Northern California Fulfillment Solutions

If you’re a Northern California-based business or an online store looking to expand into California — you’ve come to the right place!

ShipBob is a premium 3PL trusted by online brands across the US and internationally. Our entire logistics system is powered by the same best-in-class technology. This allows you to store inventory in a fulfillment center in California, then expand into other locations as you grow.

Distributing inventory helps Northern California brands meet customer expectations while reducing shipping costs and transit times.

If you’re ready to take your online brand to the next level, read on to learn how ShipBob works.

“When I was looking for a 3PL, we were a startup growing at a rapid pace and felt that ShipBob understood what that meant because they were also in the same stage. We were able to grow beside ShipBob and they scaled with us.”

Jason Ton, CFO of 100 Thieves

Expand your distribution network with ShipBob

ShipBob offers an international fulfillment network, premium technology, and best-in-class support. 

One of the biggest mistakes online brands make is solely operating out of one fulfillment center close to home. But if your customers live scattered across the US, then using one California fulfillment center will result in higher shipping costs for customers located outside the region.

ShipBob operates several fulfillment centers located in strategic regions across the US, as well as internationally to serve customers outside of the country.

Rather than storing all your inventory in Northern California, you can store it in multiple strategic locations. This way, your shipments cross fewer shipping zones to reach their destination, which lowers shipping rates. 

Since ShipBob’s entire network is powered by the same technology, you can access data and analytics from the ShipBob dashboard, view inventory levels across distribution centers in real time, optimize product allocation, filter orders by status, and much more.

Distributed inventory

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 two-day 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

ShipBob’s 2-Day Express Shipping provides 100% coverage in the continental US from even just one fulfillment center.

You can distribute your inventory across ShipBob’s 15+ fulfillment centers within the United States, or just use one.  We leave it up to you to decide where you want us to store your inventory.  We’ll ship 2-Day express orders in 2 days regardless.

Order management

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.
