Self-fulfillment can be time-consuming and inefficient, but by using a 3PL such as ShipBob, through sending inventory to one or more of our fulfillment centers, companies in New York can eliminate the time staff spends on packing and shipping as well as reduce shipping rates.
ShipBob’s order fulfillment services for NYC based ecommerce companies
ShipBob has multiple order fulfillment centers strategically placed across to the United States, including one in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania that provides guaranteed 2-day shipping to the greater New York City area. If you’re looking for a New York fulfillment center, learn why ShipBob is a great option.
ShipBob’s fulfillment center in the Northeast is part of a network of warehouses that allows ShipBob’s clients to strategically distribute their inventory across the United States. This practice, called distributed inventory, helps ecommerce retailers fulfill orders more quickly and affordably than self-fulfillment or storing all inventory at one centralized location. You can efficiently reach your customer in New York city while saving lots of money on shipping costs and warehousing.
Working with a third-party fulfillment provider that owns its own fulfillment center network provides a wide variety of benefits for your ecommerce store, including the ability to offer two-day shipping to customers across the continental US.
With ShipBob, it’s fast and easy to track inventory levels so you know when to repurchase items or send additional inventory to their fulfillment centers, ensuring that customers never experience a stockout. ShipBob even sends automatic reorder notifications when your inventory runs low. Working with a third-party fulfillment provider can help you manage inventory in an efficient and transparent way, even when it is stored in the fulfillment center.
When you need to track the delivery of a package, look up customer information, or pull up order metrics, it’s easy to do from the ShipBob dashboard. It’s updated in real-time and always available. ShipBob’s easy-to-use software allows you to track the entire fulfillment process in any of their fulfillment center in real time. In addition, ShipBob integrates with the major ecommerce platforms, which helps automate the fulfillment process in a way that saves you time and money, making it easier for orders to be picked, packed, and shipped as soon as they are submitted.
Above all else, as a third party logistics company, ShipBob wants to help your business grow and succeed, so we guarantee high-quality service to our clients, including same-day fulfillment for all orders placed by noon locally. You can also reach our dedicated fulfillment experts by submitting a ticket through the dashboard itself. We also staff our own fulfillment centers, so there are always representatives at our fulfillment centers to help you succeed.
ShipBob works with New York City brands
Hear from local natural deodorant brand Piperwai on how partnering with ShipBob after their Shark Tank episode aired made fulfilling demand for their 6,000% increase in revenue possible.
“Working with ShipBob has made scaling our business at such a rapid rate feasible and sustainable. ShipBob’s technology is far superior to what other 3PLs have. As soon as an order is placed on our Shopify Plus store, it’s pushed to ShipBob. Their team makes sure our products are packed properly in our custom packaging to create a curated brand experience.”
Sarah Ribner, Co-Founder, PiperWai
Another New York-based brand, iloveplum, has been using ShipBob’s fulfillment services for a couple years, and they’re not limited to shipping from one location. Even though they’re located near their East Coast fulfillment center, they found it’s actually more advantageous for them to ship from elsewhere.
After analyzing their order history, they chose to first store inventory in ShipBob’s centrally-located Dallas fulfillment center to efficiently reach the majority of where our orders are shipped to: the midwest, south, and east coast. It also has great coverage for ShipBob’s 2-Day Express Shipping Program, which lets them offers a guaranteed but low-cost 2-day shipping option on qualifying orders.
“If we kept shipping only from New York, it would be expensive to ship to the west coast. Since partnering with ShipBob, we’ve been able to scale our business from $300,000 in sales per year to over $1.1 million due to infrastructure, technology, and scalability improvements.”
Ryan Casas, COO of iloveplum
