The cost and speed of shipping are two of the most important considerations for ecommerce customers making a purchase. Yet, businesses often want to focus on getting customers, and in turn look at shipping as just a logistical problem to be dealt with.
In fact, shipping can and should be a major part of any ecommerce strategy. If you can offer your customers better shipping options, then you’ll convert more sales and build more customer loyalty. So how do you ship faster and more affordably?
ShipBob is a fulfillment solution that can speed up delivery times and bring down fulfillment costs.
Partner with ShipBob and gain access to our national network of fulfillment centers and best-in-class technology. You can offer same-, next-, and two-day shipping to customers across the country — without a Miami fulfillment center.
“It’s paramount for people to feel confident that they will receive their products in the shortest amount of time possible. We’d hate to see our customers go somewhere else because we don’t offer 2-day shipping, so we used ShipBob’s 2-Day Express program.”

Read on to learn how ShipBob can handle fulfillment for your Miami-based ecommerce business.
What is a 3PL?
Not every ecommerce business wants to master the nitty-gritty details of warehousing and distribution. And even fewer are prepared to build the infrastructure necessary to scale fulfillment. Third-party logistics (3PL) providers take fulfillment off your hands and can help:
- Free up your time so you can focus on other priorities
- Give you the infrastructure and fulfillment centers for cross-country shipping
- Ship your products faster
- Lower inventory carrying costs
- Reduce shipping costs
How it works
The fulfillment process is simple and straightforward when you partner with ShipBob:
- Sync your store with ShipBob
- Ship your products to our fulfillment centers
- ShipBob receives notification when an order is placed on your site
- The order is picked, packed, and shipped (with ecommerce order tracking info to be sent back to the customer)

Connect your store to ShipBob
Syncing your store with ShipBob’s technology is simple — you don’t need any programming knowledge. We’re integrated with top ecommerce and shipping platforms, so you can seamlessly manage fulfillment.

Picking the best fulfillment provider in Miami
ShipBob develops unique data-based fulfillment solutions that optimize your shipping and help you reach more customers.
Store your products in multiple fulfillment centers
If you only have a single Miami fulfillment warehouse but your customer base is spread across the country, then you’re going to be shipping long distance often. Access to multiple fulfillment centers allows you to store your products in regions closer to where your customers are located. The result is shorter distances, faster shipping, and cheaper rates.
ShipBob client BAKblade used 5 fulfillment centers to offer all of their customers 2-Day Express shipping and immediately saw a spike in orders. They’ve gone on to double in size each year since partnering with ShipBob.
Expand your customer base
High shipping costs frequently scare off ecommerce buyers, so reducing your logistics costs with ShipBob can bring in new customers. Luxury bath brand Bathorium saw a 70% decrease in US shipping costs after partnering with ShipBob and subsequently expanded their US customer base by 20%.
Grow your business faster
ShipBob gives you the infrastructure, technology, and industry knowledge to scale fulfillment rapidly. After an appearance on Shark Tank, deodorant company PiperWai navigated 6,000% growth by partnering with ShipBob. PiperWai took advantage of ShipBob’s partner ecosystem to quickly integrate their marketing and packaging solutions.
