Used car sales have taken on newfound importance in 2020. Even with many states, cities and local municipalities allowing businesses to re-open if they follow COVID-19-based precautions, and with both in-person and virtual car sales continuing to rise, the supply chain is still disrupted and new inventory arrivals still lagging. Dealers working to meet their customers’ demands are often faced with the reality that there just aren’t enough new cars to go around – and, therefore, not enough to sell. Cox Automotive’s Chief Economist Jonathan Smoke even estimates that new vehicle sales will be down as much as 25% by end of year. Cue the increased demand for used vehicles.
With car dealerships around the country working diligently to keep their lots as full as possible, as well as find inventory whenever and wherever they can – whether that be an auto auction, a remarketer or somewhere else – many have been primarily acquiring and selling used inventory. Essentially, the name of the game for automotive dealers right now is to deliver the best inventory they can for their customers, with as much efficiency and business value as possible.
To achieve this objective, many dealers are turning to vehicle transport-and-logistics providers like ACERTUS to not only haul their vehicles, but to provide them with market condition insights into which areas of the country have inventory opportunities that deliver speed to market. ACERTUS’ infrastructure, technology and carriers ensure that it’s well-positioned to create a seamless market insight-and-transport process for dealers and establish ACERTUS as an ideal, integrated partner.
An Information-Based, Thoroughly Integrated Solution
With on-time, damage-free vehicle deliveries, ACERTUS’ car haul services are inherently fast, secure and professional. Customers are given the option to choose between open-trailer and competitively priced standard vehicle shipping, an expedited shipping process or enclosed critical transports that guarantee the ultimate care and protection for vehicles.
But in today’s hectic auto-industry climate, dealers want more than just excellent car transports. They demand information, technological advantages and a true partnership. Fortunately, ACERTUS has a data-focused approach – as well as sophisticated technology – that allows its teams to seamlessly integrate with specific dealership logistics and business operations. With API-integration capability, ACERTUS’ proprietary technology can easily connect with a dealer’s operating system, instantly sending and receiving crucial information on that dealer’s inventory needs and the best used-vehicle inventory opportunities currently available.
Essentially, with ACERTUS set up to be a truly integrated partner, not only are tasks and unnecessary time delays removed from the dealer’s plate, but that dealer also learns more about market conditions across the country and has a wider view into inventory opportunities for faster speed to market. As a result, dealers can make smarter and more efficient decisions more regularly, as well as achieve more peace of mind when it comes to their next business move.
Driving Efficiencies and Value through Bundling-Enabled Services
Realizing the size of dealers’ vehicle shipping needs often fluctuate as business changes, additional purchases or changing consumer demands occur, ACERTUS is fully committed to servicing any haul, no matter the number of vehicles being moved. Its expert teams can even move extremely large loads, and there are options for dealers to make these car shipping requests in bulk whenever necessary.
ACERTUS also goes a few steps beyond this, too, with its advanced, technology-enabled bundling opportunities. For customers who want to achieve the highest levels of efficiency and overall value, bundling can be an extremely savvy move. Through ACERTUS’ smart and easy-to-integrate technology, dealers can not only easily assess the inventory opportunities available to them, but its representatives can also show them where bundling opportunities best make sense. Oftentimes, this results in significant time and cost savings for any dealers who choose to take advantage of such offerings. Beyond that, with a vast customer network, ACERTUS is even able to build loads efficiently with other customers’ freight, helping customers achieve even faster turnaround times and a competitive edge with pricing.
Plus, the simple and straightforward online platform also provides real-time visibility, nightly updates and regular reporting to customers who use it, which means all the most crucial data is right at their fingertips, all the time.
