Is central dispatch bad or good for auto transport?
So many of you ask for my thoughts on Central Dispatch and whether I believe it does more harm than good to the auto transport industry. Rightfully so.
But before I share my thoughts on the platform, let me share what Central Dispatch is/does for those of you who don’t know.
So what is Central Dispatch?
Central Dispatch is currently the #1 auto transport load board.
It connects auto transport brokers, car haulers and automobile dealers together in one online space. Sounds great right?
In short, if you have a car hauling business, you can use central dispatch to find auto transport loads. Likewise, as an auto transport broker or car dealer, you can use Central Dispatch to find car haulers who will move your / your client’s vehicles.
But how could something so good be so bad?
Well on this episode of ReloGeek TV, I am sharing just that. I will share my personal thoughts on the platform and how you as a car hauler or auto transport broker should/should not be using Central Dispatch in your business.
Hint: It all boils down to your business strategy and how you plan to use the platform for your auto transport business.
Good stuff. I figured I would use the site as a launch pad to get my little black book started so I can have some go-to haulers and anticipate this will take a little time and hit-or-miss. Part of my strategy is to try to tap into some venues where I can network out to find reputable haulers and shippers. I live in a military town so I’m looking for ways to tap into the constant moving of military folks who move cross country whether that be through realtors or trying to contract with the base’s transportation department. Still researching this. Thanks again
Yes that is awesome John… You should use it and still build your carrier base outside it so you have some go to guys. Military town is AN amazing opportunity. It made the list of NICHES and TARGET MARKET IDEAS PDF inside ReloAcademy‘s Business and First Class Packages. I targeted that audience and saw great opportunity there. But it’s all about knowing the mindset of that military personnel and find ways to make the process easier for them. I’ve recently helped a broker come up with ideas to tap into this market and they are doing very well. So you are on the right track!
I like that ! Thats whats up great info !
