Looking for a Bochum fulfilment solution?
Whether you’re a Bochum-based business or you’re looking to expand into Germany, you’ve come to the right place.
ShipBob has a fulfilment centre located in mainland Europe (in Poland), so you can reach German customers in 1 business day and other European markets fast and affordably.
Read on to learn about ShipBob’s international fulfilment solution.
There’s a pair of Ombraz on every continent, so international shipping is very important to us — not only in terms of costs but also the customer experience. When I found out ShipBob was expanding into both Canada and 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.

Sell More Across Europe with ShipBob
By partnering with ShipBob, you can sell more across Europe and meet customer expectations around fast, affordable shipping. ShipBob operates locations across the globe, including an EU fulfilment centre location in Poland.
With ShipBob’s European fulfilment centre located near the border of Germany, ShipBob customers can reach Polish and German customers in 1 business day, France in 2-3 days and Spain within 4-5 days.
Once you ship inventory to us, you can view real-time inventory levels, order information and shipping details across all physical locations and sales channels using one login.
Having this level of visibility takes the complexity out of cross-border shipping by helping to avoid additional customs and import duty requirements, which can be frustrating for consumers and potentially negatively affect conversion rates.
If you want to sell more across Europe, it might be time to partner with ShipBob.
Why partner with an international 3PL?
A 3PL with global fulfilment services allows fast-growing ecommerce businesses to expand their customer base and launch into new markets.
There are many factors that ecommerce businesses must account for, such as higher shipping costs and longer last-mile delivery times.
However, direct-to-consumer (DTC) brands can rely on a fulfilment partner like ShipBob to provide the necessary infrastructure and technology needed to go global.
Rather than looking at international shipping and fulfilment as a hassle, you can look at it as an opportunity for growth. The faster you can get packages out the door and the more you can reduce shipping costs, the quicker your business will grow.
“We want to continue to spread our brand internationally and are glad that more of our customer base can get better shipping rates and delivery times. We’re still a small operation, but with ShipBob we can be a more global company.”
Wes Brown, Head of Operations at Black Claw LLC
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.
