What Are Smalls/High Piece? Amazon loads, both returns and FC, differ by the size of the items contained. Smalls/High Piece loads typically have thousands of items, most being the size of a toaster oven or smaller. They contain many categories but tend to be heavier in Electronics, Housewares, Groceries, Books, Health & Beauty, Office Products, Tools, and Toys than loads with larger items.

What Are FC Loads?

Amazon fulfillment centers are distribution facilities for 3rd party products. If "Bob's Widgets" wants to sell their widgets on Amazon, they send them to an FC, where Amazon will ship the widget to the customer when it sells. If, however, something isn't pristine about the product like box-damage, improper packaging or tagging, or the item is lost in inventory and later found, Amazon will pull the item and put it on an FC truckload. There is usually a small number of online returns included in these loads, typically amounting to less than 10% of the load. Consequently, FC loads tend to have lower loss rates than regular online returns. Most of what you usually deal with is box-damage and repackaging issues.
