Ok so after cinching the noose up really tight on the brokers, Central dispatch has loosened it up a bit. Does that feel better guys?
We got 712 hits yesterday with the third highest search term being “Central Dispatch Alternatives” Now IF there was a viable alternative, they would be losing business right now. Since they seem to have that market cornered, I suspect their revenue stream will increase dramatically.
Now we know where the 7 million dollars is going to come from.
Manheim announced their acquisition of Ready Auto Transport. The synergy I see is in being able to steer more work to RAT. I wonder how feasible that is. If I was a booth renting transporter at a Manheim auction and they tried to lure any of my customers away from me, I’d be upset. I’m pretty sure that would be the last booth rent they would get from me. I imagine they will make more money brokering that stuff out than they were getting off of those booths anyway.
Pretty tough to beat these guys when they do everything 2 wide!
12/25/12 We have uploaded some improvements to correct some of the problems created by the new search. Most importantly, putting two search words in a single search box will now return only hits with both of those words not any of them. We have also added the ability to search state abbreviations even though they are only 2 characters. Call me at 405 382 2866 or email email@example.com if you need help or have any specific problems.
We are changing the way EZDispatch handles searches so we can speed up the sever. Instead of matching anything you type in the search box, it will look at just whole words with more than three letters in the new system. You will still be able to search for partial matches by adding an * after the partial beginning. For example beg* will find both beggar and beginner. This will only apply to pickup delivery and bill to fields. This does NOT apply to the VIN searches. A 17 digit vin will still be able to be found with a last 6 search.
The article on Wakefield Express says 9 cars came off! Might be inaccurate reporting too.
Off of KSL.com “Fire department Chief Paul Irons said that the fire started in the front half of the car carrier where an auxiliary battery was being stored. Normally the battery is used to jump-start vehicles that the carrier transports. ”
