Ship groups are groups of order items that share the same shipping  
options. In the default ecommerce site the customer doesn't have the  
ability to specify different ship groups, that is why you see that  
code in the ecommerce application. On the other hand, in the order  
manager application, you can define more than one ship groups (during  
the checkout process).

You can define the suppliers that offer drop shipment services for  
their product in the SupplierProduct entity (there is a flag for  
this): Catalog-->Edit Product-->Suppliers

You can  setup shipping estimate rules in the Catalog-->Store--
