Bielefeld Fulfilment Solutions
Do run an online business operated in Bielefeld, Germany? Or are you looking to launch into the German market?
ShipBob operates a global network of fulfilment centres, including a location in Poland, so you can reach Polish and German customers in 1 business day.
Rather than looking for a fulfilment centre in Bielefeld, you can utilise ShipBob’s centralised EU fulfilment centre and gain access to other locations in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia.
Read on to learn about ShipBob’s international shipping solutions for Bielefeld-based businesses and global brands.
When I found out ShipBob was expanding into both Canada and Europe, I knew we wanted to expand our physical footprint with them. This would offer us the ability to reduce taxes and tariffs that come with international shipping. Now, Canadian-based orders will see a large reduction in shipping costs.

Ship from multiple fulfilment centres
With ShipBob, you can choose to ship from any of our global fulfilment centres.
By checking your data, seeing where your customers live, and storing your inventory at fulfilment centres closer to your customers, you can speed up last-mile delivery and reduce shipping costs.
No matter where you operate your business (whether in Bielefeld, Germany or anywhere else in the world), you can bulk-ship your inventory to different fulfilment locations in various countries, and we’ll distribute your products from there and you can ship international orders domestically.
With ShipBob’s European fulfilment centre located near the border of Germany, ShipBob customers can reach Polish and German customers in 1 business day, France in 2-3 days and Spain within 4-5 days.
Why partner with an international 3PL?
With ShipBob, can get access to the necessary infrastructure and technology needed to go global, and you choose the locations to store inventory in based on where your customers are located, so you can deliver to international customers faster.
ShipBob provides full visibility into the order and inventory management process and you can track it all from one dashboard, so you can make informed decisions on how to optimise your supply chain.
You can outsource fulfilment, sell on multiple channels, and serve customers across the globe without losing oversight of your logistics operations.
From ShipBob’s best-in-class fulfilment platform, you can view real-time inventory levels, order information and shipping details across all physical locations and sales channels using one login.
Having this level of visibility takes the complexity out of cross-border shipping by helping to avoid additional customs and import duty requirements, which can cause frustration for both you and your customer.
“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.”

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.
