New York Order Fulfillment Services
Order fulfillment services for ecommerce brands.Request a Quote
Fulfillment is one of the biggest timesucks for ecommerce businesses, eating up precious resources and manpower that could better be spent elsewhere. That’s one reason why so many ecommerce businesses outsource fulfillment to a 3PL.
Ecommerce fulfillment requires not only a warehouse and fulfillment team, but also technology that links with your online store. ShipBob is a 3PL with proprietary software that optimizes your shipping, with technology being just one of the things that makes ShipBob a different kind of 3PL.
We also have a unique distribution model called distributed inventory that allows ecommerce brands to store their inventory in multiple fulfillment centers. Let’s say half of your customers are on the East Coast, and the other half are spread across the Midwest and South. Rather than using a single New York fulfillment center, you could store your products in our Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Texas warehouses.
With your inventory stored closer to your customers, each package has a shorter distance to travel, which lowers your shipping zones, delivery rates and speeds up deliveries. This means you can pass savings along to customers and improve their experience by getting products into their hands faster. ShipBob has helped thousands businesses do exactly this.
ShipBob helps New York businesses
ShipBob has customers all over the world, including many in New York state. One New York-based customer, iloveplum realized if they kept shipping only from New York, it would be expensive to ship to the west coast. After analyzing their data, they found where they could provide great coverage to offer affordable 2-day shipping for their customers across the US.
“ShipBob has fulfillment centers all over the US so we’re not limited to shipping from one location. Even though we’re located near their fulfillment center in the Northeast, it’s actually more advantageous for us to ship from their centrally-located Dallas fulfillment center to efficiently reach the majority of where our orders are shipped to: the midwest, south, and east coast.”
Ryan Casas, COO of iloveplum

Track inventory levels
ShipBob’s platform comes with built-in inventory tracking technology that ensures you always have the right amount of product at the right time. You can view inventory counts at each fulfillment center, and even set reorder points so you’re automatically notified when you need to order more product.
“We have a Shopify store but do not use Shopify to track inventory. In terms of tracking inventory, we use ShipBob for everything — to be able to track each bottle of perfume, what we have left, and what we’ve shipped, while getting a lot more information on each order.”
Ines Guien, Head of Logistics at Dossier

How to know when you’re ready to outsource fulfillment
There are many different components of fulfillment, and most ecommerce businesses struggle with many of them. Sometimes these are small, manageable problems, but as order volume grows, these small problems compound and start damaging your business. If you are having issues in any of the following areas, then it may be time to outsource fulfillment:
- Inventory management: Your inventory counts are off and you experience stockouts that hamper your ability to fulfill orders.
- Warehousing: You no longer have space to store your products in an organized, affordable, and accessible fashion.
- Shipping speed: You are struggling to offer fast shipping at a decent margin.
- Shipping costs: You are using one New York fulfillment center and pay for premium shipping when sending packages to customers in the Midwest, West Coast, or in the South.
