Indiana Fulfilment Services
Everyone wants to offer their customers affordable 2-day shipping, but not everyone has access to the resources and distribution infrastructure to keep up with big retailers and marketplaces like Amazon. So how do small to mid-size ecommerce companies compete when customers expect affordable and fast shipping?
Hiring a third-party logistics (3PL) provider like ShipBob allows you to adopt the infrastructure, technology, and shipping capacity of a big-box retailer without having to spend time and money on managing logistics on your own.
ShipBob is a best-in-class fulfilment provider with a growing distribution network. With ShipBob, you can store your inventory and ship from multiple fulfilment centre locations. Rather than ship from one fulfilment centre in Indiana, you can choose one or more fulfilment centres across the globe to expand your customer reach, provide more shipping options at an affordable cost, and save time and money in the long run.
After switching to ShipBob just four months later in November, we are reaching $160,000 a month in revenue — that’s 300% growth

Ship like a big-box retailer
The reason big-box retailers are able to offer such fast and affordable shipping is because they are equipped with a large distribution footprint. Keeping your products closer to your customers reduces the number of shipping zones that each package must cross, and the fewer zones your package crosses, the less it costs to ship.
With ShipBob, you can store inventory in multiple locations based on where your customers live. ShipBob has a fulfilment centre located Illinois, so Indiana ecommerce companies can keep some product nearby to ship to local customers at an affordable price.
ShipBob’s dashboard also comes with built-in inventory and order management tools that provide visibility into the fulfilment process. By managing logistics all in one place, you get access to advanced data and analytics to help you make better business decisions. We’ll help you streamline your supply chain, expand your distribution, analyse purchasing trends, and much more.
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 found adding 2-Day Shipping increased their conversions 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.
100% Coverage Across the Continental US
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.
We ship all over the world
We use our network of fulfillment centers to help you strategically split and manage your inventory to reduce shipping costs and transit times.
