Offering 2 day fulfillment for e-commerce orders can make for happier customers and more sales. Online shoppers expect 2 day fulfillment on all orders, no matter where you are shipping from. According to Statista, 26% of shoppers drop off due to slow delivery times. If you are self-fulfilling or working with a traditional dropshipper or 3PL, you might not be able to offer 2 day fulfillment to your customers, especially without it costing extremely high amounts.
Luckily, working with a technology-enabled fulfillment provider like ShipBob can help you offer 2 day fulfillment to your customers at an affordable price. A technology-enabled fulfillment provider leverages data and technology to optimize the fulfillment process for the merchant, the end customer, and the fulfillment provider.

Network of fulfillment centers

ShipBob can analyze your customers’ locations and split inventory across any of ShipBob’s fulfillment centers to enable faster, less expensive delivery.

This means that you are able to offer the fast shipping times that customers expect without having to charge customers extremely high shipping costs or absorb the costs yourself.
