The ShipBob story

Back in 2013, Dhruv and Divey (ShipBob’s founders) were doing what all the cool kids were doing: building a startup! Not ShipBob, mind you, but SnailMail Pics. This app allowed users to quickly send physical pictures to loved ones near and far.

Being technical types, Dhruv and Divey had automated the whole process except for the postage and packing aspect. They had to manually haul thousands of photographs to the post office every week, ultimately being banned from one Chicago post office that shall remain nameless…

While at that post office, they met other burgeoning online business owners who were also waiting in long lines to ship their goods by hand. It gave them an idea. Namely, to automate e-commerce fulfillment. Would business owners pay to have someone else take care of the storage, management, picking, packing and shipping of their products?

Turns out they would.

In creating ShipBob, the guys have built some incredible software (if we say so ourselves) that makes fulfilling e-commerce orders a breeze, opened four fulfillment centers strategically placed around the country and have allowed customers to scale at will whether they ship 100 orders a month or 100,000.

Not to mention focusing on their business, rather than how long it would take for their garage or spare room to fill up with incoming stock…

In less than 3 years, ShipBob has grown from working out of Dhruv’s apartment to over 300,000 square foot of warehouse space. But the goal remains the same: to make life easier, faster and better for small business owners.

We recently received $17.5M in funding to supercharge our growth, and the growth of our customers, even further. We can’t wait to share what we’re planning in the future; watch this space!
