Inbounding costs eat into your margins and prevent you (and other sellers!) from inbounding more frequently. To reduce inbounding costs, Deliverr is beta testing a new program, Shipment Forwarding.
Shipment forwarding allows you to inbound all shipments in a shipping plan to the nearest Deliverr cross-dock. The cross-dock then 'forwards' your shipments to their final destinations, at no cost to you! FAQs at bottom of this article.

Do I still have to create 4 shipments even though I'm shipping to 1 location?
Yes, while you are shipping all shipments to 1 location, you must still package each shipment separately, so that each shipment can be forwarded to its final destination.
If I'm inbounding via freight, can I mix boxes from different shipments onto fewer pallets to save costs?
Yes, you can do this! The Deliverr cross-dock will break pallets down to separate the mixed boxes and sort boxes by their final destinations.
How long will it take for my inventory to be available for sale?
Starting when a shipment arrives at the Deliverr cross-dock location, it will take 10-14 business days for that shipment to be received at the final destination (i.e. the Deliverr fulfillment center).
What if I need my shipments received faster than 10-14 business days?
If your priority is speed, then select you want your inventory "received in 2 business days", and Deliverr will generate a ship-to-4-locations shipping plan.
