Stoke-on-Trent Fulfillment Solutions

Whether you’re a business operates outside of Stoke-on-Trent or you’re looking to serve more customers in England — the UK ecommerce market as a whole generates over 700 billion GPB in revenue.
The downside is shipping to and from the UK can come with its own set of challenges.
But you don’t have to tackle international shipping alone.
ShipBob is a best-in-class 3PL that partners with fast-growing brands and offers a global fulfillment network, including a couple fulfillment locations in England in the UK.
Read on to learn how ShipBob help brands sell more across the globe.
I’ve also been fortunate to ship orders to customers from around the world. The process of shipping internationally to optimize costs has been easy.Best of all, the price that ShipBob charges to ship internationally is less than it costs for me to print a USPS label myself.

Expand Across the UK with ShipBob
ShipBob’s UK fulfillment center locations are powered by ShipBob’s proprietary and centralized warehouse management system, SLAs, and support team to provide the same level of world-class fulfillment and transparency across our network through our dashboard.
If you decide to store inventory in our UK-based location, you will only have to pay import duties once when bulk shipping products to our UK-based fulfillment center location, rather than paying duties on each package.
Along with customs, duties, and becoming a non-resident importer, ShipBob will walk you through the process of sending freight to our UK fulfillment center.
Vice versa, if you’re business operates out of Stoke-on-Trent, you can store inventory in a variety of other global locations to sell more across the globe.
Save time and money with ShipBob, an international 3PL
We offer an international fulfillment network, expertise, best-in-class technology, and premium customer support, so you can worry less about logistics and more on creating a great customer experience.
Unlike other 3PLs, ShipBob’s proprietary technology comes with built-in order and inventory management tools that makes it easy to track inventory in real-time, plus gather insights on fulfillment performance and shipping.
With ShipBob on their side, merchants have seen a significant improvement in average order value and in cart abandonment rate.
“ShipBob has multiple fulfillment centers in the US, one in Canada, one in the EU, and one in the UK. All locations filter back into one centralized warehouse management system, so everything is under the ShipBob umbrella.
By distributing our inventory across these countries and regions, all of our customers are able to get their orders much faster while paying reasonable domestic shipping rates.
We want to continue to spread our brand internationally and are glad that more of our customer base can get better shipping rates and delivery times. We’re still a small operation, but with ShipBob we can be a more global company.”

With ShipBob’s network of fulfillment centers, 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.
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 fulfillment 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 fulfillment centers 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 fulfillment 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.
