What are the benefits of shipping with Amazon Freight?
Shippers can leverage Amazon's supply chain capabilities and technology, in addition to 30,000+ Amazon-owned trailers and 30,000+ trusted carriers to meet your shipping needs. We offer the dependability, reliability, tracking, and high performance you deserve from your shipping partner. Our network runs 24/7, 365 days a year, and as a part of Earth's most customer-centric company, we've built easy-to-use solutions to ensure visibility from quote to payment.
What services are available for shippers?
We provide full truckload services using 53’ dry van equipment. Spot shipments are live loaded at pickup and live unloaded at your delivery destination. Additional services include straps. Our online tools allow all shippers to manage their loads on demand. We offer dedicated account managers and 24/7 customer support from our operations specialists.

Today, we do not support multi-stop shipments, intermodal, ocean, personal shipments, flatbed, LTL, small parcel, residential, drayage, or offer lift gates.

For shippers interested in contractual pricing, we can accommodate prepositioning trailers at pickup facilities and dropping trailers upon delivery (drop-and-hook services). For more information, please contact us at freight-sales@amazon.com.
Where can I ship?
We offer coverage across thousands of lanes throughout the US, in areas where Amazon operates, thanks to our carrier network and Universal Trailer Pool.
