How to Ship a Car?

Hi there!

We just wanted to share a quick guide on how to ship a car!

When you are deciding to ship your own car or a specific car you should, first of all, organize the following things:

  • Pickup Location – you need to know the specific address, state, postal code either as a company or consumer what is the starting location where that car is going to be picked-up – for the auto transport company
  • Delivery Location – you need to know the specific address, state, postal code for the final destination which is critical for the auto transport company
  • Year of the vehicle –  it’s the production year of the vehicle which is important for the driver of the auto transport company to determine the quote
  • Make of the vehicle – is it a Mercedes Benz, BMW or any other make? Again important for the driver of the car hauling company to determine the quote
  • Model of the vehicle – knowing the model will also be helpful to determine the quote for the auto transport company
  • Time of delivery – you need to have in mind an estimated time of delivery for your vehicle so the auto transport company knows how much time they need to take into consideration
  • Budget – how many $ are you willing to spend to take your car from pickup to delivery location

You will either contact auto transport brokers that will:

  • Find you car haulers for a specific amount of upfront fee before the car was delivered + additional fee after the load(car) was delivered)
  • Find you a car hauler for a specific fee after the load (car) is delivered

Search for auto transport broker on different websites like:

  • Google – type in auto transport brokers + specific state you’re in
  • Yahoo – type in auto transport brokers + specific state you’re in
  • Transport Reviews – search for shippers or auto transport brokers and read carefully the quality of the reviews

Either go right away to the car hauler company or auto transport company by searching again on channels like.

  • Google – search for auto transport company + specific state or specific state + car shippers
  • Yahoo search for auto transport company + specific state specific state + car shippers
  • Transport Reviews – be very picky about the quality of reviews by reading the levels of satisfaction of different customers or consumers
  • Check their insurance certificate and safety record information on USDOT
  • Check their facebook page or social media for more insights

And remember you always have an alternative to just put that information of your car here.

Auto Transport Dispatcher – Save Time and Money Guide

 

How to save time and money as an auto transport dispatcher? This specific post is related to a ton of auto transport dispatcher out there that want to improve their daily operations by focusing on these key indicators:

  • Time
  • Organization
  • The Process of Load Management
  • The Process of Trip Management
  • Documentation if necessary – BOL, Invoicing, Inspection Review, Contracts, reports

First of all the most important asset in the every single business out there is managing your time – and if you’re not owning time as a dispatcher, and time is owning you – then the truth is that work is going to overwhelming and stomp you on daily basis.

Mastering this core asset will help you focus on:

  • Actually staying connected with your customers and drivers
  • Spending more time to find quality of work you have for the company/companies you’re working for
  • Having more time will open up business opportunities that you’re ignoring because of your stomped scheduled

An auto transport dispatcher is going to work on daily basis with different loads big brokers out there, big load boards to find loads for the drivers.

They always need to get that dispatch sheet from 10+load boards in different formats and manage them all together – the amount of paperwork gathered is insane and not organized in the proper way. That’s where a load of time is wasted. Manually checking in the load boards, requesting the dispatch sheet via the email/load board, going back to save, going into your email to send it to the drivers,  checking with the driver if he received it, calling him 3+ times, then checking if he got the correct load number, pickup and delivery information.

Sending the BOL, and invoices is another one – an auto transport dispatcher can send typically other 20+ of those a week.

That’s actually near thousands of transport documents in a year – think about how much time you need to spend on to perfect and check that paperwork every single time.

What if someone told you can save all that time for your right away and you can actually focus on bring more loads to the drivers – as that is what you’re getting paid for?

Would you consider it as an auto transport dispatcher? I bet yes!

So if you want to change it, here’s a framework that you can use that we developed in our system CarShipIO for auto transport dispatchers:

  • Imagine yourself uploading all dispatch sheets in one single place from all the loadboards out there, and big brokers ( there are more than 20+ out there in the auto transport industry).
  • Dispatching it right away with just creating a organized trip for all your drivers, will loads, vehicles, miles, addresses, customer information, ability to edit the load, add more loads, delete the loads.
  • Everything is integrated with a driver app on the driver end, and he sees all that info without any information slippage. They have the ability to do everything they need, inspection, electronic bill of lading, change status of loads so the auto transport dispatcher and customer sees it, add vehicles to a load, automatically scan vin code, add expenses.

The real benefit is saving your time, your driver time, your company times, your customer time, and the receive time with everything being organized around the concept of  load, trip, driver.

We highly recommend to try it out as we believe time is going to be single biggest asset out there for you – read more info here

By our average calculations saving 5K $ by using the system on yearly basis is very welcome for your business.

Sign-UP here, use it and get that benefit.

Electrified Hydrogen Trucks for Owner Operators

 

In December 2016 the beginning of the fun times of the auto transport industry, the Startup Nikola unveiled its hydrogen-electric truck in a very inspirational way which gives more positive insights into the entire auto transport industry.

The shift of the auto transport industry is going disrupted massively with this new technology and infrastructure implemented, so please don’t miss the opportunity to learn more here.

First and foremost, this a detailed blog post with some sneak peaks into some trucks.

So let’s start off by mentioning that 2 auto transport products are going to be released specifically one off road UTV truck which has been named Nikola Zero and the Electrified-Hydrogen Truck Nikola One, Nikola Two.

Battery

The battery pack has an amazing density energy with their innovation and technology which 2 packages from 72kW (200miles) and 107kW(300miles) and guess what? The vehicle is completely silent.

Agreement Ryder Systems Inc

Ryder Systems Inc are going to be servicing, warranting, selling and helping Nikola in 800 locations all across US, Canada and Mexico. Thanks to that agreement they already have pre-ordered approximately 4 billion $.

Fill-in of the trucks

The answer for fill-in of the trucks is building the infrastructure by Nikola, so their solution is integration & control of  production, transport, distribution, storage, selling, prices.

On site conversion through hydrolysis from solar energy, with on site storage. The next step will be transporting the hydrogen from the onsite to the station.

The initial plan is to build 364 hydrogen stations with constructions beginning in 2018, stations being already opened 2019.

How are they going to build the trucks?

They have an investor – Fitzgerald, actually, an immediate assembly line – not a massive facility but they tested the building of the truck now.

And then after trying to build the entire 5000 trucks from Fitzgerald, Nikola has  an investment plan of building an manufacturing plant (still there is no info where is the location – going to be announced at the end 0f 2017)

Nikola Two – the electrified hydrogen truck they are building has 100% zero emissions and a 1200 mile range with hydrogen powered.

Software & Loadboard – Nikola Shipments

It’s going to be a solution for freight broker to basically upload all the freight in that platform so they do business with carriers all across US.

The best part about the software from the driver perspective is everyone gets access to it for FREE in the truck.

So the interior of the truck is so amazing that it has a massive 21 inches screen so the drivers have the ability to pick any load he has on the load board of Nikola Shipments and doesn’t need to worry about the dispatching.

The system is integrated with all the service centers, hydrogen stations, and available shipments right away from the dashboard screen from the truck and the CEO mentioned that this will allow owner-operators to increase their income by even 50%.

So that’s a quick overview of what we’ve learned about the new auto transport products that owner-operators are dreaming about.

Every owner-operator should watch the previews on youtube right now.

The Auto Transport industry is still just starting up with technology – technology is still young in this world, so owner-operators, drivers, dispatchers, brokers never ever give up!

Until next time.

Happy Hauling,

ELD – News

Car haulers, this subject already sounds pretty familiar to every motor car carrier that’s thinking long term in the industry.

Here are some insights you need to know directly from FMCSA about the ELD rule:

ELD is used by commercial drivers with the requirement to prepare:

  1. HOS  – Hours of service
  2. RODS – Records of duty status

ELD will need to also be certified and registered with FMCSA, along with having supporting documents for drivers/car carriers required to keep in the truck.

So, beginning on December 18, 2017, a driver using an ELD must have an ELD information packet onboard the commercial motor vehicle (CMV).

Speaking about it, an ELD can be on a smartphone or other wireless device if the device meets the ELD rule’s technical specifications.

Data Storage:

For six months, a motor carrier must keep both the ELD Records of

  • hours services data
  • a back-up copy of that data on a separate device

The car carrier must ensure that these records are stored securely to protect driver privacy.

An ELD automatically records the following data elements at certain intervals:

  • date
  • time
  • location information
  • engine hours
  • vehicle miles
  • identification information for the driver
  • authenticated user
  • vehicle
  • motor carrier

Location data must be recorded by an ELD at 60-minute intervals when the vehicle is in motion, driver powers up and shuts down the engine, change duty status, and indicates personal use or yard moves.

Also, keep in mind that an ELD must automatically switch to driving mode once the commercial motor vehicle (CMV) is moving up to a set speed threshold of five miles per hour. As a result, the in-motion state must not be configured greater than five miles per hour. The vehicle will be considered stopped once its speed falls to zero miles per hour and stays at zero miles per hour for three consecutive seconds.

Guess what else?

The ELD must convert automatically captured vehicle position in latitude/longitude coordinates into geo-location information that indicates the approximate distance and direction to an identifiable location corresponding to the name of a nearby city, town, or village, with a State abbreviation.

Engine synchronization CMV – ELD

An ELD must be integrally synchronized with the engine of the commercial motor vehicle (CMV). Engine synchronization means monitoring engine operation to automatically capture the engine power status, vehicle motion status, miles driven, and engine hour

Vehicle performance? Not really.

Yes, the ELD rule allows but does not require, warning or notification to drivers when they are nearing their HOS limits.

Data export from ELD

Since all ELD data file output will be a standard comma-delimited file, a driver may import the data output file into Microsoft Excel, Word notepad, or other common tools. A driver will also be able to access ELD records through a screen display or a printout, depending on the ELD design.

Bluetooth Feature

If the driver is using a “local” ELD with Bluetooth capabilities, the authorized safety official will activate Bluetooth on his or her computing device and the driver will initiate the Bluetooth electronic transfer of the data from the driver’s ELD to the safety official’s computing device.

The official will provide a Bluetooth pairing code for the driver to enter into the ELD for the data file transfer.

Here’s a cool list you can review – ELD’s Compliant List

The plug-in device to your truck’s ECM communicates the relevant data to software on your smartphone — the software enables the log to work, likewise electronic pre-trip/post trip inspection reports.

The ECM plug-in communicates with your smartphone, as with many others, over Bluetooth, and guiding smartphone apps are currently available on both iOS and Android platforms. Administration of the data is done through a web-based software program users create a unique account.

Most ELDs pair an engine-connected relay with another device, often an operator’s smartphone or tablet, hence the common BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) designation.

For such devices, some contain a cellular connection within the engine-connected relay, some don’t.

For those that don’t, generally, extra costs incurred for data-plan charges on a smartphone are not reflected here.

Just a quick overview for car haulers:

We’re covering just new industry information so that every single car hauler out there can read it and get a general idea – for full in depth explanation of specific cases feel free to visit FMCSA for sure.

Ford 2018 Expedition News

Just wanted to share with car haulers that CarShipIO team is passionate about the auto transport community as much as new beautiful cars releases.

So just a quick overview we have some news for car haulers and vehicle enthusiasts about the Ford Expedition 2018.

If you’re a car hauler this is going to be a very fun ride to transport.

Driving a Ford Expedition is a like pick-truck experience in itself.

See the MAX edition on Ford, that’s clearly like a luxury pickup truck.

“he new 2018 Expedition MAX is for people who want to go bigger and have more to carry on their way. That’s why we’ve added extra room in all the right places. At nearly a foot longer than the Expedition, the Expedition MAX can accommodate an additional 16.9 cubic. ft. of cargo for your next adventure. There’s, even more, head room in the last row. So everyone can feel like they’re living large.”

Let’s give Ford great credit for specifically building  an extremely refined car with:

  • Ton of towing capacity
  • Ton of space
  • Ton of fancy technology and smart innovation
  • More power
  • More fuel efficiency

Here’s how this is going to look at the auction/dealership/ or your next pick-up location:

 

The pricing on truecar.com starts with a market average of $ 57k which is nice for 2017 one.

The 2018 Ford Expedition will house a 3.5-liter V6 engine, a 10-speed transmission, 300 pounds lighter and it will in the $ 60k from other auto transport news sources we researched.

The Expedition’s Limited, XL, and XLT variants will have 375 horsepower at 5,000 rpm, whereas the 2017 models got 365 horsepower.

Ford also revealed that it would offer an off-road package for the XLT trim of the 2018 Expedition after customers consistently demanded the same.

The off-road variant will get the same 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque as the standard XLT trim of the 2018 Ford Expedition.

Obviously part of the big story is the interior as well, it’s all brand new luxurious with a unique set of beautiful knobs, medium sized screen and actually, a tech look interior with a ton of buttons to play around.

If you have the chance to car haul this 2018 Expedition check it out.

Make sure to enjoy before loading the car to enjoy this beautiful Ford interior.

That’s it with some quick news on this new monster!

Let us know when you’ll haul this new vehicle after the fall when they actually start selling and getting shipped 🙂

Technology for car hauling? It’s just happening

From the White House published the report -between 2.2 and 3.1 million car, bus, and truck driving jobs in the US will be eliminated by the advent of self-driving vehicles.

Stephen Hawking says that that rise of artificial intelligence is likely to extend job destruction deep into the middle classes, with only the most caring, creative, or supervisory roles remaining.

At the same time, Guruduth Banavar VP and Chief Science Office at IBM mentioned:

“If you were in the same room with me and I had a whiteboard, I’d draw a graph,” he explains. “If you think of the distribution of expertise as a bell curve. If the high-end of expertise is on the right side and the low-end is on the left, there’s a whole lot of medium-level expertise in the middle. That’s going to shift to the right. What we consider today to be high-level expertise jobs will be taken by people who use machines in the future to fulfill some of the expertise needed.”

Actually, technological advances over the next two to three decades and will ease up the life of owner-operators.

As technology increasingly automates basic driver duties, the transportation industry will see:

  • Increase the efficiency of  car hauling operations
  • Reduce the accident rate of car hauling and transportation in general
  • Less stressful and tiring for drivers, dispatchers and transport managers

David Heller, head of regulatory affairs for the TruckLoad Carriers Association accentuates the fact that with automation he still doesn’t see the replacement of the person behind the steering wheel, and truckers will become a lot more efficient.

We already the efficiency in driving a regular vehicle with

  • Basic Assistance Technology
  • Automated Transmissions
  • Cruise Control with predictability
  • Sensors & Cameras to integrate automated braking

Automation increases and the transition to self-driving trucks will happen, but owner-operators will stay remain a businessman, a technician, a skilled driver, a salesperson that will manage the operational stuff.

The real truth is innovation is here, it’s just happening without asking your permission.

That’s why we do actually do technology as this is how everything is going to work in future.

Car hauling is not going to disappear, it’s only to get more automated and efficient with top notch technologies.

So get on onboard, adapt to it and start opening yourself to learning all the stuff you need to not be one of those 2,2  – 3,1 million.

As always, be great!

ELD – Basics of Electronic Logging Device

In the auto transport industry, there’s been a lot of development and research in the transport industry about ELD.

ELD stands for Electronic Logging Device.

Take a look at more history insights about the ELD last years:

This means serious preparation as independent owner-operators is likely to gravitate to a baseline compliance device. They can benefit from additional functions such as IFTA data collection, making mileage tracking automatic and easily reportable.

The exceptions to ELD requirements will be the following:

  • Old model trucks (from 1999)
  • Drivers in drive-away businesses
  • Drivers operating under the timecard exception rule – short-haul 100 – 150 miles specifically.
  • Drivers who keep logbook but work less than 8 days in 30 days

The core basics of the display of an ELD are:

  • Driver First Name and Last Name
  • ELD Username
  • ELD Malfunction Status
  • Total Engine Hours
  • Miles for each driving period
  • Data Diagnostic Status for the authenticated driver

The specific data recorded is:

  • Date & Time
  • Location
  • Engine Hours & Vehicle Mileage
  • Speed & Distance
  • Driver Login
  • Vehicle Identification & Authorized Carrier Identification

All events are recorded:

  • At start & finish
  • When changing the duty status
  • Once per hour why vehicle is operating
  • At the start & end of personal use or yard time

On FMCSA if you search for more information you’ll clearly see this the Phase 3 – full compliance phase with the punch line that after December 16, 2019, all drivers and carriers subject to the rule must use certified, registered ELDs that comply with requirements of the ELD regulations. So after that FMCSA advice is to take advantage of their specific training like classrooms, webinars.

So far for general info of ELD – that’s it. We are always keeping an eye behind the curtains to see where the industry goes so we are going to keep everyone updated with our research.

 

As always happy car hauling and until next time.

Car Hauler Guide to make & save money

 

 

So you want to learn how to make & save more money as a car hauler?

Imagine what would be like making additional $ on top – from 7 strategies we have discovered that works for the majority of auto transport professionals.

Here there are the strategies on how to make & save more money as a car hauler:

  • Organization
  • Less Paperwork
  • Efficient Invoicing
  • Follow-up and Updates
  • Analytics
  • Trip Planning
  • Minimize False Claim Damages

Let me guess you want to get to that X amount net profit monthly?

Use & Practice Organization   

Top 1 is to have a functional system or create a system based on best practices that will give the opportunity to manage easily your top 4 business growing factors or revenue streams.

In the car hauler business the top 4 things that will bring you revenue are:

  • Drivers  –   having great relationships with these people will represent a critical factor for your business to grow, also assign loads and dispatch it in the easiest ways possible for them, with detailed notifications and support on the trip
  • Trucks  –  the core equipment that is key to the economy of every car haulage company needs to manage the maintenance, oil, suspension, service records, the inspection, insurance
  • Trailers –  hauling 10 cars  with different weights and dimensions, VIN codes, models needs technical organization and also professional loading and unloading
  • Load –  if you own this part right here you will skyrocket the revenue you currently make on your loads you deliver, you can check out List of Top Load Boards for Car Haulers in our recent blog post

Minimize Paperwork

How can you make more money by minimizing paperwork?

The principle is extremely easy to grasp in every type of business “Time is Money’’.

If you manage to save only 1 hour a day by eliminated the huge amount of paperwork you do every day, you will literally save more than 300 hours per year, that’s 12 business days.

Sounds good to save 2+ weeks per year to produce some more money in that time and not do much of your boring paperwork! Extra 2 week Paid Vacation? Heck Yea!!!

Invoicing

In your car carrier business, timing will realize a lot of value. When you send that invoice as soon the load is delivered, you will have a greater chance of having all the necessary information about getting paid, as you have all the information you need right there and will not have to go back and look for that invoice in your paper files, or under the seat, glove box, your pet’s bedding, wherever else? Also making your terms and conditions as clear as possible to the customers is of much help, but at the same time include all of the pertinent details in the document necessary to that customer. Being able to invoice as you delivery can help you get paid 12 days faster on average, so maybe you can skip dropping 3-5% on that money factoring company just by implementing the right strategy using the best tools. Think what you can do with Free 5% a year BONUS? Many 1 trucks, 3 car haulers start saving $3000+ a year, just by solving this issue.

Follow-up and status update

One of the weak links in car haulage is following-up! Why? Because they don’t know what to say.

A lot of confusing questions appear such as ‘’ when I need to call?’’, ‘’ what to ask?’’, ‘’who do I need to call?’ Organize your call list, have a basic script for calls, commit to your follow-ups and be extremely timely and persistent with them. Updating and following up as soon as possible is one of the top practical advice to get the fastest results possible and set your company apart from a sea of “rookies” who lose repeat business by not following up.

If you don’t want to follow-up with customers you won’t stay connected and you will loose business.

Knowing your numbers – analytics 

To make more money, you need to have a clear financial target. You always need to know where is your company in terms of expenses, revenue, net profit, revenue per mile, revenue per vehicle mile and other metrics to get you to the point you want to be. Also by knowing your numbers, you are identifying your top weak points and problems and your strongest links, that way you will consider which problems you need to solve in your day-to-day operation.

Reverse engineer on how many vehicles you need to ship on weekly basis to get to that monthly net profit.

Trip Planning

Optimal route planning sometimes is neglected because of the variety of delivery destinations and time it takes, due to complexities and delivery windows.

Every car hauler needs a map system allowing them to view an address and locate that destination and route more easily, even with multiple intermediary stops.

Tools like navigation, map dragging, zooming, detailed and always up-to-date is fundamental to such a system. A good combination of the truck capacity planning and route optimization will reduce fuel and toll charges. Planning your Trips ahead considering best routes, stops, bridges, time windows, vehicle characteristics and more can literally mean if you will make it break it on the trip, or be able to make it home to your loved ones that Friday afternoon after being done with all your car deliveries on time.

Minimize false damage claims

The main thing to do is to take pictures of every dent or scratch on the body, interior, wheels and glass before you load the car on your trailer.

That way you will truly minimize the false damage claims, by presenting that you have inspected the car with the pictures from all angles.

Another way is selecting your customers, shippers, dealers based on professionalism and rating in their service and the relationships they have previously formed.

Focus on these things as your car shipping company grows and let us know how they changed your results.

Hoped it helped and thank you very much for reading CarShipIO blog.

Until next time!

How Tesla Semi-Truck can WIN or FAIL?

 

I am going to start with this:

I hope you’re pumped as well.

Elon Musk is planning already how and when the semi-truck is coming to the transport industry.

As we know Elon Musk core purpose in this marketplace is sustainable energy and transportation.

Also, we know that after the Model 3 sedan, Tesla Inc. will show an electric semi-truck and a pickup vehicle within 18 months and 24 months.

Doing that can disrupt the car hauling industry, towing companies, freight companies, logistics companies, broker companies, truck repair and maintenance services and a lot more.

A new market along with a new technology may appear and has the possibility to change business processes for the vast majority of parties from the transport industry.

Here is what CarShipIO found on how Tesla semi-truck can FAIL 🙂

Challenges

  1. What’s the biggest challenge? Range.

In the auto transport industry, drivers typically cover 200 to 400 miles a day or even more, something hard to do with batteries alone.

Milton CEO at Trevor Milton figures that “Musk’s truck will get around 200 to 300 miles range.”

In the long-hauling game, the solution will be recharging.

But you’re probably thinking  “Is this real? How much should we wait to recharge our truck? Probably longer than a Model S sedan (which is 30 minutes to get it to 80%).

No worries you will probably be helped here by the Federal Rules or use of battery technology swamping.

2. What’s the 2nd challenge? The weight of the battery.

All the parts of the diesel drive train will be removed, but the mass of the batteries will get bigger with the increased range of driving.

At the end of the day, we don’t know the technology Tesla is going to use for the semi-truck battery.

Overall the trend is that battery technology today will completely different in the years to come as the energy density is increasing at a faster rate. Note that Tesla is looking for alternatives on this point.

3. Another challenge is the highway infrastructure, specifically a network to charge the electric trucks.

A huge amount of investments will be needed to develop the needed infrastructure for this new technology.

4. The price of the semi-truck is also a huge factor for owner-operators, small and medium trucking businesses, and even larger transportation businesses.

The higher the price, the less it will be accessible for other businesses that don’t have cash to invest and guess what?

Investing the money in the Tesla semi-trucks will help trucking companies with getting rid of fuel expenses and maybe other operating costs.

In terms of what we CarShipIO found on how Tesla semi-truck can WIN is simple.

The team behind Tesla, along with the vision of Elon Musk, can really make it happen.

We all know that all of them are clearly aware of the core problems they may face in short and long term to disrupt the space.

I also wanted to share with you some other  predictions we found  from other auto transport and vehicle professionals for the Tesla semi-truck:

  • Tesla aesthetics and aerodynamics
  • Compatibility with all types of trailer from the auto transport industry
  • Chassis with batteries under the cab of the truck
  • Rear Electric Motors
  • Additional underslung batteries on trailer
  • Autonomy or semi-autonomy, ideal for highway long hauling
  • Wealth of data and experience from semi-autonomy to improve road safety
  • Reduce auto transport operating costs

 

If you want to hear more news from us in terms of the new Tesla truck just go here Contact me with “Tesla fan’’.

P.S if you know more news from Tesla or Elon Musk just let us know.

As always, happy car hauling and until next time!
