Optimize peak storage with Capacity Manager and AWD

Announcement reposted from Amazon United States:

Get a jump start on your holiday inventory strategy with Capacity Manager and Amazon Warehousing & Distribution (AWD). These tools can be used separately, or together, to create a customized storage plan during the busiest time of year.

First, Capacity Manager gives you access to extra fulfillment center storage for your fast-selling products—generally those that sell in less than four weeks.

You can bid on extra storage by paying a reservation fee that you specify. Performance credits earned from the sales generated using the extra capacity can offset up to 100% of the reservation fee.

For inventory needing more than four weeks of storage, AWD is a low-cost solution with pay-as-you-go pricing. We’ll automatically replenish your products from AWD to fulfillment centers to ensure you maintain the right inventory levels.

There are no additional fees for AWD during peak times, and inventory that’s auto-replenished from AWD doesn’t count towards your Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) capacity limits.

You can get up to a 25% discount off the base rate for AWD for a limited time. This discount will be applied automatically and will appear on your monthly fee report in Seller Central. The promotion ends September 30, 2024, and is subject to AWD Promotions Terms & Conditions.
