Summer ‘23 Release
Introducing Inventory Placement, Long-Term Storage, B2B for 100+ retailers, Netherlands, and more.
Optimize Your Supply Chain
Inventory Placement for Hands-Off Inventory Distribution 🇺🇸
Send your inventory to one US location, and let us do the rest. ShipBob’s Inventory Placement Program (IPP) means your team doesn’t have to manage multi-location inbound shipments or identify the most optimal fulfillment center locations on your own.
We’ve updated our SKU distribution model with improvements to demand forecasting and new logic for hero sites (a fulfillment center that houses all SKUs under one roof to prevent splits), head and tail SKUs (your higher volume and lower volume products), and rebalance points.Request Access
Co-Founder & CEO of Baby Doppler
ShipBob has made the inventory allocation process so much more streamlined for us. All we do is create the WRO sending inventory to a hub location, and then everything is taken care of from there. Inventory Placement is a no-brainer.
Long-Term Storage 🇺🇸
Have excess or slow-moving inventory? Save money by storing surplus inventory in long-term storage with reduced rates.
We’re starting our US rollout with our first long-term facility in California (available for customers storing inventory in any ShipBob California fulfillment center). We will expand this to more dedicated regional sites in the US later this year.Request Access
Receiving Hubs 🇺🇸
Dedicated receiving hubs are transforming our US fulfillment network, improving reliability, accuracy, inventory visibility, and traceability at every step.
ShipBob’s West, Midwest, Northeast, and Southwest hubs are live, with our next hub launching in the Southeast later this Summer. Learn more.
Custom Cluster Picking (ShipBob WMS) 🇺🇸
In addition to flexible picking options for batch, single-order, auto-cluster, and custom cluster, ShipBob WMS now lets you cluster orders with the same custom package type.
Coming in August, your left-hand navigation bar will get some improvements! You will see a:
- Reorganized navigation panel to access pages with fewer clicks
- Modernized account settings page
- New Rules page to view and manage order rules from one place
New Product Catalog
(Early Access) 🌏
Our new Product Catalog will make it much easier and faster to manage operations across sales channels, SKUs, variants, and bundles. ShipBob will gradually roll this out to all merchants over the next year.
If you have an Amazon or Shopify store you can get started now.Request Early Access
ShipBob’s ability to service both D2C and B2B has enabled us to build more consistent procedures and practices across our different sales channels.
Along with Chewy, we’re also fulfilling orders through Amazon, as they are the two biggest online pet sales channels in the US. We utilize ShipBob’s EDI solution that is connected to our 3rd party EDI platform SPS Commerce for our Chewy orders, ShipBob’s direct integration with Amazon for FBA orders, and we’re even exploring additional channels that ShipBob supports, such as Walmart.com.
Being an omnichannel brand is critical for us, so we can reach more pet lovers from more places. We’re glad that ShipBob helps us keep up with demand from all the places we reach our customers.Stephanie Lee, Co-CEO at PetLab Co.
B2B, Your Way, for 100+ Retailers 🇺🇸
With the ability for consumers to buy in store, buy online, and even buy online and pick up in store, it’s difficult to grow market share unless you sell through multiple commerce channels.
You can connect to over 100 retailers through seamless EDI integrations, launching your business across a variety of channels including Amazon, retailer dropshipping programs, and selling in brick-and-mortar shops.Speak to a B2B expert

Meet Channel-Specific Requirements For NetSuite 🌏 & Walmart 🇺🇸
Starting in late July, we’re improving order syncs for our NetSuite and Walmart integrations, so we can apply sales channel-specific rules (like priority and carrier restrictions) and provide you with better visibility into the sales channels where your orders originated from.
Optimize Your Supply Chain
ShipBob’s WMS makes it almost impossible to do things wrong. Eliminating the potential for human error during picking and packing has been great. That was our biggest problem before. Last time I checked, our error rate was less than 1%. We’re shipping out over 10,000 orders per month.
VP of Operations of Bunker Branding
ShipBob has been a big help with us hitting international markets, having one central system to fulfill orders in the US, Australia, and Canada. We are able to penetrate those markets better because more customers will actually get the glasses they ordered in days instead of weeks.
Operations Manager at Pit Viper
Learning to tailor our sales strategy, marketing, and packaging to each retailer’s requirements has been a challenge, but that’s where ShipBob really comes in handy. ShipBob is EDI-compliant with dozens of popular retailers, and their API integrations make it possible for them to fulfill orders according to each retailer’s compliance guidelines.
COO of The Adventure Challenge
Since switching to ShipBob from other 3PLs, our overall customer rating has been climbing steadily to get closer to our previous nearly perfect 5/5 rating, I believe largely due to improved shipping performance and service levels provided by ShipBob.
Co-Founder & CEO of Baby Doppler
Connect & Build Anything
If we experience any issues with syncing orders between systems, there’s one place we go to reconcile it. ShipBob is connected to our ERP, NetSuite, which is our single source of truth. Now we only have one place to troubleshoot and resolve potential issues across all logistics.
