Maine Fulfilment Services
Oftentimes, ecommerce businesses are limited in their growth since they don’t have the fulfilment infrastructure needed to compete against the big-box retailers and marketplaces like Amazon who can offer affordable or free 2-day shipping.
Everyone wants to offer faster, affordable shipping, but pulling it off requires infrastructure, technology, and logistics expertise that some small to mid-size ecommerce companies don’t have access to.
ShipBob is a third-party logistics (3PL) provider that can solve this problem for you. We operate a global network of fulfilment centres. If your business is located in Maine, you can store inventory at our Pennsylvania location to offer affordable and fast shipping for customers on the East Coast. As your business grows, you can move into more fulfilment centres across the globe.
ShipBob takes care of all-things fulfilment and logistics, so you can offer a better experience for your customers, while saving time and money.
We grew our ecommerce business by around 75% last year. The ability to execute as well as we did was due to ShipBob’s team.

Reduce shipping costs and boost your bottom line
Your average fulfilment company will store all of your inventory in one place and distribute it from there, taking fulfilment off your hands. ShipBob takes this a step further with a method known as distributed inventory. Distributing your inventory means storing your inventory in multiple fulfilment centres in different areas of the country (or the world) to reduce shipping costs and transit times.
Rather than have a single fulfilment centre in Maine, you can see where your customers live and store your inventory in fulfilment centres closer to them. This significantly reduces the distance between your fulfilment centre and yours customers.
ShipBob can benefit your business in other ways as well. Many ecommerce companies struggle with inventory and order management: their inventory counts are off, they run out of stock, and shipments are delayed or cancelled entirely. ShipBob puts your fulfilment process on autopilot with built-in order and inventory management tools. We safely store your inventory and keep it organised so that counts are accurate, and you full visibility into the process from ShipBob’s dashboard.
By simplifying optimising your supply chain with ShipBob, you can set your business up for long-term success.
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.
