Step 6 - Send shipment tracking numbers to Amazon

When you use an Amazon-partnered carrier for an inbound shipment, the carrier provides your shipment tracking numbers to Amazon as part of the process. However, even if you are not using an Amazon-partnered carrier for your inbound shipments, Amazon recommends that you send us the shipment tracking numbers for your inbound shipment. Providing this information helps Amazon process your inbound shipment at the Amazon fulfillment center faster and more accurately.

To send shipment tracking numbers to Amazon

  1. Call the PutTransportContent operation from the Fulfillment Inbound Shipment API section.
  2. Include your shipment tracking numbers using the TrackingId parameter. Example:
    &TransportDetails.NonPartneredSmallParcelData.PackageList.member.1.TrackingId=A135KKEKWF1J5666

Getting the shipment status of non-Amazon-partnered Small Parcel shipments

After sending shipment tracking numbers for a non-Amazon-partnered Small Parcel shipment to Amazon, you can get the shipment status by calling the GetTransportContent operation.

To get the shipment status for your non-Amazon-partnered Small Parcel shipment

  1. Call the PutTransportContent operation. This provides your shipment tracking numbers to Amazon.
  2. Call the GetTransportContent operation. Amazon returns shipment status in the PackageStatus response element.
