Is there a ShipHype location in Vancouver?
Sorry, we don’t have a location in Vancouver yet. We’ll probably get one there next year but there’s other locations we’re targeting first. With approximately 25% of the Canadian population living in the western part of the country, there’s definitely a need for a 3PL.
Even though we don’t have a location there, we’ve found some options that may be helpful. Although they can be considered our “competitors”, it’s okay. We’re not purposely trying to shoot ourselves in the leg here either. We understand the value we bring as a fulfillment center and if another solution is better suited for our customers, they should know about it.
P.S. We’re not being compensated in any way by these fulfillment centers.
We also can’t guarantee the efficiency or credibility of any of these parties. The purpose of this article is simply to point you in a certain direction. I highly recommend you do your due diligence.

Why should you look for a fulfillment center in Vancouver?
- Your Customers are in Western Canada
- Offer Late Cutoff Times
- Vancouver is beautiful
Your Customers are in Western Canada
If your customers are located in Vancouver, then this makes sense. If most of your customers are located in Toronto (Eastern part of Canada), you don’t need a fulfillment center in Vancouver.
Late Cutoff Times
Vancouver runs on Pacific State Time. What this means is that when it’s 6PM in Canada, it’s 3PM in Vancouver. Ultimately, this means that more orders can go out the same day.
