We are pleased to announce that we have teamed up with vehicle transport provider CarsArrive to expand transportation services options for recovery agents while also offering them more revenue opportunities. The partnership allows our Preferred Agent Network to scan available transport load assignments in real time through CarsArrive. Instant notifications are also available to users via fax, e-mail or by downloading them online. Additionally, it allows for recovery agents to bid on transport requests for vehicles in their market.
CarsArrive was brought into the KAR family through ADESA’s acquisition of OPENLANE last year. The carrier network of CarsArrive includes more than 4,500 companies and 30,000 trucks throughout North America. We are excited to provide our recovery agents with the opportunity to utilize the CarsArrive transportation network We are confident they will benefit greatly from this partnership — not only through noticeable increases in operational efficiency, but additional revenue opportunities as well.
CarsArrive president and chief executive officer Michael Briggs added: “CarsArrive Network is designed to make the transportation dispatch process as seamless as possible. By extending our network to PAR North America’s recovery agents, we are expanding our transportation footprint. “As a result, we can now provide our customers with the most robust and comprehensive transportation network in North America,” he continued.
Chip Rubano, who is the director of transportation operations for CarsArrive in the U.S. and Canada, chimed in, noting: “Our highly advanced technology ensures that updates to a load’s location and delivery are available in real time. We are pleased to provide PAR’s recovery agent network with greater control and flexibility over their transport assignments including timely payment upon proof of delivery.”
In closing, we are confident that recovery agents who take advantage of this unique opportunity will reap the benefits of additional revenue streams through this partnership. Additionally, clients should recognize shorter days to transport and improved cycle times. This is another example of the unique benefits we at PAR can provide as a member of the KAR Auction Services family of companies.
