Tesla to Combat Distribution Problems With Its Own Car Carriers

Tesla to Hand Deliver Model 3's to Increase Sales Before the End of Q3

Apologies, we're upgrading our logistics system, but running into an extreme shortage of vehicle carrier trailers.

Some news outlets interpreted the description as an indication that Tesla is building its own trailers from the ground up.

Tesla, which has been struggling to keep Model 3 production even somewhat consistent, is facing yet another challenge: delivering the cars to new owners. He had previously said that some Tesla customers would have to wait longer to get a response from customer service due to a significant increase in vehicle deliveries.

After spending months focused on ramping up Model 3 production volume, the company is now struggling to get the vehicles to customers. Musk also said that Tesla would build and deliver twice as many they did in the second quarter.

Tesla starts building own car carrier trailers to cope with Model 3 delivery rush

While the method they are using is a bit unusual, if it does help them overcome their delivery issue, maybe it is the right move right now.

First was the exclusive delivery experience event that saw hundreds of Model 3s being driven away by their owners.

Gabrielle Toledano, who joined Tesla as the Chief People Officer in May 2017 e-mailed Tesla boss, Elon Musk suggesting him to promote employees to prevent them from continuing their advocacy for unionization. Goldman Sachs analyst David Tamberrino, who has a sell rating on the stock, estimates third-quarter Model 3 deliveries of about 52 000. "A lot of people getting the Model 3 are buying an electric auto for the first time, and they have a lot of questions about charging that we're happy to answer". These offers only last until the end of September. Customers in Los Angeles are receiving emails offering to deliver cars directly to their homes and offices for free. "As a future Model 3 owner in the Bay Area, this is your opportunity to come pick-up your Model 3 this weekend", said an invitation posted on the Tesla Motors Club forum.

On the plus side, Tesla is aiming for record production and delivery numbers.
