Canada is the ninth largest market for ecommerce worth over $31 billion.
Launching into Canadian markets like Kitchener can give you a competitive edge. But shipping to Canada from the US and vice versa presents logistical challenges, especially if you’re only using one location to ship customers orders.
That’s where ShipBob comes in.
ShipBob operates an international fulfilment network, including locations in Canada. With ShipBob, you can easily expand your inventory distribution by bringing your inventory closer to your customers.
With ShipBob, international selling is made straight-forward, more affordable, and less time-consuming. Read on to learn about ShipBob’s international shipping and fulfilment capabilities.

Expand Across Canada and the Globe
26% of online shoppers have increased the amount they shop abroad during the pandemic.
If you’re looking to grow your ecommerce business internationally, expanding into Canada is a great place to start. And if you’re a Canadian brand looking to go global, ShipBob can help.
Canadian fulfilment centres make it easier for both Canadian-based businesses and international brands to serve more customers across Canada and launch into new, international markets with ease.
Our best-in-class cloud shipping technology is designed to automate the shipping process and provides more visibility into shipping performance, including real-time updates on inventory stock levels, orders being processed, and international tracking for orders that have shipped via UPS, DHL, and FedEx.
Using the ShipBob dashboard, you can track historical shipping insights and view an ideal distribution strategy. This makes it easy to expand into more ShipBob locations based on where your customers are located.
ShipBob: a best-in-class global fulfilment partner
ShipBob is a global fulfilment provider and works closely with ecommerce businesses to deliver orders as quickly and accurately as possible by reducing overall costs.
With a growing, international fulfilment presence, you have the option to split inventory across multiple fulfilment centres based on where customers are located across the world.
Rather than investing time and money into building an international logistics strategy, ShipBob grants access to a robust distribution network and the technology needed to meet customer demand with faster, affordable, and consistent shipping.
Once an order is shipped, you are sent tracking information, so you can automatically share it with your customers. ShipBob also partners with major couriers to offer discounted domestic and international shipping rates.

“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.”

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.
