Islington Fulfillment Solutions
Are you an Islington-based business looking to serve more customers in the UK or expand across the globe?
ShipBob is a best-in-class 3PL that offers a global fulfillment network, including a fulfillment location in the UK.
Though the UK generates over 700 billion GPB in revenue from ecommerce and is one of the largest ecommerce markets in the world, imagine being able to serve UK customers more affordably while expanding into international markets with harming your bottom line.
It’s true that shipping to and from the UK can come with its own set of challenges, but ShipBob eases the pain and prepares your business for success.
Read on to learn how ShipBob help brands sell more across the globe.
“ShipBob has multiple fulfillment centers in the US, one in Canada, one in the EU, and one in the UK, and all locations filter back into one centralized warehouse management system.
By distributing our inventory across these countries and regions, all of our customers are able to get their orders much faster while paying reasonable domestic shipping rates.”

Expand Across the UK with ShipBob
ShipBob is a best-in-class international 3PL that has helped thousands and thousands of brands expand their business and reach more customers.
For UK-based customers or global brands looking to launch into the UK, ShipBob operates UK fulfillment center locations powered by the same proprietary warehouse management system, SLAs, and support team to provide the same level of world-class fulfillment and transparency across our network through our dashboard.
If you decide to store inventory in our UK-based location, you will only have to pay import duties once when bulk shipping products to our UK-based fulfillment center location, rather than paying duties on each package.
To make the inventory shipping process easier, we’ll work with your current carrier or freight partners, or you can leverage ShipBob’s relationships with cross-border freight shipping specialists.
Save money and time with ShipBob
When you outsource fulfillment to ShipBob, you can save time and money while improving your bottom line.
ShipBob partners with major carriers to offer domestic and international shipping rates for businesses looking to expand their reach.
“As our customer base grows, so does our global reach. Having orders shipping internationally, ShipBob’s affordable rates solved our need for international fulfillment capabilities.”
Carl Protsch, Co-Founder of FLEO
Unlike other 3PLs, ShipBob’s proprietary technology comes with built-in order and inventory management tools that makes it easy to track inventory in real-time, plus gather insights on fulfillment performance and shipping.
This way, you can develop a winning ecommerce fulfillment strategy that saves you time and money, while also spending time in the day-to-day operations.
“By encouraging customers to meet a spend threshold for free 2-day shipping, we’ve seen great results without harming our margins. Offering this shipping option to customers who live within ShipBob’s 2-Day Express coverage zone has even increased our AOV in these zones from $75 to $148.”
Ryan Casas, COO of iloveplum
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 found adding 2-Day Shipping increased their conversions 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.
100% Coverage Across the Continental US
If you’re looking to expand into the United States, ShipBob has 2-Day Express Shipping that provides 100% coverage in the continental US from even just one fulfillment center.
You can also distribute your inventory across ShipBob’s fulfillment centers across all regions of the United States. We leave it up to you to decide where you want us to store your inventory.
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.
