WooCommerce should have the ability to ship from multiple locations!
Many companies have different fulfillment centers around the country, some produce and ship A and some produce and ship B. there should be away to integrate this into the shipping costs...
I agree!! This is beyond frustrating! I need the ability to let fedex calculate shipping from more than one shipping location. With some items drop shipped and others shipped locally, I have no way to calculate shipping for customers. Ugh.
AGREED!!!! Many other solutions have this.

Agreed! Here's our client's scenario:
They have a west coast (CA) and an east coast (VA) fulfillment center. We want to setup shipping regions to base the shipping costs on the ship-out location of a particular fulfillment center. i.e. VA to FL costs less than CA to FL.
I like the idea of being able to setup various fulfillment centers (drop ship locations) and then apply any one of those to a particular product. Which would then work with the shipping tables to calculate the cost.
I have a similar situation to M Shawn DeWolfe....I will be using the Vendors WooCommerce Extension. I will have multiple sellers / vendors.
If a customer places an order from several different vendors, I would like to automatically send shipping labels to the Vendors. The products would be shipping from different locations to the same location. Automating this process would be a huge time saver.

The title of this idea should be changed to Drop Ship functionality.

I agree on this. I need the drop ship functionality badly. I need to be able to specify a supplier for each item.
I've seen many shopping carts with integrations to https://www.ordoro.com/ for dropshipping.
Order e-mails are sent to each supplier automatically so they can dropship the order.
You can take a look at how https://www.ordoro.com/ works to build something similar.
This feature would be great if it could be built as a woo extension. So we don't have to pay for a third party system.

I am working on something like this for a very similar problem (one cart / e-commerce system with multiple item sources-- different sellers). I will do a follow up when I have something to show off.
I agree. I wish that you could have a like a check box on each product that says "I will ship this" or "This product is drop shipped". If the drop shipped option is selected then it should ask you to enter the address from where the product will be drop shipped. Then the UPS & USPS shipping calculators can calculate the shipping costs correctly. I don't know why this doesn't exist since drop shipping is so popular. I'm frustrated that I may have to have someone custom program this.
