Sell More Across Australia with ShipBob
By fulfilling orders within Australia, you can save money while expanding your business internationally. It works by bulk shipping inventory to our Sydney and/or Melbourne-based fulfillment centers. That way, you don’t have to pay to ship individual orders internationally, saving money and headache from customs and import duties.
Along with a growing international fulfillment network, ShipBob offers expertise, best-in-class technology, and premium customer support, so you can worry less about logistics operations while expanding into new markets across the globe.
By storing inventory across the globe, you have the opportunity to expand your customer reach while meeting customer expectations around fast, affordable shipping. A strategic distribution strategy has been proven to increase average order value and reduce cart abandonment rate.
Every ShipBob fulfillment center is operated by the same warehouse management system and customer support team to provide the same level of world-class fulfillment, consistency, and transparency throughout our network.
Navigating customs, duties and freight
When it comes to dealing with customs, import duties, and becoming a non-resident importer, ShipBob will walk you through the process of sending freight to our Australian fulfillment center. We’ll work with your current carrier or freight partners, or you can leverage ShipBob’s relationships with cross-border freight specialists.
“I can’t tell you how much of a godsend it was that ShipBob opened an Australia fulfillment center. I hope it dominates that market — the alternatives are terrible. ShipBob truly empowers the world of small businesses.”

“We did a lot of research on where to go for fulfillment. We’d initially been thinking of some more local businesses…but we knew we had plans to scale and grow overseas later on, and that was our biggest reason for choosing ShipBob.”

How ShipBob improves your fulfillment and logistics
Save on fulfillment costs

Store, ship, and grow internationally
Sunglasses brand Ombraz distributed their inventory across 3 fulfillment centers in two different countries. This has allowed them to ship to 55 countries on seven continents.
With ShipBob’s network of fulfillment centers, you can strategically split your inventory across our locations to get your products from point A to point B more quickly and affordably. Storing inventory near your customers helps reduce the shipping zones and costs associated with shipping orders to faraway destinations.
Distributed inventory also helps you stay competitive by offering fast shipping to your customers. When an order is placed, ShipBob’s algorithm automatically selects the warehouse and carrier that will give you the quickest turnaround at the best price. This strategy has helped our merchants bring 13% savings to their bottom line.
At ShipBob, we track your orders from A to Z. Filter orders by status, search for specific orders, see a quick timeline view of where your order is in the fulfillment process (e.g. when an order is picked, packed, or shipped), easily find shipping-related information (e.g., weights, dimensions, or carrier service), and get a quick snapshot of any orders that require action.
With order management software for your direct-to-consumer and wholesale shipments, you can manage subscriptions, make changes to your orders post-purchase, map your store’s shipping options to ShipBob, and automatically share tracking information with your customers.
Reporting and analytics
To provide you with visibility into our operations and performance, and also hold ourselves accountable, ShipBob’s free analytics tool is packed with charts to help you with everything from year-end reporting, to better supply chain decision-making.
Data can be a competitive advantage, and our reports show an analysis of which fulfillment centers you should stock, days of inventory left before you run out, impact of promotions on stock levels, each shipping method’s average cart value, shipping cost, and days in transit, your fulfillment cost per order, storage cost per unit, and much more.
End-to-end customer experience
We care about the customer experience as much as you and strive to be an extension of your team. From custom branded boxes to free plain packaging, ShipBob works with you to provide the unboxing experience you want. We also help you offer the fastest, most cost-effective shipping options to meet your customers’ expectations.
As soon as an order ships, tracking is pushed back to your store. We also offer return management services, allowing customers to generate return shipping labels and track returns, while getting your products processed and back into your available inventory as efficiently as possible.
