With “Fulfillment by Amazon”, better known as Amazon FBA, the marketplace allows you to sell your own label products via its platform and let Amazon store your products in their fulfillment centers, where they pick, pack, ship, and provide customer service for you.

FreightHub takes care of the transportation of your goods from the factory to the Amazon warehouse – including all documentation as well as customs clearance. We make sure that your shipment is packed, palletized and labeled according to Amazon’s standards.

You will receive updates on your shipments’ progress and your dedicated, experienced Operations Manager will pro-actively handle any issues that might occur.
