The Most Complete Logistics Calendar for the 2018 Peak Season

I was told that the Amazon sellers were all greeting each other like this when they met:

Hey, did you file your Deal for peak season? What kind of Deal did you make?

Indeed, who wants to miss something as important as the peak season, seckill activity? However, after the Deal is declared, warehousing is another particularly important thing you must consider. You must ship the goods to Amazon FBA’s warehouse within the specified time! The shipping calendar is all ready for you; promise to keep these DDL in mind!

The shipping calendar you must know.

Europe: The latest entry date of FBA is November 2, 2018.

The United States: The latest entry date of FBA is November 5, 2018.

Considering that Q4 is the peak shipping season for cross-border e-commerce and traditional trade, it is suggested that sellers prepare the goods and arrange the shipment in advance.

The time of transporting from China to Amazon operation center is broken down as follows:

The United States

1.    Maritime transportation

26 natural days in the western United States; 35 natural days in the central; 40 natural days in the east

2. Air transportation

Eight natural days in the western United States after taking delivery; East/central, nine natural days

We suggest that the corresponding shipping schedule should be arranged as follows.

Maritime transportation

1.    The goods entering the warehouse in the west of the United States shall be shipped no later than October 10th.

2.    The goods entering the US central warehouse shall be shipped no later than October 1st.

3.    The goods entering the warehouse in the east of the United States shall be shipped no later than September 26th.

Air transportation

1.    The loading time of goods entering the west American warehouse should not be later than October 28th.

2.    For the goods entering the central/eastern warehouse, the loading time should not be later than October 27th.

Europe

1.    Maritime transportation: 45 natural days after sailing

2.    Air transportation: 10 natural days after delivery

We suggest that the corresponding shipping schedule should be arranged as follows.

Maritime transportation: The delivery time should be not later than September 18th.

Air transportation: The warehousing time at the port of departure should be not later than October 23rd.

To make it clear, here is the Amazon global logistics calendar table.

September 18: The latest shipping time for goods entering European warehouse

September 26: The latest shipping time for goods entering the US east warehouse

October 1st: The latest shipping time for goods entering the US central warehouse

October 10: The latest shipping time for goods entering the US west warehouse

October 23: The latest airfreight time for goods entering European warehouse

October 27: The latest airfreight time for goods entering the US central or east warehouse

October 28: The latest airfreight time for goods entering the US west warehouse

November 2: The latest entry time of FBA of European station

November 5: The latest entry time of FBA of US station

PS: The time on the table above is only meant for seller reference. The specific delivery time will be determined depending on the actual situation of each seller. Some of the factors to affect delivery time include the departure, the specific location of the Amazon operation center, and the actual situation of existing logistics providers.

There are also other factors that include the warehouse explosion, port clearance, customs inspection, etc., which may extend the transport time. We strongly suggest that you consider these factors when making the cargo preparation plan and reserve more transport time.

Don’t let logistics hold you back in the run-up to the peak season.

In addition to the time of warehousing, many logistics problems can disrupt your preparation.  These include:

1.    Urgent shipment in the peak season but the airline tells you there is no freight space.

2.    The goods were prepared in advance and transported by sea but were dumped by the shipping company.

3.    Port congestion and lack of trailers, cabinets, and truck drivers.

4.    Because of the FBA warehouse explosion, you have to wait in line.

After a year of careful preparation, this is your time to make profits. However, sellers have to worry about running out of goods in the middle of the peak season. Why, because they had no reliable logistics suppliers. If sellers run out of goods, they will be heartbroken! So what do you do this year? Here is the plan.

The greatest worries for sellers in the peak season are the logistics to do with time and reliability.

Therefore, it is particularly important to find suppliers who can provide safe, reliable and stable logistics and transportation services for sellers during the peak season.
