What is gaming fulfilment?
Gaming fulfilment involves the storage of a variety of games, from board games to video games. Whether items are packaged in cardboard or plastic, gaming items are often delicate and require safe, reliable warehousing, picking and packing, and shipping.
How ShipBob helps you grow your gaming online store
ShipBob partners with entertainment businesses to optimise their supply chain and take time-consuming logistics tasks off their plate. By outsourcing fulfilment to ShipBob, you can focus on more important tasks, rather than spending all your time and money on logistics operations. Here are few benefits of partnering with ShipBob.
With ShipBob, ecommerce business owners can spend less time and money on inbound and outbound logistics, knowing that inventory warehousing management is being taken care of. We provide the warehouse infrastructure needed, including worldwide locations, technology, and expertise. Once we receive your inventory, we follow standard processes to optimise storage to help save you on costs.
Inventory management and forecasting
It’s important to have a system in place to track inventory to prevent stockouts. ShipBob offers built-in inventory management and inventory forecasting tools to help you keep track of your inventory and make better decision. Using the ShipBob dashboard, you can closely track inventory levels at each location, identify slow-moving inventory, set reorder notification points to, and much more.
ShipBob is a leading fulfilment provider that operates distribution centres across the globe. You have the option to split inventory across fulfilment centres based on where customers are located. For instance, if an order comes in from Canada and you have inventory stored in our Canadian warehouse, we will fulfil and ship the order from there — no passing through customs required.
Advanced data and analytics
ShipBob’s analytics and reporting tool can help you make better inventory management decisions. By connecting our merchant dashboard to our technology, we’re able to provide you with insights into fulfilment performance, how we’re hitting our SLAs, visibility into order status and inventory counts, and much more. You can track inventory movement in real time, including when inventory is being received, stowed or put away, picked, packed, and shipped with the carrier, which gives you full visibility into the entire process.

Get started with ShipBob
If you want to grow your gaming business sustainably, you need a 3PL you can trust. ShipBob offers everything you need to affordably outsource logistics and get back to what’s most important: improving customer loyalty, increasing profits, and offering exceptional products. Once you connect your store with ShipBob’s technology, you can ship inventory to one or more of our fulfilment centre locations.
Once orders are placed on your online store, we’ll take care of picking, packing and shipping orders on your behalf. Read on to learn the benefits of partnering with ShipBob.
With ShipBob’s network of fulfilment centres, 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 fast 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.
Go Global Easily
If you’re looking to expand into the United States, ShipBob has 2-Day Express Shipping that provides 100% coverage in the continental US from even just one fulfilment centre.
You can also distribute your inventory across ShipBob’s fulfilment centres across all regions of the United States. We leave it up to you to decide where you want us to store your inventory.
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 fulfilment 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 fulfilment centres 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 fulfilment 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.
