Some common issues that may result in the refusal of inventory at the fulfillment center include shipments that are larger than expected, not labeled properly, violate policy, damaged, or sent to the wrong fulfillment center.

You cannot refuse or return shipments that are returned to you without first contacting Amazon. Shipments that you refuse or return without first contacting Amazon may be refused a second time, and any costs incurred will be at your expense.
Make sure your distributor has the correct Amazon FBA Box ID labels for your shipment. You can grant limited access to your seller account to access labels. For more information, see Set user permissions.
In addition, your distributor must adhere to all Amazon shipment requirements.
When you select a carrier, verify that the delivery confirmation system can be used.

Delivery to Amazon fulfillment centers without hiring a courier company is prohibited. A truck size of 2 tons or above is recommended. You must schedule a delivery appointment in advance if you are using a non-registered carrier company or chartered vehicle. To schedule a delivery appointment, see the Carrier Central.
