Alaska Fulfilment Services
Fulfilment often causes huge many challenges for ecommerce companies, such as dealing with shipping and logistics, inventory and management, and much more. These processes eat up time, money and energy, and your fulfilment capacity limits your ability to scale.
ShipBob is a third-party logistics (3PL) service that can take all of this off your plate.
ShipBob offers a robust fulfilment centre network, so you don’t have to limit yourself to one fulfilment centre in Alaska. With ShipBob, you can choose to ship from any of them. Just send us your inventory, and we distribute it from there.
Our best-in-class platform comes with built-in order and inventory management tools, as well as proprietary technology that optimises your shipping. You can adopt an international distribution infrastructure, technology, and logistics expertise to help you grow your business faster.
There were definitely cost savings in moving to ShipBob as the old 3PL charged us for every pick fee, which added up. ShipBob offers a simpler approach to pricing

Ship faster and offer lower prices!
ShipBob uses a distribution method called distributed inventory which allows you to store your inventory in multiple locations across the US (or the globe). This reduces the shipping zones that each package must cross. By bringing your inventory closer to your customer base, you can lower shipping costs and speed up delivery timelines.
So, if your customers are located across the country, you can choose from our fulfilment centres in Illinois, Pennsylvania, and California (or ship from all of them!). If you want to grow outside of the US and start shipping to Canada or even Europe or Australia, we have fulfilment centres across the globe. With distributed inventory, you’re no longer stuck paying a premium on shipping and passing that cost along to the customer.
Modern ecommerce customers expect fast, affordable shipping. Since shipping is one of the most important considerations a customer will make before they purchase, offering more shipping options can be a game-changer for ecommerce companies. Our customers often see major benefits in partnering with us including higher average order value, more sales, and faster growth. Not to mention you no longer have to spend time packing boxes!
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 found adding 2-Day Shipping increased their conversions 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.
100% Coverage Across the Continental US
If you’re looking to expand into the United States, ShipBob has 2-Day Express Shipping that provides 100% coverage in the continental US from even just one fulfilment centre.
You can also distribute your inventory across ShipBob’s fulfilment centres across all regions of the United States. We leave it up to you to decide where you want us to store your inventory.
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.
We ship all over the world
We use our network of fulfillment centers to help you strategically split and manage your inventory to reduce shipping costs and transit times.
