What is cookware fulfillment?
Cookware fulfillment involves the process of picking, packing, and shipping a variety of cookware items, from pots to pans to cooking utensils such as knives, cutting boards, and more. Cookware fulfillment involves secure, safe warehousing and extra care in the order fulfillment process due to heavy and/or fragile items.
Cookware shipping and fulfillment solutions
ShipBob is a best-in-class fulfillment provider that offers solutions that give cookware ecommerce stores a competitive edge. With ShipBob, you’re given access to a growing, global fulfillment network, intuitive and user-friendly software, advanced data and analytics, and more.
Fast order fulfillment
ShipBob’s proprietary fulfillment software automates and optimizes the picking, packing, shipping, and delivery processes. Our technology connects your stores to our fulfillment center network to provide real-time order tracking information, visibility into inventory levels, and forecasting projections. Our software even routes each order to the fulfillment center that is closest to the customer, which speeds up the picking and packing process so orders are shipped quickly.
Our expansive networks allows you split inventory across multiple fulfillment center locations based on where your customers are located. That way, you can ship orders out from the closes fulfillment center to the order’s destination to not only speed up last-mile delivery but also optimize shipping costs. We also negotiate shipping discounts on your behalf through major carriers like FedEx, UPS, USPS, and DHL. These bulk discounts also help you reduce shipping costs (from expedited or 2-day to international shipping).
Shipping fragile items
Some cookware products require extra care. Although ShipBob has processes in place to reduce risk in shipping fragile items, some issues can arise while orders are in transit that are outside of our control. When shipping damages occur, we file claims on behalf of the merchant at no additional cost. We also help you choose the fulfillment center(s) in which to store your inventory that are closest to your end consumers to help reduce the distance traveled and time in transit.
ShipBob’s cookware fulfillment process
ShipBob has partnered with a wide range of cosmetics and beauty brands to help optimize their retail fulfillment process. Once we receive your inventory at one or more of our fulfillment center locations, it is then stored in our warehouse until items are ready to be fulfilled.
Once orders are placed on your online store, our fulfillment experts pick and pack items and ship orders as fast as possible. We partner with top shipping carriers and negotiate bulk shipping rates to pass the savings on to you and your customers.
ShipBob makes it easy to track the entire inventory and order management process from a single dashboard. Your ShipBob dashboard offers powerful data and analytics reporting that provides deep insights into your supply chain. With this data you can continuously optimize and improve your retail supply chain, accurately forecast inventory, prepare for seasonal fluctuations in sales, and much more.
Get started with ShipBob
ShipBob offers direct integration with leading ecommerce platforms, including Shopify and Shopify Plus, WooCommerce, Squarespace, Wix, and Square Online. This makes it easy to connect your online store with ShipBob’s technology in minutes.
Once you connect your store with ShipBob, you can choose which fulfillment center locations (across the US and in Canada, the EU, Australia, and the UK) to store inventory in. Once we receive and store your inventory, orders placed on your online store will automatically be sent to ShipBob to be picked, packed, and shipped.
You can track the entire fulfillment process from the ShipBob’s dashboard, and you can view inventory levels and order status all in real time. Read on to learn more about how ShipBob works.
With ShipBob’s network of fulfillment centers, 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 carrier 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 fulfillment center.
You can also distribute your inventory across ShipBob’s fulfillment centers 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 fulfillment process (e.g. when an order is picked, packed, or shipped), easily find shipping-related information (e.g., weights, dimensions, or carrier 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 fulfillment centers 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 fulfillment 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.
