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.

Getting Your Non-Conveyables Out the Door

Posted by High Energy Transport on 2 March 2022
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.

 

Delivering large, oversized and bulky items for retailers and 3PL companies

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

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.

What is Warehousing and why do I need it for my Business?

Posted on 8 September 2021
What is Warehousing and why do I need it for my Business?

Simply put, warehousing is the process of storing items in a certain location during the shipping or fulfilment portion of a business transaction as they transit from one point to another in the supply chain to get to the end customer.

You can temporarily store items in your business’ stockroom or your shipping dock, but to get the maximum use out of your space and to help you control inventory and shipping costs, it’s best to store your physical goods in a safe and secure warehouse.

 

Why use an external warehouse to store my products?

The explosion of e-commerce over the past 2 years has put a lot of pressure on storage space and delivery times. Tech savvy customers constantly order products online and expect fast delivery times. Having warehousing facilities in a centrally-located area of the city enables you to provide faster shipping options and keeps the customer happy and coming back to you.

Also, having 3rd party external warehouse space speeds up your delivery to your clients and helps control your inventory costs by eliminating the extra steps of receiving all the products in-house, unpacking, picking, re-packing and finally shipping it all back out. It also helps minimize mistakes with all these manual processes, since warehousing staff are experts at what they do; and they do it every single day, day in and day out.

 

You may need warehousing facilities for:

  • Inventory storage: free up space and your employees’ time by storing your products at an off-site facility
  • Cross-province or cross-border shipping: separate and rearrange your orders on a regional basis, and send the right inventory to the right destination from the get-go
  • Optimizing your capacity: combine multiple shipments and multiple orders into one container for a more cost-effective delivery
  • Centralizing your shipments: use a centrally-located effective distribution centre as the warehousing hub for your business
  • Improving your delivery times: get your shipments out to your customers faster with a centrally-located warehouse close to your clients locations

 

Why use High Energy Transport for your storage and warehousing needs?

Whether you are looking for short term or long term storage and warehousing, we are certain we can meet your needs. High Energy Transport’s staff become an extension of your team and can work with you, your busy schedule and your demanding customers.

Our warehouse is centrally located in the Greater Toronto area close to the major Highways – 400, 407, 427, 401, 410, 403 – and Toronto Pearson International Airport:

  • Over 120,000 square feet of space
  • Over 2000 regular sized skids
  • Can handle oversized skids
  • Temperature controlled
  • Open 24 hours a day, 7 days per week

 

Looking for someone to destuff your containers, sort them, skid them and send them back out?

We have you covered.  Our cross docking/transloading areas are ready to meet your service needs.

 

Contact us today to learn how we can help your business manage its inventory costs with effective storage and warehousing.

Word from Our Customers

These guys are great for office moves. Jeremy is honest and operates with integrity, which is unfortunately rare in the moving industry. They'll do the entire office move, even electrical and plumbing, to make the whole process smooth. There's enough going on during an office move, it's nice not to have to worry about this part.
