Use this operation to get unique shipping labels for the packages in all types of inbound shipments: Small Parcel, Less Than Truckload/Full Truckload (LTL/FTL), Amazon-partnered, or non-Amazon-partnered shipments. For Amazon-partnered, Small Parcel shipments, this operation returns carrier labels in addition to shipping labels.
The language of the address section of a shipping label is determined by the ShipFromAddress value for the shipment, which was specified with a previous call to the CreateInboundShipmentPlan operation. The language of the FC Prep instructions (if applicable) is determined by the marketplace of the Amazon fulfillment center receiving the shipment.
