Montreal Ecommerce Fulfilment ServicesRequest a Quote
One of the most effective ways to speed up ecommerce growth is by opening your business to new markets. The broader your shipping reach, the bigger your potential customer base. And if you can offer fast and affordable shipping options, then you’ll have a major advantage over the competition.
But offering affordable international shipping can be a challenge. Companies spend years and invest millions in building fulfilment and distribution networks. However, with help from a tech-enabled 3PL (third-party logistics) like ShipBob, you can skip all that and instantly scale your fulfilment logistics without the hassle of building a fulfilment infrastructure yourself.
ShipBob operates a network of international fulfilment locations. If you partner with us you can access all of them.
If you’re a US-based ecommerce company trying to ship to Montreal, you can bulk ship your ecommerce inventory to our Ontario fulfilment centre and we can fulfil all your Canadian orders from within the country, so that each order doesn’t have to go through customs.
If you are based in Montreal and have US customers, you can do the opposite and take your pick from our network of US fulfilment centres.
With our help, scaling your shipping and expanding into new, lucrative markets is easier than ever.
“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.”
Greg MacDonald, CEO & Founder of Bathorium
Ecommerce order fulfilment in Montreal
ShipBob makes international fulfilment painless and simple: just set up your store with our platform, ship us your inventory, and we’ll take care of everything else. Here’s how it works:
- First, sync your store with our platform from your Onboarding Dashboard.
- Then, ship inventory to a ShipBob fulfilment centre. If you want to ship to Canadian customers, then you can bulk ship your inventory to our Canadian fulfilment centre.
- We are notified automatically when an order is placed, and our professionals prepare and ship the order (with tracking info sent to the customer).
- You and the customer get faster, more affordable shipping.
Pick, pack, and ship
By outsourcing retail fulfilment to us, you’ll never have to spend time picking orders and packing boxes. When an order is placed at your store, picking lists are auto-generated at our fulfilment centre and our professionals kick into action. You can also choose custom-designed packaging and choose the perfect materials for your product.
ShipBob doesn’t just enhance your shipping capacity and simplify the fulfilment process. We also use cutting-edge technology to optimise your shipping by searching the top mail couriers and finding the cheapest, fastest routes for each package automatically.
One advantage of working with ShipBob is that all of your data is collected in one place. Our analytics platform provides deep insight into your supply chain, consumer demand, inventory requirements, and much more.
Choosing ShipBob for your Montreal order fulfilment
Outsourcing fulfilment to ShipBob allows you to focus on the parts of your business that matter most. And, with better shipping options available, customers are more likely to convert and spend.
Spend less on fulfilment
Fulfilment is one of an ecommerce business’s biggest costs, and your fulfilment costs also inform your shipping options. If you’re spending too much on fulfilment, then you’ll likely pass that cost onto the consumer and won’t be able to offer better shipping options.
Partnering with ShipBob and distributing your inventory enables you to drive down costs and optimise your shipping. One of our partners, eco-friendly beach brand Ocean & Co. switched to ShipBob from a different 3PL and quickly saved 33% on fulfilment, while racking up $2 million in sales in their first year.
Grow your business faster
Your sales and rate of growth are also tied to your shipping & fulfilment capacity: you can only sell as many orders as you can ship. Oftentimes, ecommerce founders end up spending huge chunks of their time picking orders and packing boxes, rather than focusing on high-level strategy and growing their business. With ShipBob, you can get back to working on the stuff that you love.
Anastasia Allison, the founder of outdoor company Kula Cloth, used to spend most of her time fulfiling orders. After partnering with ShipBob and using 2 fulfilment centres she was freed up to focus on growth, and Kula Cloth has since tripled their order volume (even fulfiling as many as 73 orders in a single day!) without Anastasia lifting a finger.
Ship all over the world
With ShipBob you’re not restricted to shipping across the US: we also have a fulfilment centres across the globe, and we’ve worked with hundreds of ecommerce brands to ship to every continent.
One of our clients, The Adventure Challenge chose ShipBob for not just Canadian fulfilment services but to expand all over the world. Today, they’re using ShipBob’s fulfilment centres in the US, Australia, Canada, the UK, and the EU.
When should I outsource fulfilment to a 3PL?
If you’re trying to find the perfect time to outsource fulfilment, ask yourself: what is holding my business back from growth? If your business is still young and you haven’t generated enough sales to have problems with scaling, then you may not need to outsource. But, if there are parts of the fulfilment process that you’re struggling with and that are hindering your growth, then you should consider outsourcing. Here are some common pain points a 3PL like ShipBob can solve for you:
- You want to ship to customers in Montreal, but you are based in the US and don’t think customers will pay a premium on your products for international shipping.
- Your fulfilment team is prone to errors, so you want to streamline and professionalize the fulfilment process.
- You and your team spend too much time on fulfilment.
- Orders are pouring in faster than ever and your fulfilment team is falling behind.
