Interesting geographic breakdown of shipments

We use ShipStation to manage our shipment. It works exceedingly well and helps us get orders out with a lot a good information going automatically to customers. It also compiles statistics about the orders that we’re shipping. We can see cool trends, customer breakdowns and even how quickly we ship (18% the same day, 62% the day after ordering, 10% 2 days later – mostly because of weekends). There’s a map view that shows how many orders we shipped to a particular US state. No surprise that California is #1, but it’s interesting that in the last 30 days (which includes half of the black Friday mayhem) we didn’t ship any to North Dakota, West Virginia, Vermont or Rhode Island.

    The interesting thing is, you shipped to 46 of 50 states in a month! (I’m assuming you cropped AK and HI?) That’s pretty impressive for a little company!

      Oddly, the map doesn’t include AK or HI, not sure why – I think I did ship to both last month though.

    You should do this per capita! Divide the number of orders in a state by that state’s population so that you can see how popular you are in each state proportionally.
