ATLANTA — Manheim announced a new integration designed to make it easier for dealers to schedule transportation for vehicles they buy at wholesale. Manheim’s buyers now have seamless access to Central Dispatch’s digital shipping platform to directly list vehicles on Central Dispatch.
The new integration enables dealers to directly post to Central Dispatch after inventory has been purchased. The integration is part of the broader strategy by Manheim to help dealers take full advantage of new digital technologies to more efficiently run their businesses, all according to the announcement.
“The Manheim integration with Central Dispatch creates a powerful solution that helps dealers more simply and easily handle vehicle transportation,” said Jim Williams, senior vice president of logistics for Manheim. “Whether shipping a vehicle across town or across the country, dealers need a logistics company they trust. With Central Dispatch, Manheim clients can instantly tap into a vast network of carriers to meet their needs.”
Central Dispatch is billed as the largest transportation platform in the industry, averaging more than 500,000 posts monthly. Half of all Central Dispatch subscribers already buy with Manheim, providing an immediate benefit to these clients, executives noted.
