How Auto Transporters Schedule Their Pickups And Deliveries

Carrier 5Owning and operating an auto transport carrier is a costly and daunting enterprise, but there’s demand for the service and as such there are always going to be people ready to step in and do the job. Auto transporters live on the road; like many long-haul commercial drivers, they go from pickup to delivery, moving goods across this vast country of ours. Unlike some drivers, like those that haul freight for major companies like Walmart or Whole Foods, auto transporters work for you, the customer, and they have to make sure that they schedule their pickups and their deliveries in such a way as to keep them going forward, to the next stop, while at the same time making sure they have enough money to keep their trucks fueled and properly maintained. It’s because of this that many auto shipping companies schedule their shipments the way they do, and also why some things in the industry are the way they are.

Carriers look at their next week or two when scheduling new pickups and deliveries, which is a big reason why you’ll want to make sure you book your order at least a week ahead of time. Many times, auto transportation drivers will have a spot or two open on their truck; they don’t want to have too much empty space, also known as “deadhead,” because that’s money they could be making. But they generally leave a spot open if they can, mainly for rush jobs that they can make a quick buck on. Most auto transporters stick to specific routes; that is, they’ll service the same general areas, sticking to the same interstate highways and the same cities because they know the routes, the ins and outs of the areas they service, and they know they can make money on those routes. It’s a decent business model, but some customers benefit more from it than others.

For starters, if you need auto transportation services along a route that is not popular or traveled heavily by auto shippers, you’ll likely find that your pickup windows will be a bit longer and the price may be more expensive. This is due to the fact that few carriers service those areas, because they’re not as popular or cost-effective as other, more prominent routes. For the right price a carrier will go just about anywhere, though, so keep that in mind (this is also the reason why some routes will have faster price swings than others). Scheduling is often done by dealing with your representative; the carrier will call your representative looking for loads on their route (though it’s more common that the representative calls the carrier), and then book the order and make sure to schedule it properly. They have to fit it in with 6-9 other customers’ vehicles, though, and that’s another reason why it takes time to get a vehicle shipped.
