Maine Fulfillment Services

Oftentimes, ecommerce businesses are limited in their growth since they don’t have the fulfillment infrastructure needed to compete against the big-box retailers and marketplaces like Amazon who can offer affordable or free 2-day shipping. 

Everyone wants to offer faster, affordable shipping, but pulling it off requires infrastructure, technology, and logistics expertise that some small to mid-size ecommerce companies don’t have access to. 

ShipBob is a third-party logistics (3PL) provider that can solve this problem for you. We operate a global network of fulfillment centers. If your business is located in Maine, you can store inventory at our Pennsylvania location to offer affordable and fast shipping for customers on the East Coast. As your business grows, you can move into more fulfillment centers across the globe.

ShipBob takes care of all-things fulfillment and logistics, so you can offer a better experience for your customers, while saving time and money. 

“We grew our ecommerce business by around 75% last year. The ability to execute as well as we did was due to ShipBob’s team.”

Michael Peters, VP of E-Commerce Operations at TB12

Reduce shipping costs and boost your bottom line

Your average fulfillment company will store all of your inventory in one place and distribute it from there, taking fulfillment off your hands. ShipBob takes this a step further with a method known as distributed inventory. Distributing your inventory means storing your inventory in multiple fulfillment centers in different areas of the country (or the world) to reduce shipping costs and transit times. 

Rather than have a single fulfillment center in Maine, you can see where your customers live and store your inventory in fulfillment centers closer to them. This significantly reduces the distance between your fulfillment center and yours customers. 

ShipBob can benefit your business in other ways as well. Many ecommerce companies struggle with inventory and order management: their inventory counts are off, they run out of stock, and shipments are delayed or cancelled entirely. ShipBob puts your fulfillment process on autopilot with built-in order and inventory management tools. We safely store your inventory and keep it organized so that counts are accurate, and you full visibility into the process from ShipBob’s dashboard.  

By simplifying optimizing your supply chain with ShipBob, you can set your business up for long-term success.

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.

2-Day Express shipping

ShipBob’s 2-Day Express Shipping Program leverages ground shipping as an inexpensive alternative to expedited air shipping, using ShipBob’s network of fulfillment centers with coverage across the US, our algorithm, and integrations with ecommerce checkouts. 

When a customer enters their shipping destination, ShipBob dynamically verifies the delivery zip code and the inventory on-hand at the nearest fulfillment center to display the guaranteed “2-Day Express” option. With 2-day shipping as the standard, this has helped our merchants reduce cart abandonment by 18% and increase their average order value by 97%.

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.

Inventory management

At ShipBob, we empower merchants to manage their inventory with the right tools and guidance. It’s easy to view the status of inventory and quantity on hand across locations at any point in time, identify slow-moving inventory with high storage costs, and gain insights into the performance of units sold over time by channel.

Our inventory management software helps you set reminders to proactively replenish inventory with reorder notifications, bundle your products for promotions, make inventory transfer requests, and much more.

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.
