Wisconsin Fulfillment Services
Shipping is one of the most important factors a customer will consider when deciding whether or not to make a purchase. Customers expect low shipping costs and fast deliveries, so if they see costs that are too high or deliveries that take too long, they are likely to abandon their cart.
However, many ecommerce companies struggle to get their shipping costs low enough to compete with the big-box retailers and marketplaces like Amazon, which puts them at a major disadvantage. One way to solve this problem is to outsource fulfillment to a third-party logistics (3PL) provider like ShipBob.
ShipBob is a 3PL that takes it a step further with a modern logistics solutions, including the ability to split inventory across multiple locations. We operate a network of fulfillment centers across the US, Canada, and Europe (including one in Wisconsin; in the Twin Lakes area).
“ShipBob pulls me out of having to deal with the physical labor side of the business. It’s an automated flow that lets me spend less time on things that aren’t making money.”

Optimize fulfillment with ShipBob
Let’s take a closer look at what distributed inventory can do for you. Say that you’ve got customers based in Wisconsin, but the rest of your customer base lives along the East and West Coasts.
If you’re only shipping from a single location in Wisconsin, then each package you send to customers in California or New York will have to travel a long distance to reach its destination. This is what drives up shipping costs.
Big-box retailers get around this by having an extensive distribution infrastructure operating in each state. And, while few ecommerce companies have this type of reach, you can partner with a 3PL like ShipBob and instantly adopt our infrastructure and technology. With a growing fulfillment network across the globe, we can help you radically expand your shipping capacity and scale your fulfillment process.
Distributing your inventory can benefit your bottom line. Lower shipping and fulfillment costs can help you offer more shipping options for your customers, which in turn leads to a higher conversion rate and more savings for your customers. Best of all, you no longer have to spend time fulfilling orders, so you can focus on growth.
How ShipBob improves your fulfillment and logistics

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 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.
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.
