Supply Chain Management Services
Spending too much time on supply chain management?
Managing an ecommerce supply chain on your own is time-consuming and costly, with lots of labour, training, certifications, resources, safety measures, and other costs that make in-house fulfilment unappealing to many.
ShipBob can help simplify logistics by taking time-consuming logistics tasks off your plate.
ShipBob fulfils orders for a wide range of fast-growing brands across their large network of fulfilment centres and gives brands time back to focus on marketing, product development, and more.
Logistics is something you never think about until it stops working, and we’ve never come to that point with ShipBob. Everything just works. We are super happy with ShipBob and very impressed by how well they’ve pumped out our large volume of orders.

ShipBob’s Supply Chain Management Solutions
With a properly managed supply chain, you can scale your business without having to constantly worry about tracking inventory levels, warehouse issues, spending too much time on picking and packing, shipping orders, and more.
ShipBob has a team of experts in supply chain management and know how to optimise operations, as well as stay up-to-date on the latest supply chain trends and technology.
Here’s how ShipBob can support your supply chain.
Multiple distribution centres
ShipBob offers a an extensive 3PL network of fulfilment centres, to help you strategically expand into new distribution locations based on where your customers are located.
This not only speeds up order delivery and costs, but it also helps mitigate risks in case of unexpected warehouse closures or inability of couriers to pick up from the facility due to bad weather.
Although online shopping allows access to your products from customers all over the globe, international fulfilment services present entirely new challenges. Different countries have various regulations, tariffs, taxes, and requirements for incoming shipments, making it difficult to navigate the international landscape.
ShipBob’s international locations are powered by the same 3PL software, which enables consistency throughout supply chain.
“ShipBob has multiple fulfilment centres in the US, one in Canada, one in the EU, and one in the UK.* All locations filter back into one centralised warehouse management system, so everything is under the ShipBob umbrella.
By distributing our inventory across these countries and regions, all of our customers are able to get their orders much faster while paying reasonable domestic shipping rates.”
Wes Brown, Head of Operations at Black Claw LLC

Inventory and order management
The best 3PLs give you the information you need to manage inventory without having to store products yourself. Inventory levels for all products are tracked in one place and you can set automatic reorder notifications to make sure you never run out of inventory.
“We are very impressed by ShipBob’s transparency, simplicity, and intuitive dashboard. So many 3PLs have either bad or no front-facing software, making it impossible to keep track of what’s leaving or entering the warehouse.
On the supply chain side, I just throw in what we placed at the factory into a WRO in the ShipBob dashboard, and I can see how many units we have on-hand, what’s incoming, what’s at docks, and so on. I can see all of those numbers in a few seconds, and it makes life so much easier.”
Harley Abrams, Operations Manager of SuperSpeed Golf, LLC
With real-time visibility into your orders from the ShipBob dashboard and automated order processing, you can keep customers up-to-date and also easily access order management metrics and fulfilment performance.
From managing your warehouse staff to monitoring the movement of inventory, you will want to keep a close eye on how you can improve inventory storage, reduce carrying costs, and find ways to streamline the fulfilment process.
A warehouse management system can help to manage inventory levels and storage, improve productivity, and efficiently fulfil orders. It can also help to take the guesswork out of the process, save time, and reduce human error, without the need to continuously conduct warehouse audits.
“Our old 3PL had 1,500 units of missing inventory that they couldn’t find. Because of a lack of ownership of the entire fulfilment stack, it’s been difficult to rectify, unlike with ShipBob who owns the entire stack: inventory and order management system, warehouse management system, and their fulfilment centres.”
Gerard Ecker, Founder & CEO of Ocean & Co.
It’s easy to get started
Once you sync your online store to our technology, we help get you up and running quickly. As soon as we receive you inventory, the orders are automatically sent to the closest fulfilment centre to the order’s destination to be picked, packed and shipped.
