What is travel and tourism fulfillment?
Travel and tourism retail fulfillment involves the picking, packing, and shipping process of product that include:
- Tourism marketing collateral
- Travel tech (chargers, luggage scale, etc.)
- Travel bags and bottles
- Flight accessories (pillows, eye mask, etc.)
- And much more
ShipBob’s order fulfillment process
ShipBob takes care of the entire order fulfillment process for you, so you can save time, money, and headaches.
Get a glimpse inside one of our fulfillment centers:
ShipBob’s proprietary fulfillment software automates and optimizes the picking, packing, shipping, and delivery processes. Our technology connects your stores to our fulfillment center network to provide real-time order tracking information, visibility into inventory levels, and forecasting projections.
Our software even routes each order to the fulfillment center that is closest to the customer, which speeds up the picking and packing process so orders are shipped quickly.
Our expansive networks allows you split inventory across multiple fulfillment center locations based on where your customers are located. That way, you can ship orders out from the closes fulfillment center to the order’s destination to not only speed up last-mile delivery but also optimize shipping costs.
We also negotiate shipping discounts on your behalf through major carriers like Australia Post. These bulk discounts also help you reduce shipping costs (from expedited or 2-day to international shipping).
Built-in inventory management
ShipBob’s platform comes with built-in inventory management software that allows you to closely track inventory levels at each location, view order status in real time, identify slow-moving inventory, set reorder point notifications to prevent stockouts, and much more.
Go global with international fulfillment
Although online shopping allows access to your products from customers all over the globe, international fulfillment services present entirely new challenges. Different countries have various regulations, tariffs, taxes, and requirements for incoming shipments, making it difficult to navigate the international landscape.
“There’s a pair of Ombraz on every continent, so international shipping is very important to us — not only in terms of costs but also the customer experience. When I found out ShipBob was expanding into both Canada and Europe, I knew we wanted to expand our physical footprint with them. This would offer us the ability to reduce taxes and tariffs that come with international shipping.”
Nikolai Paloni, Co-Founder of Ombraz Sunglasses
ShipBob’s growing international network allows you to expand into new markets with ease and provide a consistent customer experience no matter where they live.
How ShipBob works
Partnering with ShipBob as your 3PL is easy. We offer fast onboarding, direct integrations with leading ecommerce platforms, and inventory and order management tools to provide transparency into the entire fulfillment and shipping process.
“We were working with a competing 3PL that had a good distribution network but did not keep promises and had a lot of order errors. As an emerging company, brand recognition and loyalty were key to our business, so we ultimately decided to move to ShipBob. From day one of transitioning to ShipBob, we’ve appreciated the hands-on time spent with us.”
