Ecommerce fulfillment is an ever-shifting puzzle that influences every part of your business. Building the infrastructure and technology necessary to keep up with fulfillment as your business grows can take years. And most ecommerce businesses lack the industry expertise and resources to offer the fastest, cheapest shipping options at cost.
That’s why so many ecommerce companies leverage the experience of a 3PL. But even 3PLs vary widely in their ability to scale quickly and offer the best options. Many 3PLs use old technology or outdated fulfillment models.
ShipBob is a 3PL that stays on the cutting-edge. Instead of using a single Phoenix fulfillment center, ShipBob gives you access to a national network of fulfillment centers. You can follow the data and store your products in regions closer to where your customers reside for reduced shipping costs and transit times.
ShipBob’s best-in-class technology connects to your tech stack and enables comprehensive inventory and order management. The result is a true modern 3PL that can help take your business to the next level.
“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’s fulfillment software.”
Sarah Ribner, Co-Founder, PiperWai
How we handle Phoenix fulfillment
Fulfillment with ShipBob starts with connecting your ecommerce store to ShipBob’s platform. You then ship your products to our fulfillment centers (you can spread out your inventory based on where your customers are), where we store them securely.
ShipBob is notified when an order is placed on your online store, and our technology routes the order to the nearest fulfillment center to the customer. Automatically a picking list and packing slip are generated, and the order is picked, packed, and shipped.
You can easily track inventory and monitor orders throughout the fulfillment process from your ShipBob dashboard.

Technology and infrastructure are just two of the things that make ShipBob a different kind of 3PL. Here are some of the tools and features you get when you partner with ShipBob.

Bring down shipping costs
With your products stored in regions closer to your customers you’ll pay less to ship cross-country.
Health and wellness brand Synchro left ShipBob for another 3PL and saw their logistics costs dramatically rise; they returned to ShipBob and immediately started saving money and shipping faster. They now use two ShipBob fulfillment centers to offer 80% of their customers guaranteed 2-day shipping via ground while averaging 3,000 monthly orders.
Save manual labor
Ecommerce business have more productive ways to devote manpower than packing boxes. Tutu brand iloveplum spent 6 hours packing boxes and shipping orders each day before ShipBob. After partnering with us, they not only saved manpower but saw a 267% increase in sales in under a year.

Are you ready to outsource your order fulfillment?
Building a smooth fulfillment process is a huge challenge without expertise in fulfillment logistics. Few ecommerce businesses can devote significant time to mastering fulfillment, but a 3PL can hand you the fulfillment centers, technology, and industry knowledge you need. You can likely benefit from a 3PL if:
- Your order volume is rapidly increasing and your in-house fulfillment is lagging behind
- You are running out of space to store your products
- You want to speed up delivery times
- You have a single Phoenix fulfillment warehouse and are paying a steep premium for cross-country shipments
