Tesla to Combat Distribution Problems With Its Own Car Carriers

Tesla to Combat Distribution Problems With Its Own Car Carriers Tesla starts building own car carrier trailers to cope with Model 3 delivery rush

Hopefully, we will get to see these new auto carriers in action soon. Earlier this month, Musk acknowledged that the company was facing more logistical problems now than production delays.

Earlier this week, Tesla announced a door-to-door service called "Tesla Direct" for Model 3 deliveries.

Also last week, Tesla said on the US Department of Justice was investigating Chief Executive Elon Musk's public statements in August that he was considering taking the electric carmaker private, the latest and biggest threat to Musk and his leadership of the electric vehicle maker. "A Tesla Customer Experience Professional will drive your vehicle to your home or office", Los Angeles metro area delivery manager Jeremy Pomp emailed customers.

The delivery program, which is reportedly called "Tesla Direct", comes near the end of a quarter in which Musk has said the company will produce and deliver over double the number of vehicles it did in the second quarter, when it set a company record for quarterly production and deliveries (it made 53,339 vehicles and delivered 40,740).




It was August 7, when Musk tweeted that he has the funding.

On Tuesday, Tesla said it was fulfilling the request of the Justice Department for the documents, which is related to the announcement of privatizing the Tesla by Elon Musk. The coming week is incredibly intense. The volunteers are answering questions from buyers picking up their new vehicles whom Tesla staff are too busy to handle.

Have a Tesla news tip? Since production began, then Tesla has struggled to ramp up production.

According to the publication, Tesla will continue to offer delivery to some customers in and near Los Angeles throughout the week, though the publication did not say whether the delivery service will be offered elsewhere or whether it will be free. With that being said, anything Tesla can do to help its customers get behind the wheel of the new Model 3 more quickly may help its bottom line, as Q3 draws to a close.
