ShipBob Opens New Fulfillment Warehouse in Dallas
Ecommerce fulfillment service provider ShipBob has opened a new warehouse in Dallas, Texas.
The Dallas facility is ShipBob's fifth fulfillment center and their first in the southern United States.
"We're excited to welcome Dallas to the ShipBob family and continue our mission of creating a network of fulfillment centers close to where our customers reside," said ShipBob CEO and co-founder Dhruv Saxena. "ShipBob may be new to the Dallas area, but with so many ecommerce companies in the region, we're now in the perfect position to help these companies grow their businesses by providing the highest quality shipping and logistics in the region and the country."
Dallas is ShipBob's first warehouse to open since announcing a Series B investment of $17.5 million led by investment firm Bain Capital Ventures. Along with Bain Capital Ventures, this round saw participation from existing investors - Hyde Park Venture Partners, FundersClub, Hyde Park Angels and FJ Labs LLC. The new location will be able to offer customers in the Dallas region same-day shipping, and continues ShipBob's strategy of distributed inventory, a method of providing customers with diverse locations to reduce shipping costs, times and distances.
ShipBob's warehouse will bring new jobs to the area with plans to hire over 100 employees over the course of the next two months. ShipBob has helped more than 1,000 ecommerce companies ship over two million packages to date, with warehouses in Chicago, Brooklyn, Las Angeles, San Francisco, and now Dallas.
