Read on to learn more about ShipBob’s capabilities.
When I found out ShipBob was expanding into Europe, I knew we wanted to expand our physical footprint with them. This would offer us the ability to reduce taxes and tariffs that come with international shipping. We want everyone to get their Ombraz in a few days or less with no duties at delivery. Our goal is to remove the barriers to purchase.

Expand your brand into Beligum
Belgium is a great market expand into. In fact, the Belgian ecommerce market is worth over $8 billion.
The biggest advantage of ecommerce is that your customer base is not restricted: you can get customers all across the country, or even the world. But international selling is a challenge: you have to go through customs, pay import duties, and there’s more headache in calculating shipping timelines and costs.
Thankfully, ShipBob is an international 3PL with a team of experts that can help you navigate cross-border shipping.
ShipBob offers fulfilment centre locations across the world with a location in Europe.
By bulk-shipping inventory to our EU fulfilment centre, you can reach Belgian-based customers faster and at a more affordable price.
Prepare for global expansion with ShipBob
ShipBob’s fulfilment solution makes it easy for ecommerce businesses to expand across the world.
In terms of cost-savings, we work closely with top mail carriers to offer shipping discounts on bulk international shipments. You don’t have to pay customs duties on each package and you get premium shipping rates when you bulk ship your inventory to our fulfilment centres.
To further save on costs and reduce transit times, ShipBob operates fulfilment centre locations across the world, from the US to Australia (see our locations here).
Once you have an understanding of where your customers are located, you can expand into multiple locations and strengthen your inventory distribution strategy with access to advanced fulfilment data and insights.
From there, our technology searches the top mail carriers and finds the fastest and most cost-effective routes, so you get the best routes for each package.
ShipBob handles all the details of order fulfilment, and we also provide full transparency into the entire fulfilment process. Using the ShipBob dashboard, you can check real-time inventory counts at each fulfilment centre, set reorder points, view outstanding orders, track packages, and much more.
“We started using a 3PL whose service was okay, but their software was years behind its time and they made false promises. We realised we needed a global fulfilment provider as our customers in the UK/EU were tired of paying for international shipping. People often bought two boxes of needles at $30 each and then paid $60 for shipping on top of that. I always wanted a truly global fulfilment partner — I had been trying to find this solution for years.
ShipBob has multiple fulfilment centres and all locations filter back into one centralised warehouse management system By distributing our inventory across these countries and regions, all of our customers are able to get their orders much faster while paying reasonable domestic shipping rates.”

How ShipBob improves your fulfilment and logistics
Save on fulfilment costs
Coffee creamer brand Prymal joined ShipBob in 2019 and was quickly able to save $8,000 per month on fulfilment costs, while at the same time achieving 4x growth.
Improve your conversion rate
Not only was BAKblade able to scale internationally by partnering with ShipBob, but they find the predictable pricing structure to be helpful as well.
Store, ship, and grow internationally
Sunglasses brand Ombraz distributed their inventory across 3 fulfilment centres in two different countries. This has allowed them to ship to 55 countries on seven continents.
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.
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.
