China Fulfillment Solutions
The ecommerce market in China is expected to reach $3.3 billion by 2025.
Serving customers in China is a great way to generate more sales and expand customer reach.
But shipping to China can be costly and complex, holding businesses back from taking their brands global.
That’s where ShipBob comes in. ShipBob can help simplify the cross-border shipping process so you can ship orders to China with ease.
Read on to learn about ShipBob’s international shipping capabilities.
We did a lot of research on where to go for fulfillment. We’d initially been thinking of some more local businesses, but we knew we had plans to scale and grow overseas later on, and that was our biggest reason for choosing ShipBob.

Serve More Customers in China
International selling can be tricky and costly for many ecommerce businesses.
You have to worry about additional documentation and fees, including customs, import duties, and order tracking capabilities when a package leaves one country and enters another.
But when you partner with ShipBob, all your global shipping needs are taken care of. With ShipBob, you can ship international orders to China while saving time and reducing costs.
Our best-in-class cloud shipping technology is designed to optimize and automate the shipping process.
We also provide merchants with real-time updates on inventory stock levels, orders being processed, and international tracking for orders that have shipped via UPS, DHL, and FedEx.
ShipBob is a best-in-class international fulfillment provider.
ShipBob’s omnichannel fulfillment solution gives you more visibility, transparency, and consistency than the average 3PL, so you can manage your ecommerce supply chain while spending less time on logistics.
To better serve international customers, you also have the advantage to store inventory in multiple fulfillment center locations across the world: the US, the UK, Europe, Australia, and Canada (with more ShipBob locations being added).
When an order comes in from China, the order will be automatically routed to the nearest location to optimize cost and delivery times.
“By distributing our inventory across these countries and regions, all of our customers are able to get their orders much faster while paying reasonable domestic shipping rates.
We want to continue to spread our brand internationally and are glad that more of our customer base can get better shipping rates and delivery times. We’re still a small operation, but with ShipBob we can be a more global company.”

With ShipBob’s network of fulfillment centers, 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 carrier that will give you the quickest turnaround at the best price. This strategy has helped our merchants bring 13% savings to their bottom line.
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 fulfillment process (e.g. when an order is picked, packed, or shipped), easily find shipping-related information (e.g., weights, dimensions, or carrier 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.
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 fulfillment centers 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 fulfillment 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.
