Amazon Type H is for individually packaged TV’s and monitors that are more than 150 pounds (68 kg) with a girth more than 165 inches (4.19 m). The shipping method for these products is less than truckload (LTL) or individually-packaged products. Type H products use 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 H products qualify for Amazon SIOC status and are tested based on the ISTA 6 SIOC Type H test sequence outlined below. It is important to keep in mind that TVs and monitors are considered non-fragile products.
