Most ecommerce businesses stick to shipping domestically because it’s simpler, cheaper, and more convenient to target potential customers closer to home. But one of the advantages of ecommerce is that you can reach customers all over the world.

Shipping across borders puts you at a disadvantage compared to domestic businesses because shipping costs are much higher and last-mile delivery are significantly longer. To add to the complexity of navigating international shipping, including customs and import duties, and you can see why many ecommerce businesses opt out of growing their business internationally. But what if you could access international markets by partnering with an international fulfilment partner?

ShipBob is a third-party logistics (3PL) company with a network of fulfilment centres across the globe. US-based businesses can ship to the Netherlands with ease (or vice versa). Not only does ShipBob handle all the ins and outs of order fulfilment, but you can bulk ship your inventory to our fulfilment centres (including our location in the Netherlands) and we’ll distribute from there, rather than having to ship each individual order across the Atlantic. 

The result is that you can ship faster and cheaper to all your customers.

“I’ve also been fortunate to ship orders to customers from around the world. The process of shipping internationally to optimise costs has been easy. There’s no difference on my website for international shipping except adding tariff codes on products. Otherwise ShipBob handles everything for me. Best of all, the price that ShipBob charges to ship internationally is less than it costs for me to print a USPS label myself.”

Anastasia Allison, founder of Kula Cloth

3PL Services in the Netherlands

Shipping to the Netherlands is easy with ShipBob: we have a fulfilment centre location in Europe and plenty of experience in navigating international fulfilment. Here’s how fulfilment with ShipBob works:

  • Sync your store with our technology. This simple process can be completed from your ShipBob dashboard in just a few minutes.
  • Then, ship your inventory to the optimal ShipBob fulfilment centres based on where your customers live.
  • ShipBob handles everything from there, from the moment an order is placed to when the package is delivered to the customer’s door. 
  • Your customers get more affordable shipping rates, and you get happier customers without having to spend time on fulfilment.

Pick, pack, and ship

The process of preparing, packaging, and shipping an order is time-consuming. ShipBob takes the pick and pack fulfilment process off your hands entirely. Once we receive an order, picking lists are generated automatically at our fulfilment centres, and our fulfilment experts get the order out the door as fast as possible.

Distributed inventory

Distributing your inventory across multiple fulfilment centres is a great way to reduce shipping costs and speed up delivery times. Once you have an idea of where most of your customers live, you can choose the best ShipBob fulfilment centre locations to store inventory. For businesses shipping to the Netherlands, you can ship your inventory to our EU or other global fulfilment centres, and we’ll take care of it from there. 

Inventory control and management

ShipBob’s built-in inventory management software allows you to add and remove SKUs with ease, view inventory counts, and set reorder points. You no longer have to spend time digging around warehouses and manually tracking inventory. Inventory management tasks can be done through the dashboard, and you can view inventory levels and order status in real-time. 

Why ShipBob is the best choice for fulfilment

The cost, quality, and speed of your fulfilment process is a critical factor in determining the customer experience. Optimising your fulfilment process is a great way to improve customer satisfaction by offering faster, more affordable shipping options. And that’s not the only way more efficient fulfilment can benefit you.

Save on fulfilment

Fulfilment is often one of the biggest costs of running an ecommerce business, but ShipBob can optimise the fulfilment and shipping process to save you time and money. For example, coffee company Prymal partnered with ShipBob in 2019 and quickly started saving $8,000 per month on fulfilment costs, while at the same time growing 4x in just a year.

“Last July, Prymal reached $40,000 in revenue. After switching to ShipBob just four months later in November, we are reaching $160,000 a month in revenue — that’s 300% growth. We’re also saving $8,000 per month in fulfilment costs.”

Boost conversion rates

Expensive shipping costs can lead to cart abandonment. For this reason, reducing your shipping costs with ShipBob is a simple way to increase conversion rates.

Bathorium is a Canadian-based luxury bath brand that was looking to better serve US-based customers by offering affordable shipping. With ShipBob, they are able to scale their operations in the US and cut down on shipping costs significantly.

“We partnered with ShipBob to scale up operations in the United States. We’ve seen a reduction of 70% on shipping costs in the US, which helps keep conversions high.”

When should I outsource fulfilment to a 3PL?

If you’re interested in expanding into international markets but don’t want to deal with the hassle of international fulfilment, then the “right” time to outsource is when you’re generating enough interest from customers overseas. A simple way to determine this: check your historical order data and see how much traffic your website is getting from countries like the Netherlands. 

Outsourcing to a 3PL makes the most sense when you start to see a high volume of orders come through. Trying to keep up with a surge of orders in-house can hold you back from growing faster. Here are a few scenarios where you can benefit from outsourcing to a 3PL:

  • Your order volume fluctuates seasonally and you struggle to keep up with orders at a certain time of year. 
  • You are spending too much time and money on fulfilment and want to focus on other aspects of your business.
  • You are paying too much for international shipping and want more affordable rates.
  • Your inventory counts are off and you want a more reliable inventory management solution.
