  • 1. 2010 Dealer Survey: Online Wholesale Used Car Buying & Shipping
    March 8, 2010
  • 2. Why is Auto Transportation Important to Online Sales? Cars are everywhere!
    Wholesale used car trading is growing rapidly on the web…
    • Upstream, simulcast, 24x7 online
    • 3. Online Auctions are becoming global markets
    … oddly in many cases, shipping has been left to online buyers to sort out
    • Even with upstream sales…cars must transfer from seller to buyer
    • 4. Online buyers can not ignore transportation so they limit their buying zone
    Auto Transportation is the silent engine behind the explosion of e-commerce
    • People buy online because it’s easy and they get delivery direct to their home
    • 5. Convenience factor doesn’t yet exist in used car market
    Online trading fulfills its potential when both buying and shipping are made easy

    47.8% I shop regionally within 500 miles (30% in 2009)
    25.0% I shop nationwide (10% in 2009)

    17.4% Speed is all that matters. I’ll pay more for faster delivery.
    If Internet Auctions offered integrated shipping, would you buy more online?

  • 22. 2010 Dealer Survey - Summary
    • In other areas of e-commerce, location of the product is generally irrelevant to the online buyer … but when dealers buy used cars online, they often have to worry about shipping and where the cars are located.
    • 23. It doesn’t have to be that way. ShipCarsNow offers both expedited truck and lower cost rail shipping options.
    • 24. Dealers surveyed said they would buy more if buying and shipping are more integrated online.
    • 25. Dealers, just like other consumers, want shipping options
    • 26. Speedy delivery to protect a customer order
    • 27. Low cost delivery to fill inventory needs while protecting the bottom line
