How to Avoid Outdoor Furniture Delivery Issues This Summer

Posted by High Energy Transport on 4 January 2023
How to Avoid Outdoor Furniture Delivery Issues This Summer

Although winter has just started in Canada, smart outdoor furniture companies are already planning their summer season in terms of getting their goods to their customers.

The staycation trend of the past few years is expected to continue in 2023, and consumer spending on backyard improvements and outdoor décor have increased substantially:

  • The overall outdoor furniture market is projected to grow by approximately 6% compounded annually from 2021 to 2027 (Global Market Insights)
  • Online sales of home furnishings in Canada have jumped 190% in the first quarter of 2020 (Statista)
  • The worldwide BBQ market is estimated at US$5.1B (Statista)
  • Deck construction is up 275% and hiring landscapers is up 238% (WFSU)

 

On-Going Supply Chain Issues

There is a continued high consumer demand for outdoor goods such as furniture (tables, dining sets, sofas, chairs, sectionals), BBQ grills, fire tables, heat lamps, etc., as well as deck building materials such as lumber, wood, composites, railings and decorative hardware.

The global supply chain issues we’ve been experiencing for the past few years are still with us and will impact getting these products delivered to consumers, especially when being shipped in from overseas. The overall transportation sector has been hit hard with staff shortages and rising fuel prices, so shipping costs have gone up as well.

 

Final Mile Delivery Challenge: Finding a Reliable Transportation Partner

Whether you’re an outdoor furniture OEM, an online seller, a home décor retailer or even a home improvement or hardware chain, getting your goods delivered to your customers quickly and cost-effectively remains a huge challenge to your business, and one that significantly affects overall customer experience.

You need a transportation partner that can:

  • Pick up your shipment at the Port of Montreal
  • Handle your rail shipments
  • Destuff your containers
  • Warehouse your shipments when required
  • Cross-docking your shipments to save time and costs
  • Transport your products to markets across Canada (e.g. Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Vancouver, etc.)
  • Deliver directly to your customers’ homes or business locations

 

High Energy Transport is Your Reliable Transportation Partner

The Best Way to Deliver Sheds to Your Customers

Posted by High Energy Transport on 3 August 2022
The Best Way to Deliver Sheds to Your Customers

 

With summer in full swing, many homeowners have been as busy as bees in their gardens planting petunias and begonias, or maybe tomatoes and jalapeno peppers. Many home gardeners have purchased new gardening tools to till the soil, plant new seeds and reap their harvests.

With all those gardening tools comes the challenge of where to store everything in a neat and orderly manner? The garage is an obvious answer, but many homes don’t have one or only have a carport. Sometimes our garages are packed full of our stuff and it’s hard to get easy access to what we’re looking for.

The shed is a staple of many residential and commercial properties, and is an excellent way to store all the gardening paraphernalia. Many homeowners have ordered new sheds to replace the old one, and some even have purchased mini greenhouses to house their vegetables and flowers.

The global market for outdoor sheds is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2021 to 2028 – from USD$6.6B to USD$9.6B – according to a report from The Insight Partners.

 

How best to deliver sheds to your clients?

If you’re a retailer or distributor, you’re painfully aware that sheds are bulky and overweight items that aren’t easily handled by automated conveyor systems, and they must be manually handled by your warehouse staff. That ties up your staff and prevents them from performing more efficient tasks, and also exposes them to the risk of injury if the sheds aren’t handled properly or if something happens in the process.

 

Let a trusted partner handle your sheds for you: High Energy Transport Inc.

Focus on your core business of selling products and servicing your customers with your automated conveyor systems, but let High Energy Transport Inc. handle your bulky non-conveyables like sheds for you.

We have a centrally-located warehouse in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) that’s easily accessible from most major highways, which means those oversized sheds don’t even need to go in and out of your facilities, which saves you time, effort and money. Talk about efficiency!

Our qualified staff has both the expertise and the experience to handle non-conveyables, and we’ll deliver directly to your customers on your behalf with our Final Mile Delivery services. We want to become part of your team, and be your delivery mechanism to make your business more efficient.

 

Contact Us Today

If we haven’t already convinced you that we’re the best partner to deliver your non-conveyables, contact us today and we’ll show you how we can help improve your delivery business.

We’re sure you’ll see an improvement in your efficiency, profit and overall customer satisfaction as you focus on doing what you do best: servicing your clients.

Increase Your HVAC Profit with High Energy Transport Inc.

Posted by High Energy Transport on 1 June 2022
Increase Your HVAC Profit with High Energy Transport Inc.

Summer’s not officially here yet, but in Ontario and many parts of Canada we’ve already had our first heat wave of the season in May, with temperatures feeling like 34°C the week before Victoria Day weekend. Definitely time to crank up the AC!

Many of us have unfortunately discovered that the home Air Conditioning unit is on the fritz and is not delivering that cool relief we need to cope with the heat of the summer.

The Heating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) service market size in Canada is estimated at $12.9bn in 2022 according to IBISWorld, up 4.7% from the year before.

HVAC Supply Chain & Labour Challenges

The market size is great news if you provide HVAC installation and repair services to consumers and businesses, but as with all industry sectors, HVAC has also been hit with serious supply chain and labour issues:

  • Units are hard to come by and have to be ordered well ahead of time
  • Skilled tradespeople have been difficult to find, as many have retired, stayed home to help with the kids or stopped working altogether, and there are not enough young trades coming up to replace them

But even when you have the qualified staff and the HVAC units, getting them to your client in time can pose logistical problems for you and your technicians:

  • The units are big, bulky and heavy, and take up a lot of space in the service vehicles. This means unnecessary multiple trips to the warehouse to get the units, and that wastes time, money and effort. It’s impacting your bottom line.
  • Your technicians’ time is wasted driving around instead of installing and repairing units – again a negative impact on your sales and profit
  • The units are taking up space which could be used to store additional repair parts instead, allowing your service technicians to perform more repairs for more clients faster

 

The Solution: use High Energy Transport Inc. to drop ship the HVAC units directly to your customer’s location

HET has the experienced staff with the expertise to handle these bulky and cumbersome items, and our centrally-located warehouse can easily accommodate your inventory as it transits to your customers.

Let us handle getting the HVAC units to your clients for you, and we’re sure you’ll see an improvement in your efficiency, profit and overall customer satisfaction as you focus on doing what you do best: servicing your clients.

High Energy Transport specializes in heavyweight and bulky oversized shipments that others can’t easily deliver with our Final Mile Delivery services. We are perfectly suited to handle your non-conveyables and have done so reliably for many of our clients over the years.

 

Providing Exceptional Service to You and Your Customers

At High Energy Transport Inc., we treat and value every single customer as if they were our very first client.

We are here and willing to help you and your business in any way we can; please rest assured that your shipments are in good hands with us. Please contact us for a quote.

Simplifying Outdoor Furniture Delivery to Your Customers

Posted by High Energy Transport on 6 April 2022
Simplifying Outdoor Furniture Delivery to Your Customers

Spring is here and summer is just around the corner. For many Canadians this means spending as much time as possible outdoors in their backyards, on their decks and porches, or at the cottage.

With the pandemic restrictions of the past 2 years and people spending more time at home, consumers have been shifting their attention to improving their outdoor spaces to make them more comfortable and more aesthetically pleasing with outdoor furniture items such as:

  • Outdoor lounge furniture: sofas, chairs, sectionals, ottomans, stools
  • Outdoor dining furniture: tables & chairs, dining sets
  • Outdoor accessories: furniture covers, umbrellas, cushions, planters, rugs
  • Outdoor ambiance: fire pits, fire tables, outdoor heaters, outdoor lighting

As a result, the demand for outdoor furniture and accessories has skyrocketed. Market research firm Global Market Insights is projecting the overall outdoor furniture market to grow by approximately 6% compounded annually from 2021 to 2027.

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.

Growth & Customer Delivery Issues

This tremendous demand coupled with the supply chain issues we’ve all been dealing with – from material availability to transportation – means that there have been significant delays in getting customer orders fulfilled in a timely fashion.

And even once the items are available, delivering such large and bulky items to consumers represents a challenge for many furniture stores, retailers and wholesalers in the Greater Toronto Area, and indeed across all of Canada.

Even online retailers have struggled with delivery of outdoor furniture as these items tend to be much larger than regular consumer products and don’t fit neatly in most automated conveyor systems used in sorting facilities and warehouses across the globe.

How to deliver outdoor furniture quickly and efficiently to your customers?

As a retailer, a Third Party Logistics (3PL) organization or an OEM manufacturer that needs to ship directly to your clients, there are a few things you should consider to provide a great delivery experience to your customers in the most cost-efficient and timely manner possible.

How to handle non-conveyables

Start by separating your non-conveyables – those large and bulky items that don’t fit into standard-sized boxes that can be efficiently handled by automated conveyor systems – as a different workflow stream.

Let a trusted partner handle your non-conveyables

Trusted third party storage and warehousing partners can handle your non-conveyables for you, improving your efficiency and saving space. These bulky outdoor furniture items don’t need to hit your warehouse and tie up your staff’s time and efforts as they switch between conveyables and non-conveyables.

This is where High Energy Transport comes in: our staff has the expertise and the experience to handle these bulky and sometimes fragile items, and our centrally-located warehouse can easily accommodate your inventory as it transits to your customers.

Work with a reliable Final Mile partner

High Energy Transport specializes in heavyweight and bulky oversized shipments that others can’t easily deliver with our Final Mile Delivery services. For example, we have safely delivered approximately 50,000 large screen TVs over the past 5 years – claim free.

 

We are here to help you exceed your customers’ expectations

At High Energy Transport Inc., we treat and value every single customer as if they were our very first client, which is why we are rated so highly with not only with our customers but with our entire teams and partners as well.

We are here and willing to help you any way we can, please rest assured that your shipments are in good hands with us. Please contact us for a quote.
