Lifestyle brand fulfilment?
From apparel to sports, to clubs and hobbies, lifestyle brands give customers a feeling of belonging.
Fulfiling lifestyle brands requires flexible fulfilment, whether it’s:
- Storing apparel inventory by size and style in a fulfilment centre
- Picking and packing items that are small, heavy, or large
- Offering subscription fulfilment, B2B fulfilment, or other value-added services to better serve lifestyle brands
ShipBob’s order fulfilment process
ShipBob partners with a wide range of lifestyle brands to help optimise their order fulfilment process.
Once we receive your inventory at one or more of our fulfilment centre locations, it is then stored in our warehouse until items are ready to be fulfiled.
Once orders are placed on your online store, our fulfilment experts pick and pack items and ship orders as fast as possible. We partner with top shipping couriers and negotiate bulk shipping rates to pass the savings on to you and your customers.
“Because we sell a high-quality anti-aging product, we want to provide high-quality service throughout the whole customer experience — and that includes a quick and smooth delivery that shoppers have come to expect. ShipBob’s 2-Day Express ship option lets us meet these expectations for US customers, and compete with the likes of Amazon for speedy fulfilment.”Maria Osorio, Logistics and Operations Director at Oxford Healthspan
Thanks to ShipBob’s network of global fulfilment centres, you can keep your inventory closer to end customers.
ShipBob’s fulfilment platform gives merchants insight into their data in real time, so you can track inventory activity across fulfilment centre locations. Our analytic tool provides suggestions for how to optimise your inventory distribution based on historical data to reduce transit times and cut down on shipping costs.
“It’s fun to see orders shipping out instantaneously. I love how fast and efficient ShipBob is. Their shipping costs are very reasonable, and their platform makes fulfilment feel so easy.”Harley Abrams, Operations Manager of SuperSpeed Golf, LLC
ShipBob’s proprietary fulfilment platform lets you manage, edit, and customise orders, track real-time stock levels from any location, and receive notifications when you need to reorder inventory — all at no extra cost for unlimited users.
“We’ve seen an uplift in conversions by offering free shipping thresholds and 2-day shipping. Since switching to ShipBob from our previous 3PL, our fulfilment cost on comparable orders went down by 25%.”Michael Peters, VP of E-Commerce Operations at TB12
With ShipBob’s network of fulfilment centres, you can strategically split your inventory across our locations to get your products from point A to point B more quickly and affordably. Storing inventory near your customers helps reduce the shipping zones and costs associated with shipping orders to faraway destinations.
Distributed inventory also helps you stay competitive by offering fast shipping to your customers. When an order is placed, ShipBob’s algorithm automatically selects the warehouse and courier that will give you the quickest turnaround at the best price. This strategy has helped our merchants bring 13% savings to their bottom line.
100% Coverage Across the Continental US
If you’re looking to expand into the United States, ShipBob has 2-Day Express Shipping that provides 100% coverage in the continental US from even just one fulfilment centre.
You can also distribute your inventory across ShipBob’s fulfilment centres across all regions of the United States. We leave it up to you to decide where you want us to store your inventory.
At ShipBob, we track your orders from A to Z. Filter orders by status, search for specific orders, see a quick timeline view of where your order is in the fulfilment process (e.g. when an order is picked, packed, or shipped), easily find shipping-related information (e.g., weights, dimensions, or courier service), and get a quick snapshot of any orders that require action.
With order management software for your direct-to-consumer and wholesale shipments, you can manage subscriptions, make changes to your orders post-purchase, map your store’s shipping options to ShipBob, and automatically share tracking information with your customers.
At ShipBob, we empower merchants to manage their inventory with the right tools and guidance. It’s easy to view the status of inventory and quantity on hand across locations at any point in time, identify slow-moving inventory with high storage costs, and gain insights into the performance of units sold over time by channel.
Our inventory management software helps you set reminders to proactively replenish inventory with reorder notifications, bundle your products for promotions, make inventory transfer requests, and much more.
Reporting and analytics
To provide you with visibility into our operations and performance, and also hold ourselves accountable, ShipBob’s free analytics tool is packed with charts to help you with everything from year-end reporting, to better supply chain decision-making.
Data can be a competitive advantage, and our reports show an analysis of which fulfilment centres you should stock, days of inventory left before you run out, impact of promotions on stock levels, each shipping method’s average cart value, shipping cost, and days in transit, your fulfilment cost per order, storage cost per unit, and much more.
End-to-end customer experience
We care about the customer experience as much as you and strive to be an extension of your team. From custom branded boxes to free plain packaging, ShipBob works with you to provide the unboxing experience you want. We also help you offer the fastest, most cost-effective shipping options to meet your customers’ expectations.
As soon as an order ships, tracking is pushed back to your store. We also offer return management services, allowing customers to generate return shipping labels and track returns, while getting your products processed and back into your available inventory as efficiently as possible.
