CD Auction Group has partnered with automotive technology company Reemaq to launch a new vehicle logistics service for car dealers.
The new service enables users to manage all their transport moves and administration in a new smartphone app-driven platform which manages end to end transport moves using an audited network of plated drivers, transporters and inspect and collect services.
Users access a national network of suppliers who bid for each move based on the best time and cost in a manner reflective of that offered by Auto Trader's Vehicle Moves platform.
Andy Pearce, operations director of CD Auction Group, said: "As digital remarketing experts, we are always looking for new ways to use technology to make operations more efficient for our customers.
“The new Reemaq Moves service will drive down overall delivery costs and improve service."
The service covers all types of vehicle movement, from a single vehicle to transporters.
It claims to provide complete transparency of all moves in real-time, with a comprehensive view of the workflow, full reporting and a clear breakdown of costs.
Corby-based CD Auction Group claims to be one of the UK's first digital-only auction companies and is aiming to grow its range of digital channels to support the industry.
Pearce said: "Our new logistics service has the power to reduce costs significantly. Modelling suggests some customers will save hundreds of pounds for load movements and benefit from reduced administration thanks to automated and integrated systems combined with one point of contact."
Last month AM reported that CD Auction Group had axed listing and sellers fees on its dealer-to-dealer Vehicle Tradex platform in a bid to support car dealers keen to re-stock their forecourts during COVID-19 ‘Lockdown 3’.
