Streamlining your BBQ Delivery Process
Victoria Day marks the unofficial start of summer in Canada, and weather permitting, the start of the BBQ season. Nothing beats the taste of meat and vegetables roasted to perfection on the grill, and it’s even better when shared with family and friends. Canadians just love spending time outdoors at home in their backyards or at the cottage.
Outdoor Home Improvement Boom
Over the past few years with the pandemic and people spending more time at home, consumer spending on backyard improvements in North America has jumped up significantly. According to a WFSU article, deck construction is up 275% and hiring landscapers is up 238%. Following suit, the barbecue grill market value is estimated at US$5.1B worldwide according to Statista.
Outdoor Appliances Supply Chain Issues
High consumer demand for BBQ grills - and outdoor appliances like fire tables and heat lamps - coupled with global supply chain issues means there have been significantly delays in getting these products delivered to consumers.
Customer Order Delivery Challenges
While struggling with those issues, retailers and distributors have also had to deal with the complexity and cost of reliably getting these orders delivered to their customers. Supply chain issues have also hit the transportation sector hard with staff shortages and rising fuel prices, so shipping costs have gone up as well.
For larger shipments, it’s a common practice for distributors and retailers to get multiple shipping quotes from different transportation companies, and then to figure out what’s the best match for which shipment at that particular point in time. While this may appear to be saving you shipping costs upfront, you may be wasting more staff time managing the whole process and it likely ends up costing you more in the long run.
Pick a Reliable Shipping Partner
We recommend picking 1 or 2 solid transportation partners that can deliver your orders to your clients quickly, efficiently and as cost-effectively as possible. Building a strong relationship with these partners will be more beneficial cost-wise and better for your customer experience in the long run, rather than chasing after the next penny in your shipping dock.
