VAuto, a Cox Automotive brand that provides dealers with insights to help them improve their vehicle profitability, announced a new integration between Stockwave and Ready Logistics that provides Stockwave clients easier-to-see shipping costs and delivery times for vehicles at Manheim so they can more confidently decide which vehicles to buy.
“This is another great example of how Cox Automotive is working across brands to make it easier for dealers to find and buy the inventory they need,” said Derek Hansen, vice president of operations at vAuto. “With the power of Ready Logistics’ data, Stockwave gives dealers even more information at their fingertips to simplify the acquisition process and help them make informed purchase decisions.”
With the new integration, dealers can see a real-time estimate of transportation costs and delivery times for vehicles at Manheim, right from their Stockwave Glance, as well as get a detailed snapshot of transport details. The delivery window is especially important for dealers who are purchasing from a Manheim location they’ve never bought from before, as they can now instantly get an estimate of how long it will take a car to arrive—without having to invest time on the phone. The new information also helps them more precisely understand a vehicle’s acquisition cost so they can align their business plans with their transportation needs.
Stockwave gives dealers access to vehicles from more than 300 marketplaces, alongside the most complete set of wholesale and retail data, so dealers can find the vehicles their customers want and make more informed purchase decisions. Stockwave users say they feel their overall capability to source used vehicles is better than that of other dealers within their markets, and users say they have seen a notable increase in the number of used vehicles they have in stock after they started using the product. They also say that their time to research inventory has decreased since they started using Stockwave.
As a leader in full-service transportation logistics solutions, Ready Logistics aims to simplify the supply chain for dealers and make it easy to move vehicles between points.
