Owner, Ship Sunshine & dropSHIP Like It’s Hot | Denver

Finding a shipping and fulfillment partner is a challenge for small businesses. Anna Costello’s company, dropSHIP Like It’s Hot, offers an innovative approach to onboarding new clients that helps small businesses scale to global businesses. The company helps companies work with manufacturers to ship inventory to the dropSHIP Like It’s Hot warehouse, assists with setting up the shipping functions on their websites, and shows them how to ship product in the most cost-effective manner. It can also custom print branded merchandise, store and pack products, help with kitting and ship worldwide.

Costello works with businesses to remove roadblocks and has redefined the fulfillment service industry by partnering with both small and large clients for mutual success. Collaboration is important, and Costello’s skills in networking and connecting people have helped clients grow their brands.

Her other business, Ship Sunshine, provides custom gift boxes for corporate gifts, real estate closing gifts, and other occasions. The company has a Sunshine It Forward program, which sends boxes to people who need a little extra support, such as personal hygiene items for people experiencing homelessness or school supplies for students and teachers. The program is funded by customer donations and 2% of Ship Sunshine profits.

Costello serves on the Programs Committee of CIVIC of the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce and is a coach for the Impact Denver program of the Denver Metro Chamber Leadership Foundation. She also volunteers at Soul Dog Rescue.
