Notes:

  • *Amazon EDI Support have in the past advised against sending the MustArriveByDate parameter; this can narrow the available couriers returned and may therefore result in no couriers being available.
  • After setting up the first courier service that uses the ‘Amazon Logistics Neo’ Export Type, it is possible to then set up a second courier service with the same Export Type and then use the Copy From button in the right click > Configure… options on the second service to copy the settings from the first one.
