It creates FBA shipping orders in the background. There will be two choices in the inventory configuration option In inventory place option , it said the inventory placement services, distributed inventory place (sub-warehouse). The default setting is to split the warehouse.

1. Why Amazon default split warehouse ?

Amazon combined with the seller's product type to do a comprehensive analysis according to the conditions of each FBA warehouse facilities, temperature, humidity and other factors, then each product will be assigned to the most appropriate FBA warehouse. 

2. It will save Amazon FBA delivery fee

Amazon distributed the seller's inventory to multiple Amazon operating centers in order to save itself money. Buyers are able to save on FBA delivery costs while purchased products had compared to the case where the inventory is far away.

3. To calculate fees for the co-location & sub-location
