We did a lot of research on where to go for fulfillment. We’d initially been thinking of some more local businesses — particularly because we’re in Sydney, and ShipBob’s only location so far is in Melbourne — but we knew we had plans to scale and grow overseas later on, and that was our biggest reason for choosing ShipBob.

Sell More Across Australia with ShipBob
Whether than solely relying on a local fulfillment provider, ShipBob offers access to growing fulfillment network, including a location in Australia, as well as other locations across the US, in the UK, Canada, and Ireland.
By outsourcing fulfillment to ShipBob, you save time and money while selling more internationally. With ShipBob, you have the option to choose what locations to store inventory in. From there, you can bulk shop inventory to us and we’ll take care of the rest.
No matter if you bulk ship inventory to our Melbourne-based location or any other location within our network, ShipBob’s warehouse management system, SLAs, and support team provide the same level of world-class fulfillment, consistency, and transparency.
By distributing inventory across a global network, you significantly increase average order value and reduce cart abandonment rate.

Nathan Garrison, Co-Founder and CEO of Sharkbanz
Selling internationally isn’t easy, but ShipBob works with you to simplify the process.
When it comes to dealing with customs, import duties, and becoming a non-resident importer, ShipBob will walk you through the process of sending freight to any of our fulfillment centers. We’ll work with your current carrier or freight partners, or you can leverage ShipBob’s relationships with cross-border freight shipping specialists.
“As an Australian business, we’re excited to gain access to ShipBob’s fulfillment solutions in our home country. With physical distance, time zones, and regulatory differences always playing a factor when expanding internationally, finding a trusted 3PL years ago was definitely not easy.
However, with ShipBob’s easy-to-use, functional, and reliable software, as well as their knowledgeable, responsive team, ShipBob has done a stellar job of supporting our growth in North America, our largest market. We’re keen for and confident that they will bring the same expertise to Australia.”

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.
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 fulfillment center.
You can also distribute your inventory across ShipBob’s fulfillment centers 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 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.
