Norfolk Fulfilment Solutions
Looking for a Norfolk, Virginia-based fulfilment solution?
ShipBob is an omnichannel fulfilment provider that enables brands to grow their business faster with access to a network of fulfilment centres and 2-day shipping capabilities.
If your brand operates out of Norfolk, storing inventory across several locations in the US (and even across the globe!) can help you generate more sales, save on costs, and expand into new markets with ease.
Read on to learn how ShipBob works.
We can offer 2-day shipping across the US thanks to ShipBob’s fulfilment centre network and be consistent with our most important service levels: receiving times, fulfilment cutoffs, and shipping speeds.

Grow your business with ShipBob
To stay competitive in a fast-growing ecommerce market, brands from a wide range of industries partner with ShipBob for a number of reasons.
For one, operating out of one fulfilment centre can hold your business back from growing. If your customers live across the US, then using one Norfolk-based fulfilment centre will result in higher shipping costs for customers located outside the region.
ShipBob operates several fulfilment centres located in strategic regions across the US, as well as internationally to serve customers outside of the country.
Rather than storing all your inventory in Norfolk, you can store it in multiple fulfilment centres. Once an order is placed, it is routed to the nearest location to speed up delivery times and reduce shipping costs.
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.
