Matic Chain & Amazon Global Logistics
What Is Amazon Global Logistics?
Amazon Global Logistics (AGL) is Amazon’s proprietary freight services. It lets you import directly from your supplier in China to different Amazon marketplaces without having to work with a third-party logistics service provider.
Traditionally, if you’re importing from Asia, you will have to work with service providers to move your inventory from one touch point to another up until it gets checked into an Amazon warehouse. On paper, Amazon Global Logistics reduces the number of touch points in your supply chain, which normally include third-party freight forwarders and 3PLs, in order to minimize your lead time and get your inventory checked in much faster.
