ShipBob: Our mission is to democratize fulfillment
ShipBob, the cloud-based logistics platform for small and medium-sized businesses, has announced its first fulfillment center in the United Kingdom.
With their latest international location, which is in very close proximity to the Heathrow Airport and major logistics hubs, ShipBob customers can reduce international shipping costs, improve
the customer experience with shorter transit times while removing import duties and tariffs, and increase conversions for consumers in the UK market, which includes England, Scotland, Wales
and Northern Ireland.
Analysts expect that Brexit will impact cross-border ecommerce in the UK, projecting a 7.3% decrease in 2021. Working with a global logistics solution with locations in the UK and the European Union ensures you’re able to fulfill your promise of fast and affordable shipping.
ShipBob is partnering with Royal Mail and DPD carriers, securing discounted shipping rates and fast delivery times. Using Royal Mail and DPD, the average transit time from ShipBob’s UK
facility to the majority of the UK is 1-4 business days.
“Our mission is to democratize fulfillment for companies of all sizes around the world. We are excited to help direct-to-consumer brands expand their reach into the United Kingdom,” said
Dhruv Saxena, CEO and co-founder of ShipBob. “Like our entire fulfillment network, our UK fulfillment center will be held to the ShipBob promise of reliable, fast, and inexpensive shipping
with end-to-end transparency from one dashboard, managing all of our customers’ sales channels.”
