Cutting Edge Delivery Methods for Table Saws
Summer’s almost over, and renovation work that was happening outside like decks and fencing, will start moving to inside the home with things like upgrading the kitchen, replacing hardwood floors and finishing basements for in-laws or potential rental opportunities.
That good ol’ table saw that was cutting up deck boards all summer long may be getting long in the tooth (saw pun intended!), and it may be time to replace it. Retailers want to get those new tables to their customers as quickly and efficiently as possible.
The Table Saw Market is expected to grow in Canada
The global market for table saws was estimated at US$ 617M in 2022, and is projected to increase at a CAGR of 4.3% from 2023 to 2031, according to Transparency Market research Inc. North America represents a significant portion of those sales, and Canada a hotbed of new construction and home renovations.
Table Saws Are Not Easy To Deliver To Retail Stores or to Customers
Let’s face it: table saws are not meant to be easily mobile like circular saws or power drills. This means there are a number of challenges when trying to fulfill customer orders for table saws:
- Table saws are big and heavy
- Table saws are not easily handled by conveyor belts
- Table saws take up a lot of space in a warehouse
- Table saws may require 2 staff to deliver to a customer location
Logistics Challenges for Table Saw Shipments
In a typical supply chain scenario, the table saws go from the manufacturer to a distribution center (first mile); then from the distribution center to a fulfillment facility (second mile or middle mile); and then finally from that location to either a retail store or to the customer (last mile).
Each of these steps must deal with the fact that table saws are large and bulky items that are not easily handled by conventional shipping methods. Different logistics companies are hired to fulfill a portion of the trip, and you need to make sure the staff is properly trained to handle such heavyweight equipment. Multiple touch points and transit points means delay in delivery, and customers are highly demanding when it comes to delivery times.
