What is an ecommerce delivery partner?
An ecommerce delivery partner takes care of last-mile delivery for you by automating and the optimizing the shipping process. This allows ecommerce businesses to save on time and costs, while passing significant shipping savings on to their customers.
What is the benefits of partnering with an ecommerce delivery partner?
By partnering with an ecommerce delivery partner, you can spend time picking, packing, and shipping boxes. A delivery partner will take care of your fulfillment and shipping needs. For instance, ShipBob automates shipping by partnering with major shipping carriers that come and pick up packages daily at all of ShipBob’s fulfillment center locations.
ShipBob’s warehouses are also equipped with technology that automatically searches for the most efficient and cost-effective routes.
How ShipBob integrates with your ecommerce store
Getting started with ShipBob is easy. Once you sync your online store with ShipBob’s technology, here’s what happens next:
1. Order is placed
The order is sent to a ShipBob fulfillment center. If you split inventory across multiple locations, the order will automatically get sent to the location closest to the order’s destination.
2. ShipBob picks and packs the order
Our 3PL technology automatically gives the picker information on where to find the items in our warehouse. The picker receives a packing slip with the items, quantities, and storage locations at the facility to collect the ordered products from their respective locations.
3. Order gets shipped
ShipBob partners with major shipping carriers like USPS, UPS, FedEx, and DHL. ShipBob offers faster and more affordable shipping options, a large and growing international geographical footprint, from which you can choose to store your inventory at one or more of our warehouses.
