What is Amazon's heavy and bulky shipping template?

Whether it's a sofa, washing machine or sports equipment, easy and effective planning improves the customer experience when it comes to heavy and bulky deliveries. By ensuring that customers are home to receive their deliveries, you can save time and expense from unsuccessful deliveries. The Heavy and Bulky programme offers a shipping template with two shipping options
Arranged delivery
Arranged delivery
With this shipping option, customers are informed on the product and checkout page that they will be contacted to arrange delivery and that they must update their phone number before completing their order. You or your courier company will contact the customer by phone, text or email to arrange delivery.
Scheduled delivery
Scheduled delivery
With this shipping option, customers can choose a preferred delivery date or delivery time from a calendar at checkout. You can set up the calendar in advance with available delivery dates and time slots. At checkout, customers can also update their phone number, in case you want to contact them on the day of delivery. Delivery includes home delivery.

Why use the heavy and bulky shipping template?
