As the UK is set to leave the EU’s Single Market and Customs Union on 1 January, 2021, and a customs border will be established between the UK and the EU, Amazon will disable automated long-term storage removals on 31 December, 2020.
If you have automated long-term storage removals enabled, this change will require you to manually create removal orders for eligible inventory to avoid long-term storage fees. The change will apply to both automated long-term storage returns and disposals in all EU and UK fulfilment centres.
To check whether you have automated removals enabled, select Fulfilment by Amazon from the Settings drop-down menu and scroll down to Automated long-term storage removals settings.
You can use the Recommended Removal report or the Inventory Health report provided by Amazon to identify which inventory would be subject to a long-term storage fee on the next inventory cleanup date.
