Getting Your Non-Conveyables Out the Door
It would be an understatement to say that online sales have exploded over the past 2 years. Indeed, the CBC reported that online sales in Canada have almost doubled in that timeframe , and that U.S. consumers spent a record $204 billion online this past holiday season, according to the Adobe Digital Economy Index.
Whether you’re an E-commerce retailer or a more traditional retailer that had to beef up your online presence, or whether you’re a transportation provider or courier, you’ve all experienced this tremendous growth in online sales.
Sales of Non-Conveyables Increase
It’s not just the online sales of toys, electronics and apparel that has gone up as we all know, it’s also the sale of larger items. Online sales for exercise equipment such as stationary bikes, treadmills, and weights jumped 55% early on in the pandemic, according to the Adobe Digital Economy Index.
Online sales of home furnishings in Canada have also jumped 190% in the first quarter of 2020, according to Statista, which also stated that homeware and furniture sales accounted for 10.6% of all the e-commerce sales in Canada.
The jump in e-commerce sales of non-conveyables has disrupted many retail and delivery organizations.
What are Non-Conveyables?
Non-conveyables are items that are either too large, too bulky, too heavy – or too small – to be handled by conveyor systems used in sorting facilities. Not all products sold fit neatly into a regular sized box, and those items create major pain points for businesses that have to move these products quickly and efficiently to customers.
Consumers are More Demanding Than Ever
A happy customer becomes a repeat customer. We all want to keep our customers happy by providing great shopping and delivery experiences, so that they keep purchasing from us, give us good reviews and recommend our products and services to others.
But consumers are more demanding than ever. One week delivery? Too slow. What, no free delivery? Not acceptable. We’ve all gotten used to free next day delivery and that trend is not going away anytime soon. This creates significant headaches – and additional costs to retailers, especially when it comes to large bulky items.
