Know How your Car Shipment Routed
The vehicle shippers of America, A-1 Auto Transport, has developed several locations –specific routing options to help our customers move automobiles across the nation in the most cost effective and timely manner. To handle the auto transport of privately owned vehicles, routing is defined by decisions, objectives, and constraints. Considering the trucks and equipment used for moving cars, our state of the art car carrier fleet is equipped to load 10 vehicles per truck. This equates to nearly 10 different pickups and drop off locations for the car hauler to service. Our dispatch team makes logistical decisions to assign a group of auto shipping customers, to groups of professional car carrier drivers, and then sequence and schedule their deliveries in a logistical fashion. The car transporters objective of vehicle routing is to provide a high level of customer service while keeping the car hauling fleet of trucks operating on scheduled routes.
