Georgia Fulfillment Center for Ecommerce
Order fulfillment services for ecommerce brands.Request a Quote
Shipping and logistics can either be a boon for you business or a weakness. Problems like fulfillment errors, stockouts, and slow deliveries dampen the customer experience and result in lost sales. That’s why many ecommerce businesses turn to a third-party logistics (3PL) provider, which can smooth out these rough edges and streamline your fulfillment.
Ecommerce businesses often seek out 3PL’s with a fulfillment center near the headquarters. This is prudent if your customer base is located exclusively near home, but if your customers live scattered across the US then using one Georgia fulfillment center will result in high shipping costs.
ShipBob is a 3PL fulfillment provider that offers a different solution. We have several fulfillment centers located in strategic regions across the US. Rather than storing all your inventory in Georgia you can store it in multiple fulfillment centers, so that your packages cross fewer shipping zones to reach their destination and you get better shipping rates.
And better rates aren’t all that ShipBob can help you with. We can help make your business more efficient and profitable, boost customer loyalty, and save you precious time. Keep reading to find out how!
Hear from a ShipBob customer like you
ShipBob has thousands of customers. Take Southern company Doris Sleep. Using her order history, Founder Tracey Wallace can understand which ShipBob warehouse she should use next and leverage ShipBob’s locations all over the US as they expand. Best of all, she has time back and gets to deliver the best customer experience without lifting a finger.
“The fact that I don’t have to think about my shipping integration, do anything when someone orders from me, or worry that something might not get to them makes it more hassle-free. With ShipBob, I can maintain my brand experience. It doesn’t end on my store — it lasts through that unboxing experience.”

Order fulfillment services for Georgia-based ecommerce businesses
ShipBob makes getting started simple Here’s how we can start handling retail fulfillment for your business:
- Receive in-depth implementation trainings.
- Sync your store with ShipBob’s technology.
- Ship your products to a ShipBob fulfillment center (or to multiple fulfillment centers).
- We receive a notification each time a customer places an order on your store.
- The ecommerce order is picked, packed, and shipped (with tracking info sent to the customer).
- You can track every step of the process from your ShipBob dashboard.
Inventory control is tricky to master: too much inventory ties up excess capital, while too little inventory leads to stockouts that damage your ability to fulfill orders. ShipBob’s software provides you with a range of tools that make inventory control simple, including real-time inventory tracking and the ability to set reorder points.
Pick and pack services
You and your team have better things to spend precious time on than packing boxes. ShipBob handles the picking, packing, and shipping process, so you can place your focus elsewhere. Standard packing materials are included at no additional cost.
Data reports and analytics
Drawing actionable insights from data is critical to optimizing your business strategy and sustaining growth. With ShipBob, all your data on purchasing trends, inventory levels, and more is collected in one place: your dashboard. Our platform generates distribution metrics and reports that show you areas of improvement.
Is ShipBob the best order fulfillment solution for my business?
ShipBob’s full-stack fulfillment is streamlined end-to-end: integrated with your store and other platforms, partnered with major shipping carriers, and featuring state-of-the-art proprietary software. Add to this our distributed inventory model and you have a 3PL that can truly help your business level-up.
Lower your shipping costs
One of the big advantages of distributed inventory is that you can reduce shipping zones for each package and get better rates. Bathorium, a luxury bath brand, reduced shipping and fulfillment costs by 70% after partnering with ShipBob, even while achieving 20% US growth.
Ship to any location
Ecommerce businesses often use one fulfillment center, and the further a customer lives from that center, the more it will cost to ship to them. Using multiple fulfillment centers with ShipBob eliminates this problem, allowing you to ship to customers all over the country (and even the world). Media company Timbuktu Labs partnered with ShipBob for their groundbreaking book series Rebel Girls, and ShipBob fulfilled 20,000 backer rewards across 75 countries in just a single campaign.
Grow your order volume
Your order volume can only grow as fast as your in-house fulfillment setup can fulfill. Outgrow your fulfillment’s capacity and you end up with fulfillment errors and missed orders. Outsourcing to a 3PL means you can fulfill any amount of orders. CBD company Nature’s Ultra CBD saw their order volume double and then triple, and decided they needed the resources of a 3PL. Since hiring ShipBob they’ve experienced 9,900% year-over-year growth.
Syncing ShipBob with your tech stack is easy
ShipBob’s network of partnerships covers everything from marketing and tax tools to advanced inventory management. We’re integrated with some of the most popular platforms on the planet, including:

How to know when it’s time to outsource order fulfillment
Ecommerce businesses choose to outsource fulfillment to a 3PL for a number of reasons. Logistical difficulties and inefficiencies involved with warehousing, picking/packing, and shipping can damage the customer experience and your bottom line. Furthermore, scaling fulfillment often causes headaches that a 3PL can easily remove. Here are some of the common scenarios in which hiring a 3PL can be beneficial:
- Your order volume is steadily increasing and you are struggling to scale your in-house fulfillment setup fast enough.
- Your inventory and order management systems are inexact or inefficient.
- You want a fulfillment solution that is thoroughly integrated with your store (and other platforms).
- You want to reduce shipping costs and speed up deliveries, but are only using one Georgia fulfillment center.
If the above scenarios match your business, working with an order fulfillment company may help. Whether you need help fine-tuning your fulfillment process, getting lower ecommerce warehousing and storage fees, optimizing for two-day shipping, or kitting, picking, or packing, ShipBob can help. There are many fulfillment needs of a growing ecommerce business, ShipBob is happy to help with any of them.
