Post-pandemic playbook: Forget mega-warehouses, it’s all about local

A key component of micro-fulfilment is rethinking the role of the retail store, which now needs to function like a warehouse and bricks-and-mortar shop, says Maggie Barnett, COO of ShipHero, the fulfillment network partner for Shopify. “Some of our large beauty and fashion brands have a prolific real estate footprint, so they want to leverage that — even if people aren’t necessarily visiting those stores at 100 per cent capacity,” Barnett says.

The biggest threat to UPS and FedEx isn’t Amazon. It’s the gig economy.

When a transaction goes well, gig companies can provide a level of service the parcel giants can’t, according to Aaron Rubin, CEO of e-commerce fulfillment startup ShipHero. He points to the difference in experience. Beyond same-day service, gig startups often offer live tracking and text updates for each order. The delivery workers knock on the door and (pre-COVID) hand orders to customers‚ creating contrast with opaque and sometimes theft-prone deliveries offered by traditional carriers.

“You’re starting to see more Amazon packages show up at your door, more Grubhub, Doordash … where it’s this fantastic experience. And that opens your eyes to, well, this is the way the world could be. Why is it not like that?” Rubin said.

Q&A with the Cofounders of ShipHero, a Fulfillment Provider Whose Revenue Quadrupled in 2020

US e-commerce grew 32% in 2020, fueling demand for digital shopping know-how and logistics expertise. ShipHero is one of a number of companies trying to meet that demand by outsourcing e-comm fulfillment and warehouse management for brands.

ShipHero’s cofounder and CEO Aaron Rubin told Retail Brew that revenue more than quadrupled YoY to $22 million in 2020, up from $5 million in 2019. The company also shipped $5 billion in orders last year, up from $1.7 billion the year before. Rubin said most of this came from growth among existing customers, not new ones.

The company offers two primary services to brands: 1) cloud-based software that helps brands run warehouse operations and 2) a fulfillment service that ships e-commerce orders around the country from its warehouses.

ShipHero hopes to ride the e-comm wave to close its first-ever funding round, with a $50 million goal, Rubin told Retail Brew.
