Rotterdam Fulfilment Solutions
The Netherlands is the 16th largest market for ecommerce with a revenue of US $19 billion in 2020. Additionally, with an increase of 28%, the Dutch ecommerce market contributed to the worldwide growth rate of 29% in 2020.
That’s why more online brands are looking to sell more across the Netherlands, including the city of Rotterdam.
If you’re looking to sell more in European cities like Rotterdam, ShipBob can help.
Read on to learn how ShipBob’s fulfilment solution works.
When I first started looking at ShipBob, it sounded too good to be true with their international locations that could cover all my bases. We just got started in ShipBob’s Ireland fulfilment centre, and will next expand into their London facility to continue building momentum in the UK.

Why choose ShipBob for international fulfilment?
With ShipBob on your side, you can outsource fulfilment and serve more customers across the globe.
Many brands hesitate to launch into international markets. High cross-border shipping costs and slower last-mile delivery times can put a damper on the customer experience.
To add to the complexity of international shipping, including customs and import duties, and you can see why many ecommerce businesses opt out of growing their business internationally.
But what if you could access international markets by partnering with an international fulfilment partner?
ShipBob is a third-party logistics (3PL) company with a network of fulfilment centres across the globe. US-based businesses can ship to the cities like Rotterdam with ease (or vice versa).
Not only does ShipBob handle all the ins and outs of order fulfilment, but you can bulk ship your inventory to our European fulfilment centre and we’ll distribute from there, rather than having to ship each individual order across the Atlantic.

Every ShipBob fulfilment centre is operated by the same warehouse management system and customer support team to provide the same level of world-class fulfilment, consistency, and transparency throughout our network.
“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.”

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.
