What is baby product fulfilment?
Baby product retail fulfilment involves the picking, packing, and shipping process of items such as feeding accessories, baby food, toys, diapers, baby body care products, and more.
The baby products ecommerce industry also expanded greatly, making it easy for busy parents to stay stocked on essential baby products. Breastfeeding equipment ( sterilizers, packaged baby food, and pumps) are also in high demand.
ShipBob’s order fulfilment process
ShipBob takes care of the entire order fulfilment process for you, so you can save time, money, and headaches. Here’s an overview of ShipBob’s proven fulfilment process.
Step 1: Receiving
Once you fill out a Warehouse Receiving Order (WRO), which includes an overview of what we’re receiving, you can ship your inventory to one or more of our fulfilment centres to be stored. Each SKU has a separate dedicated storage location, either on a shelf, in a bin, or on a pallet.
Step 2: Picking and packing
As soon as an order is placed on your online store, ShipBob automatically receives the order and it is assigned to a warehouse picking team or a picker. Our picking team receives a picking list of the items, quantities, and storage locations at the facility to collect the ordered products from their respective locations.
For packing, we offer standard packing materials — brown boxes, yellow bubble mailers, white poly bags, packing tape, and dunnage — at no extra cost. For a more custom solution, we also allow the use of custom packaging.
Step 3: Shipping
ShipBob offers volume shipping discounts from major couriers such as FedEx, DHL, USPS, and UPS. Last-mile delivery is one of the most expensive parts of the fulfilment process, so shipping discounts can save your business lots of money in the long run.

“Before partnering with ShipBob for order fulfilment, we had a lot of trouble getting visibility into inventory movement. We worked with some large fulfilment providers as well as some smaller 3PLs, and none of them gave us unified data, let us look at inventory holistically, or enabled us to see which inventory was moving and where. I got to a point where I just couldn’t operate like that any more.
Partnering with ShipBob, we joined their Inventory Placement Program, which helps us distribute our inventory to strategic hubs across the US so we don’t have to manage multi-location inbound shipments or identify the most optimal fulfilment centre locations ourselves. This finally gave us the visibility and analytics we were looking for.”
