your inbound shipment in the MWS for FBA Sellers guide.

Availability

This operation is available in all marketplaces except Brazil.
