The partnership will provide car dealers with easy, self-service transportation ordering directly on the platform
CHICAGO, Jan. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Montway Auto Transport, one of the nation’s leading third-party logistics brokerages, announced its partnership with Auction Edge, the premier digital remarketing technology provider. Through their partnership, Montway will provide integrated transportation ordering to more than 55,000 dealers and over 175 auctions through Auction Edge’s national marketplace: EDGE Pipeline.
EDGE Pipeline is a digital platform that connects auctions with their valued dealer partners to market and source inventory. Since 2012, Auction Edge has helped power partner auctions to transact millions of vehicles annually. The addition of “one-click” transportation ordering will further modernize the user experience, saving dealers time and improving efficiency.
“Digitalization of the supply chain is a trend that is here to stay,” said Kaye Ceille, Business Solutions Group President at Montway Auto Transport. “Integrating auto transport into a digital remarketing platform offers a full-service solution for dealers. Auction Edge will leverage Montway’s technology to seamlessly integrate with EDGE Pipeline and make booking auto transport for vehicles purchased at auctions anywhere in the country as easy as clicking a button.”
Dealers continue to source vehicles from multiple outlets, a strategy that has been growing post-pandemic. Auctions that provide an easy way to order fast, safe and reliable transport digitally help dealers better manage their inventory and meet consumer demands. In addition to transporting full loads, Montway is the leader in nationwide single-unit moves and will improve the post-sale experience for dealers by building a customized solution for Auction Edge users. Montway has a strong reputation in the industry, proven by over 80,000 online customer reviews in the retail market.
“Montway is a pioneer in the transportation industry and shares our commitment to improving efficiency for dealers,” said Dan Diedrich, CEO of Auction Edge. “The ability for dealers to have integrated ordering for long-haul transportation aligns perfectly with EDGE Pipeline’s vision to be the home of the dealer for auctions. We are excited to partner with Montway to deliver this seamless functionality.”
Montway’s partnership with Auction Edge comes after the recent announcement of its merger with Auction Direct Transport (ADT), a nationwide automotive transport brokerage company. The two partnerships reinforce Montway’s commitment to strengthening its capabilities in dealer and auction transportation across the country.
