Note: By default, when you create a shipping plan, your shipment may be divided into multiple shipments, each directed to a different fulfillment center. The fulfillment centers are selected based on the products you're shipping and where you are shipping from. With your inventory spread across multiple fulfillment centers across the country, customers who buy your products can get them delivered faster than they would if your inventory was located farther away.

Pan-European FBA: How it works
The Pan-European FBA program allows you to fulfil offers in all European marketplaces from one inventory pool without incurring per-unit cross-border fulfilment fees for the European Fulfilment Network. Amazon will distribute your inventory across the European Fulfilment Network at no additional cost. You can track your Pan-European FBA offers using all standard reports and tools in Seller Central.
Pan-European FBA will become active for a product only after you create an active FBA offer in all the Amazon European marketplaces listed as required on the Pan-European FBA Inventory page in your Selling on Amazon account.
