Edinburgh Fulfilment Services
Edinburgh-based ecommerce businesses interested in expanding their fulfilment and shipping capacity can outsource fulfilment to 3PL. A 3PL can save you tons of weekly hours on logistics operations tasks and streamline your fulfilment process.
ShipBob is an international 3PL with a growing fulfilment centre network, including locations in both Birmingham and Manchester, England, UK for easy shipping within the United Kingdom, another in Dublin, Ireland for convenient fulfilment of orders going to the European Union, and more in other hot markets like the United States, Canada, Australia, and more.
With ShipBob, you can split inventory across distribution centres and reduce shipping costs while speeding up deliveries, rather than rely on a single fulfilment centre in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Whether you’re solely interested in shipping to UK customers or you want to expand outside of the UK in the future, ShipBob can help.
Beyond taking care of all of our mainland European and Ireland orders, we quickly became very impressed by ShipBob’s transparency, simplicity, and intuitive dashboard.

Leverage fulfilment to boost sales
Since shipping cost and speed are two of the most important considerations customers will make before deciding on a purchase, offering better shipping options can have a huge impact on your bottom line.
Many ShipBob clients see a significant rise in average order value and reduced cart abandonment after improving their shipping strategy.
To help you grow your business efficiently, ShipBob’s proprietary technology comes with built-in order and inventory management tools that make it easy to gather fulfilment, shipping, and demand forecasting insights all from one dashboard.
View inventory counts in real time, set automatic reorder notification points, filter all orders by status, and more.
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.
