Minnesota Fulfilment Services
Big-box retailers like Amazon and Wal-Mart have the ability to offer fast shipping because they have a distribution network in every state in the country. But smaller ecommerce merchants based in states like Minnesota often don’t have the infrastructure and technology to compete with bigger brands and marketplaces.
ShipBob is a third-party logistics (3PL) provider with an extensive distribution infrastructure. With our growing fulfilment network, rather than relying on a single fulfilment centre in Minnesota, you can store your inventory across the US, save time on fulfilment, and offer your customers better shipping options.
Thanks to ShipBob, we’re able to reduce shipping costs by being closer to the end consumer and splitting inventory. We had inventory in 4 ShipBob warehouses, and we just added 3 more.

Boost AOV and reduce cart abandonment
Splitting your inventory across multiple fulfilment locations (both domestic and internationally) is simple.
ShipBob has fulfilment centres across the globe. Once you know where your customers are, you can strategically distribute inventory across the fulfilment centres closest to them. When an order is placed, it’s routed to the optimal fulfilment centre and our team picks, packs, and ships the order.
Shipping is one of the most important considerations an ecommerce customer will make. If shipping costs are too high or delivery timelines are too long, customers are likely to abandon their carts. Removing these common barriers to purchase will improve average order value (AOV) and reduce cart abandonment.
With ShipBob, your fulfilment is on autopilot: we take care of the nitty-gritty details like warehouse management, picking and packing, shipping, and returns, and you get full visibility into the fulfilment process from your ShipBob dashboard.
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.
