We’re currently storing inventory in some of ShipBob’s Southern California and Chicago facilities, which means that when we receive an order destined for someplace like New York, we don’t have to ship it from all the way across the country. By shortening the transit distance, we get to shorten transit time and reduce the amount of pollution produced in the shipping process. Even in the final stages of fulfilment and last-mile delivery, ShipBob enables us to stay true to our mission!

2-Day Express Shipping
ShipBob’s 2-Day Express Shipping enables fast delivery to 100% of the continental US (even from just one fulfilment centre). Our proprietary algorithm uses a combination of ground, air, and regional carriers to provide high on-time delivery rate.
While 2-Day Express is available for any of our ecommerce store integrations, our top ecommerce channels can even display 2-day shipping badges and estimated delivery dates on product pages to further increase conversions pre-checkout.
Inventory Distribution & Placement
Split your inventory to be closer to your customers, and get optimal, data-driven fulfilment centre location recommendations over time to improve delivery speeds and reduce shipping costs.
ShipBob’s Inventory Placement Program in the US allows high-volume brands to send inventory to one location. Then ShipBob does the rest — from choosing ideal locations and distributing your stock, to proactively rebalancing your inventory levels — giving you time back, lowering your inbound freight costs, and unlocking more affordable 2-day shipping.
No matter where your customers are, ShipBob gets you closer to them. With dozens of fulfilment centers across the US, UK, EU, Canada, and Australia, having ShipBob as your sole fulfilment provider helps you scale into new markets with ease and manage inventory across locations from a single dashboard login.
You can also ship to your customers in 200+ countries, create destination-based rules, and offer a variety of standard and expedited shipping options on your cart, including real-time carrier rates.
Have your own warehouse in the US? Keep fulfilment in-house with ShipBob’s proprietary warehouse management system. You can even centralise logistics across locations by using our WMS in conjunction with our fulfilment centers in other regions and/or countries.
With ShipBob WMS you get warehouse productivity and performance monitoring, multi-location inventory management, optimised picking routes for efficient retrieval, transportation management for optimised shipping carrier routes, and much more.
Don’t just take our word for it — see why ShipBob is trusted by thousands of merchants
If someone is going to treat your products like their own, that’s the most you can hope for in a fulfilment partner. ShipBob does exactly that. The customer experience and brand consistency is really important to us, so to receive that level of support from ShipBob means so much to us. Because we don’t operate our own warehouse, we need to trust a 3PL team that is going to be invested in delivering our products to the best of their ability.
ShipBob is a drastic difference from our last 3PL. They listen and quickly get their customers’ needs live in their software. It feels like a really honest and fruitful relationship. I log on to our ShipBob account and see everything in one place, no matter if I’m looking at our facility in Kankakee, IL, or the ShipBob fulfilment centers in Canada or Europe. I didn’t have to learn different platforms or deal with support representatives at different companies.
Global Warehousing Director
Not all fulfilment companies are created equal. Before we partnered with ShipBob, we worked with a 3PL. When we went viral in 2016 and suddenly had thousands of additional orders to fill, we knew we had to outsource to a different 3PL that could give us the attention we needed, regardless of our size. We moved to ShipBob, and have received dedicated support ever since! We know that the next time we go viral, we will always be ready.

In my experience, ShipBob is a lot more clear and transparent about what customers can expect compared to the other 3PL we used. ShipBob’s analytics dashboard is quite helpful and straightforward. It’s really helpful to have that level of visibility so we don’t have to constantly email back and forth, asking when things will be completed. It saves a lot of time and helps set expectations appropriately.
The deciding factor that sold us on ShipBob was price. International fulfilment can be incredibly expensive, but ShipBob was cheaper than our old provider. ShipBob’s software was also much easier to use than our previous provider’s, and gave us a better picture of what was going on with our orders. Even from overseas, it gave us the visibility and control we would expect from a provider in our backyard.
of A Year of Dates
We’re partnering with ShipBob for every aspect of our shipping, fulfilment, and storage, and we’re relying on them to continue to come up with better technology and solutions, figuring out ways to improve not only the service levels for us, but also cut down on costs. That way, we can leave logistics to ShipBob and keep focusing on what’s most important to use: serving our customers.

FAQs about ShipBob’s ecommerce fulfilment services in Illinois
Below are answers to common questions about Illinois fulfilment centers.
Does ShipBob have a fulfilment centre in Illinois?
Yes! Not only is ShipBob headquartered in Illinois, but it has several fulfilment centers in the state, along with dozens of other fulfilment centers across the US and world.
Where can ShipBob ship to from its Illinois fulfilment centers?
ShipBob offers several domestic and international shipping options from its Illinois fulfilment centers. Brands have the ability to ship to over 200 counties from ShipBob’s Illinois fulfilment centers.
How do shipping zones affect me in Illinois?
Shipping zones are determined by the distance it takes for the package to travel. In Illinois, customers in the Midwest will experience a faster shipping time since the order is shipping to zones 1-3. However, customers farther away (on the West Coast, for example) will have longer shipping times since they’re considered to be located in shipping zones 7 and 8 when shipping from Illinois.
What’s the address of ShipBob’s fulfilment centre in Illinois?
ShipBob has several fulfilment centers in the greater Chicago, Illinois area (see an up-to-date list of ShipBob locations here). ShipBob also has numerous fulfilment centers located throughout the rest of the United States and the world.
What’s the benefit of an Illinois fulfilment centre?
Chicago is the third largest metropolitan city in the United States, home to 2 airports, including O’Hare, one of the world’s busiest airports, and a bustling transportation hub with many national and regional carriers – all making Illinois a great location for a fulfilment centre.
ShipBob’s Illinois fulfilment centers are centrally located in the most populous area of the state in order to quickly fulfil orders for customers in major Midwest and East Coast cities like Minneapolis, Cincinnati, Philadelphia, New York City, and Boston in addition to Chicago. ShipBob works with the regional carrier, United Delivery Service (UDS) in order to deliver same-day and next-day parcels.
What is the population of Illinois?
According to the US Census Bureau, Illinois has a total population of over 12.6 million people. The population of Chicago, the state’s largest city, is over 2.6 million (with close to 9 million in the greater Chicagoland). Due to the large concentration of people and major metropolitan hub, Illinois is a great location for a fulfilment centre. This allows brands to reach customers in and around Illinois easier and cost-effectively.
