Fire and Freight Forwarding

I know Amazon doesn't usually have any problems with shipping items to freight forwarding services (Services where they give you an address in the US, Amazon ships there, they ship it abroad to the country you're in).
Now, the kindle fire says "US only", and they'll only take orders for it if both your shipping and billing addresses are in the US, but will they ship to a freight forwarder?
How about the kindles with special offers?

I can't think of any reason why not. As long as you have both a US billing and US shipping address, it should work. I know mine is going to Pony Express (a "mailbox" location in Washington state.) True, they're not forwarding it to me, I'll be picking it up. But the forwarding or not is entirely outside of what Amazon knows (or cares) about.

Note, however, that many of the functions of the Kindle Fire require a US IP address.

I think the issue is that streaming (for Prime members) and the apps are not available to international users yet.

Correct. And Amazon doesn't have the rights for them in non-US countries. Though I certainly wish they'd enable Prime in Canada, even if only for the shipping.

I have a ship box in the USA and have had many Amazon deliveries to it. They are signed for - it is the USPS/UPS who delivers it to the ship box so i suspect Amazon would not even be aware of it.
