Shipbob opens fulfilment centre and raises USD 40 million
Shipbob has inaugurated its largest fulfilment centre to date in Chicago IL (USA). The move will further streamline fulfilment and offer next-day and two day shipping to e-commerce businesses.
At 9,754 sqm, the new facility, which will store more than three million units by December, is six times larger than the previous Chicago location and more than double the size of any other fulfilment centre in the Shipbob network. The new Chicago platform has swift access to intermodal transport services as it is located next to a BNSF rail yard.
The company also announced also that it has raised USD 40 million in series C funding led by Menlo Ventures, with additional participation from existing investors. (mw)
