WHEEL O’ TOPICS – GIVE THE WHEEL A SPIN


Tuesday Night’s Live on ATI

Aired July 21st, 2020

⭐ FEATURED JULY 2020 WHEEL O’ TOPICS:

1) TECHNOLOGY ACCELERATION
With so many new car hauling software solutions and auto shipping technologies being developed in today’s marketplace, it can be hard to keep up with all of the changes in car shipping technology.

2) FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE
Whether you’re a Carrier, Dispatcher, Broker, or Shipper, you know how hectic car shipping logistics can get. That’s why it’s important to get all of the information you can, make the phone calls needed to clarify the situation, and communicate with your team about transport details and business strategy.

3) FACEBOOK SMACKDOWN
It’s no secret that Facebook has been catching a lot of heat and lack of corporate advertising lately, but I’ve always wondered why people with questions about car shipping logistics catch so much criticism when asking basic questions in user groups online.

4) FLIP FLOP CREW
Some people had no idea what was going on during the interview, and others were uncomfortable as to what to say. I suppose we shall leave it at that.

5) WHO’S THAT BROKER?
It’s no secret that auto transport brokers vet car carriers before dispatching loads to them for transport, so why don’t carriers and dispatchers scrutinize brokers to the same degree? If carriers did, would they make different choices? Do you know who you’re hauling for?

6) WHAT ARE THEY THINKING?
The rates you see posted, the inaccuracy of information given, the expectations of some shippers, and the methods of some drivers, you just have to ask yourself, “What are they thinking?!”

7) BEST NEWS I’VE HEARD
For me, to hear that auto transport industry capacity is up, which means auto transport rates are up, tells me that some auto shippers are again discovering the value of a good car shipping company.

8) ARE WE CLEAN?
With so much in the news about resurgence of the virus (face masks and shutdowns), how are nationwide transporters staying clean and compliant when the rules and statistics continue to change. Also, how clean are the cars being delivered, and who’s making sure everyone is safe?

9) WHAT WOULD YOU FIX?
If you could wave a magic wand, what would be the first thing you would change about the car shipping business?

10) ISN’T THAT FAKE NEWS?
How can you believe what you see and hear in the news today? Is disinformation real?
