Best 3PL Ecommerce Fulfillment Services on the East Coast
East Coast fulfillment services for ecommerce businesses.Request a Quote
Shipping is a critical part of any successful ecommerce strategy. It’s not just about what you sell, but how quickly and affordably you can get products into the hands of customers. Offering your customers better shipping options fosters brand loyalty and results in more sales.
But if you’re only using a single east coast fulfillment center, then shipping to the west coast or heartland will be expensive.
ShipBob is a 3PL that reduces shipping costs and transit times by giving you access to multiple fulfillment centers including their east coast fulfillment center. This allows you to store your products in regions closer to your customer base, so you can ship fast to customers on the east coast and everywhere else.
ShipBob’s partnerships with all the major shipping carriers get you the best rates, and ShipBob’s best-in-class technology streamlines the fulfillment process.
Outsource fulfillment to ShipBob and you’ll immediately see an improvement in your bottom line (and your customers will be pleased with lower shipping rates as well).

ShipBob’s east coast 3PL order fulfillment services
When you partner with ShipBob you get more than just picking/packing/shipping services. We share insightful inventory reports and analytics, provide tools for keeping track of inventory, and let you monitor and control each step of the fulfillment process.
Warehousing and inventory management
ShipBob gives you access to a national network of fulfillment centers where your products are securely stored. Our technology makes inventory management simple and lets you view inventory counts, use built-in reorder point formulas, and distribute your inventory strategically based on the location of your customers.
Stay on top of your daily orders from your ShipBob dashboard. You can:
- Monitor orders from when they are placed until they are delivered
- View order volume, orders fulfilled, and much more
- Search for specific orders and resolve problems quickly
- Forecast inventory thanks to efficient inventory reporting
Many ecommerce businesses can’t offer affordable 2-day shipping via ground because their fulfillment center is too far from their customers. The shorter shipping distances and faster transit times you get with distributed inventory let you offer 2-day shipping to customers anywhere in the US (without breaking the bank).
Analytics and reporting tool
Partner with ShipBob and access a wealth of data-driven analysis that can inform business decisions and help you grow faster. Keep track of distribution metrics, purchasing trends, predict demand, and forecast inventory to make your business more efficient than ever. Save time and use this data for accurate inventory accounting. You can even keep us accountable with transparent fulfillment performance data.

How ShipBob’s east coast fulfillment services can grow your business
Unlike other fulfillment companies, ShipBob’s goal isn’t only to take shipping and logistics off your hands. We help businesses gain efficiencies, scale, and ultimately grow more profitable. Here’s how.
Partner with ShipBob and you instantly gain access to the infrastructure and resources you need to scale quickly. Deodorant company PiperWai took off after an appearance on Shark Tank and partnered with ShipBob to meet the demand. ShipBob already worked with PiperWai’s packaging and ecommerce solutions. With optimized cross-country shipping, PiperWai was able to manage their 6,000% growth.
Make your business more agile
The ability to manage your ecommerce inventory virtually means you can add SKUs and restock inventory easier than ever. Sportswear company FLEO Shorts rolls out multiple designs and products each month, and the flexibility they gained from ShipBob’s inventory management platform was a major factor in their 30% year over year growth.
Spend less on shipping
If you follow the data and store your products in regions close to your customers, then shipping distances, fulfillment costs, and transit times all go down. Luxury bath brand Bathorium cut shipping costs by 70% in the US after partnering with ShipBob and grew their reach in the US by an additional 20% of their total customer base.
Is it time for you to hire a 3PL?
Shipping isn’t usually the strongest point of expertise for most ecommerce businesses, yet the benefit of a 3PL is that they can make shipping one of the strongest points of your business. Faster, cheaper, more efficient shipping gives you an advantage over your competitors. But some businesses can benefit more from a 3PL than others. Here are some signs that your business may be ready:
- You lack the infrastructure or resources to scale fulfillment in-house
- You are devoting too much manpower to picking, packing, and shipping
- Your storage space is overcrowded and disorganized
- Your order volume has rapidly increased and you’re struggling to keep up
- You have a single east coast fulfillment warehouse and want more cost-effective cross-country shipping.
