Amazon Type E is for less than truckload (LTL) or individually-packaged products that are 100 pounds (45 kg) or greater or have a girth greater than 165 inches (4.19 m). The shipping method for these products is the standard handling method. The standard handling method, also referenced as floor loaded, is for individual packaged-products that are received at an Amazon.com Fulfillment Center with no pallet or with multiple packaged products on a single pallet and are intended to ship to the end consumer without a pallet. Type E products qualify for Amazon SIOC status and are tested based on the ISTA 6 SIOC Type E test sequence outlined below.
