Best 3PL for Ecommerce Order Fulfilment In Atlanta
Learn about ShipBob’s Atlanta-based fulfilment centre.Request a Quote
Ecommerce customers expect fast, affordable shipping. But this becomes increasingly difficult to deliver at a decent margin as your shipping volume grows and your customer base spreads across the country. The further a package must travel, the more it costs to ship it, so how do you keep costs low and customers happy? ShipBob offers a solution.
Rather than fulfiling orders yourself, store it across ShipBob’s network of fulfilment centres, including our fulfilment location in Atlanta.
By using multiple fulfilment centres shortens transit times, lowers fulfilment costs and shipping rates, and broadens your reach.
With ShipBob, you can offer customers two-day shipping at a more cost-effective margin. In turn, your customers will spend more and abandon their shopping carts less.
ShipBob has fulfilment centres all over the US so we’re not limited to shipping from one location. Even though we’re located near their fulfilment centre on the East Coast, it’s actually more advantageous for us to ship from elsewhere to efficiently reach the majority of where our orders are shipped to.”
-Ryan Casas, COO of iloveplum
ShipBob’s fulfilment model
If your customers are spread out across the country, then your ecommerce inventory should be too. Brands that follow the data and store their product in different regions near their customers will come out on top.
ShipBob’s model is simple. Send us your products and sync your ecommerce store with our platform so we are notified when an order is placed. The order is picked, packed, and shipped from one of our several fulfilment centres across the nation — so there is no need for fulfiling orders out of a single Atlanta fulfilment centre.
Manage your inventory
View your inventory in real-time at each fulfilment centre and schedule notifications to reorder your optimal quantity, so you always have the right amount of product in the right place. Stay on top of inventory levels and keep a safety stock on hand.

Sync your ecommerce platform
Connect ShipBob’s technology to your ecommerce platform with no coding required. When an order is placed on your ecommerce website, ShipBob is automatically notified and the retail fulfilment process begins.

Monitor orders throughout shipping and fulfilment
ShipBob’s tools let you stay in the know throughout each step of the order process, from pick and pack to ship. Your ShipBob dashboard puts all the most important order information in one place, so you can easily search, organise, and track ecommerce orders.
What makes ShipBob’s model special
You need a 3PL that can provide low-cost two-day shipping and plug seamlessly into your workflow and tech stack. ShipBob’s technology automates ecommerce fulfilment and optimises your shipping with access to multiple fulfilment centres, so you can cut delivery costs and transit times without an Atlanta fulfilment centre.
Multiple fulfilment centres
Store your inventory at multiple fulfilment centres across the country instead of one that is maybe close to you but not the best option or scalable solution to ship orders countrywide. When a customer places an order, the order is routed to the nearest fulfilment centre automatically. That means shorter transit times, lower logistics costs, and affordable two-day shipping for your customers.

ShipBob’s technology provides insightful inventory reports and detailed distribution metrics for your business, so you can understand your customers better and manage inventory accounting with ease.

Leverage shipping to grow faster with ShipBob
Companies often view shipping as a burden, but in reality you can utilise shipping to enhance the customer experience and accelerate your growth. When customers see low shipping costs in their shopping cart and fast delivery times, they convert at a higher rate and will even spend more money.
Cut shipping costs and deliver faster
Distributed inventory lowers shipping costs and delivery times by reducing the distance a package must travel. Luxury bath brand Bathorium reduced shipping costs by 70% and cut transit times as well, even as they experienced 20% growth in the US market.
Customers are more likely to purchase when you offer affordable two-day shipping. Weighted blanket company My Blanket was able to offer free two-day shipping with ShipBob, and reduced cart abandonment by 18%.
Reduce manual labour
Outsourcing to a 3PL lets you focus your time more efficiently at crucial stages of growth for your business. Before partnering with ShipBob, sunglass brand Rainbow OPTX was spending 20 hours per day just packing boxes. Since transitioning to ShipBob, they’ve experienced 115% growth and more than doubled their order volume — while saving over 120 hours of manual labour each week.
Am I ready for a 3PL?
You’ve seen how a fulfilment company can grow a business and save time and money. But how can you tell if your business is ready for a 3PL? If any of the following sound familiar, you may benefit from outsourcing order fulfilment:

- You are struggling with ecommerce warehousing or running out of storage space
- You want better shipping margins
- You want to offer affordable two-day shipping to your customers
- You have been shipping out of one Atlanta fulfilment centre but your customer base is spread across the country
