ShipBob launches first UK-Based fulfilment centre in the UK 04 March 2021

Launches third international location plus two new US sites

ShipBob, a cloud-based logistics platform for small and medium-sized businesses, announced its first fulfilment centre in the UK. In today's convenience economy, this enables eCommerce businesses around the world to thrive within the UK by addressing their customers' expectations of fast and affordable shipping.

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 fulfil 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.

Additionally, ShipBob just opened two new US fulfilment centres in Phoenix, Arizona and Louisville, Kentucky to further expand their regional fulfilment network and increase capacity in the US. These are their twelfth and thirteenth US fulfilment centres.
