We understand that using Amazon Freight services comes with its challenges.

01. Complexity in scheduling and tracking

Managing shipment schedules and tracking shipments with Amazon Freight can be quite intricate. Retailers frequently encounter challenges in efficiently scheduling pickups and deliveries, which can result in delays and interruptions in their supply chain.

02. Cost management

Despite Amazon Freight offering competitive rates, retailers may face unexpected expenses that affect their profitability. Additional charges like accessorials, detention fees, and surcharges can accumulate rapidly, posing a challenge for retailers in accurately forecasting their shipping costs.

03. Limited flexibility

Amazon Freight operates within a structured framework that may restrict retailers’ ability to manage shipments with ease. Retailers may encounter challenges due to Amazon’s predetermined delivery schedules and routing preferences, making it difficult to cater to specific customer requests or refine their shipping strategies.
