Amazon FBA Inventory Management

Amazon FBA inventory management doesn’t get discussed that often but poor inventory management can cost your business a lot in lost profits. Let me briefly explain.

Amazon FBA Inventory Management Lead Times

Your lead times will depend on a few factors:

1. Manufacturer: If a manufacturer is busy it will take them longer to make your products. I have found manufacturers to have longer lead times from July – October as they prepare for Q4 orders. Also take into consideration Chinese holidays where factory’s completely shut down for a week or more. The main holiday being the Chinese new year in February.

2. Import destination: US vs UK.

3. method of shipping: Air Vs Sea.

4. Direct Vs Non-direct to FBA.

Below are some timescale estimates that you should take into consideration when re-ordering inventory.

Manufacturer: 30-50 days

US by Air: 8-10 days
US by Sea: 20 – 30 days

UK by Air:10-15 days
UK by Sea: 30-40 days
