ShipBob Enters Southern Logistics Market With New Warehouse in Dallas
October 30, 2017
In a continued effort to give ecommerce companies a hassle-free way to manage inventory and ship products across the United States, ShipBob announced the opening of its newest warehouse in Dallas, Texas today. Dallas marks ShipBob’s fifth fulfillment center and the first in the Southern United States.
The warehouse is at 4051 Freeport Parkway in Grapevine, Texas, located nearly equidistant from Dallas and Fort Worth. ShipBob’s warehouse will also bring new jobs to the area with plans to hire over 100 employees over the course of the next two months.
“We’re excited to welcome Dallas to the ShipBob family and continue our mission of creating a network of ecommerce fulfillment centers close to where our customers reside,” said ShipBob CEO and co-founder Dhruv Saxena. “ShipBob may be new to the Dallas area, but with so many ecommerce companies in the region, we’re now in the perfect position to help these companies grow their businesses by providing the highest quality shipping and logistics in the region and the country.”
Dallas is ShipBob’s first warehouse to open since announcing a Series B investment of $17.5 million led by investment firm Bain Capital Ventures. Along with Bain Capital Ventures, this round saw participation from existing investors- Hyde Park Venture Partners, FundersClub, Hyde Park Angels and FJ Labs LLC. While this location will be able to offer Dallas regional customers same-day shipping, it also continues ShipBob’s strategy of distributed inventory, a method of providing customers with diversified locations to reduce shipping costs, times and distances.
ShipBob has already helped more than 1,000 ecommerce companies ship over two million packages to date. With warehouses in Chicago, Brooklyn, Las Angeles, San Francisco, and now Dallas, ShipBob can offer shipping solutions across the continental United States.
