England Fulfilment Centre
Order fulfilment is a time-consuming process: managing inventory, picking and packing orders, shipping packages, and managing returns can take you away from focusing on business growth.
ShipBob is a 3PL with a global network of fulfilment centres powered by best-in-class fulfilment technology. With locations across the globe, including our Manchester and Birmingham fulfilment centres, our extensive distribution network and technology enables cheaper and faster shipping — no matter where your customers are located.
We found that sending inventory to Europe involved less paperwork and was faster than expected. The process of getting inventory sent to ShipBob’s fulfilment centre location in Ireland was very streamlined.

Distribute your inventory for more efficient shipping
With ShipBob, you can split inventory across multiple fulfilment centres across the globe. You can choose the ShipBob fulfilment centres that are closest to your customer base and bulk-ship your inventory to them. From there, picking lists are generated automatically when an order is placed, and our professionals pick, pack and ship the order.
Distributing inventory across a global fulfilment network lowers the barrier of entry to shipping internationally. If your business is based in the US and you want to ship to England, you just ship your inventory to our Manchester fulfilment centre or Birmingham fulfilment centre, and we distribute it from there: no need for each customer order to cross the Atlantic and pass through customs.
ShipBob’s platform also comes with built-in inventory and order management software that makes managing the fulfilment process easy. From the ShipBob dashboard, you can search for orders, track packages, view inventory counts, add SKUs, and set reorder points so you never run out of product. We handle the ins and outs of fulfilment so you can focus on growing your business.
How ShipBob improves your fulfilment and logistics
Save on fulfilment costs
Coffee creamer brand Prymal joined ShipBob in 2019 and was quickly able to save $8,000 per month on fulfilment costs, while at the same time achieving 4x growth.
Improve your conversion rate
Not only was BAKblade able to scale internationally by partnering with ShipBob, but they find the predictable pricing structure to be helpful as well.
Store, ship, and grow internationally
Sunglasses brand Ombraz distributed their inventory across 3 fulfilment centres in two different countries. This has allowed them to ship to 55 countries on seven continents.
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.
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.
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.
