Bern Fulfillment Services
With the Switzerland ecommerce market expected to pull in over $11 million by the end of 2021, it’s no wonder more brands are expanding into European regions like Bern, Switzerland.
Launching into international cities like Bern offers a lot of opportunity for Zurich-based businesses to increase sales and international online brands to reach more customers.
But international shipping comes with its challenges, including higher shipping costs and longer delivery times. Not to mention the complexity of cross-border shipping, taxes, and import duties.
With ShipBob, you can conquer these challenges and expand into European countries with ease.
Read on to learn why ShipBob is trusted by fast-growing brands around the world.
As we’ve grown internationally and in our general order volume, we’ve seen satisfaction go up. ShipBob was a key player and significant partner in helping manage what became unmanageable when we were shipping orders out ourselves.

Sell More Across Europe with ShipBob
With an ecommerce brand, there is no limit to expanding your customer base, especially if you partner with ShipBob.
ShipBob is an international 3PL with locations across the globe, including an EU fulfillment center location.
Rather than looking at international shipping and fulfillment as a hassle, you can look at it as an opportunity for growth.
ShipBob has pre-built integrations with the top ecommerce platforms and marketplaces to easily connect ShipBob’s technology to all the places you sell online. Once synced and ready to go, your store automatically sends each new order to ShipBob, where your inventory is stored in their fulfillment centers across different regions of the United States and/or in different countries.
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.

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.
ShipBob can help you streamline your ecommerce fulfillment strategy so you can grow your business faster.
“When I found out ShipBob was expanding into Europe, I knew we wanted to expand our physical footprint with them. This would offer us the ability to reduce taxes and tariffs that come with international shipping. We want everyone to get their Ombraz in a few days or less with no duties at delivery.
Our goal is to remove the barriers to purchase. Now, a customer can get their package without spending an extra 25 euros on duties and taxes after purchasing a pair of sunglasses.
We found that sending inventory to Europe involved less paperwork and was faster than expected. The process of getting inventory sent to ShipBob’s fulfillment center location in the EU was very streamlined. ShipBob has helped us extensively throughout the process and we look forward to accelerating our growth outside of North America.”

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.
