Toronto Shipping Company Adapts to a New Way of Working and Increased Demand


Apr 21, 2021 (AB Digital via COMTEX) -- A Toronto storage, shipping and packaging company is offering a contactless pick up service to keep their customers feeling safe and secure ordering with them.

Customers of Toronto Trailers can order online, the company will prepare the order and then the order can be collected from the parking lot.

A spokesman from the company said: “In COVID times it is important that we ensure our customers feel safe and secure ordering from us and our staff do not feel at risk with unnecessary contact with people. This is why we decided to launch the contactless pick up option.

“The customer can order and pay online. We will prepare their order and then they can collect it from outside our offices in Woodbridge, without having to be in contact with anyone.

“We have all had to adapt in some way or another during this pandemic and we are really pleased to be able to do this for everyone we work with and alongside,” he added.

Toronto Trailers said that business was good despite the pandemic, because more people were shopping online and fuelling the transport and logistics industry.

“Statistics have shown that the e-commerce business has grown by more than €170 billion since last year. People have not been able to go into stores or companies to buy as they have been closed or they prefer to use the contactless options due to COVID and to stay safe.

“As a result, a lot of the products and services that we supply have been in demand. More and more businesses need to access trailers, shipping and packaging accessories or storage facilities, so they need our services,” he added.

Toronto Trailers offers packaging supplies, winch and ratchet straps, storage units, flatbed trailers, flatbed accessories and truck and trailer parts to its customers, so the shipping and logistics industry can keep moving to respond to the demand.

“We know many businesses have suffered during this time, but the pandemic has put ecommerce to the forefront of retail and as a result, our services have been in demand. We are very grateful that we can help to support the growth of this industry and ensure jobs for our team of amazing staff when so many have lost their jobs,” he added.

The company is based in Woodbridge in Toronto and is open from 8am to
