The fulfillment process is often a major source of frustration for growing ecommerce businesses.
The challenges of in-house fulfillment grow more complex as you scale, draining manpower and resources at the most critical time for your business. That’s why many turn to a third-party logistics (3PL) provider.
But not all 3PLs are created equal. ShipBob not only stores and ships your products, but uses an innovative model that helps you ship faster and more affordably.
Most ecommerce businesses store their products at one warehouse near home. But by following your order history data and storing your products at multiple fulfillment centers closer to your customers, you can reduce the distance each package travels.
That means cheaper, faster shipping for your customers and better shipping margins for you.
Instead of confining your inventory to a fulfillment center in Las Vegas, ShipBob allows you to distribute your inventory strategically across the country.
Hear from a customer
“We now save a lot of money and ship faster based on distributed inventory. So far, we are shipping out of two of ShipBob’s fulfillment centers. We use the locations that optimize and reduce the distance traveled to get our products into our customers’ hands faster.”

- Sync your store with ShipBob so we are notified when customers place an order.

- When an order is placed, it is routed automatically to the nearest fulfillment center, picking list and packing slip generated automatically, and your order is picked, packed, and shipped.
- Your transit times and shipping costs are reduced, and your customers get their products faster — no need for a Las Vegas-based fulfillment center.
- Keep inventory reports for accurate inventory forecasting and efficient inventory accounting.

- View and monitor orders that are on hold
- Search for specific orders

Pick and pack services
Once an order is placed, it’s routed to the optimal fulfillment center, then picked, packed, and shipped with ecommerce order tracking info sent to the customer. You can choose regular packing materials or use your own custom-designed packaging.
Dedicated onsite support reps at our fulfillment centers as well as our full Merchant Care team provide immediate responses and solutions any time you have a question.
Ecommerce customers expect affordable two-day shipping, but it’s difficult to offer two-day shipping at a decent margin if you always have to ship cross-country.
Distributing your inventory across multiple fulfillment centers with ShipBob reduces transit times and fulfillment costs, so you can offer two-day shipping to customers all over the country.
How ShipBob can grow your Las Vegas ecommerce business
Your 3PL should not only take shipping off your hands, but optimize your shipping and inventory control, so you can grow faster. ShipBob’s technology, expertise, and infrastructure lets you offer your customers better shipping options — which results in more sales and fewer abandoned carts.
Increase average order value
If you offer customers free two-day shipping, you can get them to spend more. After partnering with ShipBob, tutu brand iloveplum did this, and their AOV subsequently doubled. And their sales continued to grow 267% year-over-year.
Reduce cart abandonment
Customers often abandon their shopping carts due to high shipping costs or long delivery times. Weighted blanket company My Calm Blanket partnered with ShipBob and saw an 18% decrease in cart abandonment by offering cheaper, faster shipping.
Fulfillment takes up time and effort that few ecommerce businesses have to spare. Sunglasses company Rainbow OPTX saved 20 hours of daily manual labor by partnering with ShipBob and went on to double their order volume and experience 115% growth.

Are you ready to outsource your order fulfillment to a 3PL?
Not all ecommerce businesses have the customer base or order volume to require a 3PL just yet. 3PLs are ideal for businesses that need to scale fast or rapidly expand their shipping capabilities. You may benefit from a 3PL if:
- You want to offer your customers inexpensive 2-day shipping
- You don’t want to invest in the infrastructure and workforce needed to support your volume
- You don’t want to become a fulfillment logistics expert yourself and want to spend time on growing your business
- Your business is growing so fast that you can’t keep up
- You are running out of space
- You only have one fulfillment center or storage space in Las Vegas and pay high fees to ship across the US
