Westbound has become more and more involved with Amazon retailers over several years and as such are able to offer a direct factory to Amazon Hub/Distribution centres service, across Europe and North America.

We found ourselves being approached by new Importers to answer questions on how importing works in general, and specifically for Amazon FBA retailers. We do not expect everyone to use us, although we are here to help with the entire package as a Logistics provider, we are also happy to offer guidance and opinions on how to avoid some pitfalls and “no-go areas”. We are here to help, and this page is dedicated to storing commonly asked questions from Amazon-specific related importers.

Westbound Logistics can help you with many services including the following flagships:

  • China to UK Weekly Seafreight LCL
  • China to Los Angeles Weekly Seafreight LCL
  • Essex, UK 3PL – Fulfilment for drip-feeding FBA and direct web sales.
  • Los Angeles, USA 3PL – Fulfilment for drip-feeding FBA and direct web sales.
