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
- Call the PutTransportContent
operation from the Fulfillment Inbound Shipment API section.
- Include your shipment tracking numbers using the TrackingId
