We reached out to ShipBob, as we became more concerned with Brexit and wanted a fulfillment center in the European Union. Beyond taking care of all of our mainland European orders, we quickly became very impressed by ShipBob’s transparency, simplicity, and intuitive dashboard.

Expand your brand into Brussels
The biggest advantage of ecommerce is that your customer base is not restricted: you can get customers all across the country, or even the world.
But international shipping can be a challenge. You have to go through customs, pay import duties, and there’s more headache in calculating shipping timelines and costs.
An international 3PL like ShipBob can help.
ShipBob offers fulfillment center locations across the country with a location in Europe. By bulk-shipping inventory to our EU fulfillment center, you can reach Brussels-based customers faster and at a more affordable price.
Bulk international shipping discounts
ShipBob works closely with top mail carriers to offer shipping discounts on bulk international shipments. You don’t have to pay customs duties on each package and get premium shipping rates when you bulk ship your inventory to our fulfillment centers.
International shipping is much more complicated than domestic shipping: timelines are longer and more complex, and calculating shipping rates and distances can be a hassle. Partner with ShipBob and you can ship the amount of inventory based on demand in certain locations.
From there, our technology searches the top mail carriers and finds the fastest and most cost-effective routes, so you get the best routes for each package.
Inventory & order management
ShipBob handles all the details of order fulfillment, and we also provide full transparency into the entire fulfillment process.
Using the ShipBob dashboard, you can check real-time inventory counts at each fulfillment center, set reorder points, view outstanding orders, track packages, and much more.
How ShipBob improves your fulfillment and logistics
Save on fulfillment costs
Coffee creamer brand Prymal joined ShipBob in 2019 and was quickly able to save $8,000 per month on fulfillment costs, while at the same time achieving 4x growth.
Improve your conversion rate
Not only was BAKblade able to scale internationally by partnering with ShipBob, but they find the predictable pricing structure to be helpful as well.
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.
