With an aim to accelerate deliveries, electric car maker Tesla has started manufacturing its own car carrier trailers as stated by CEO Elon Musk.
The company is seeing a production of about 4,000 Model 3 vehicles per week. Also, it is witnessing an increase in delivery volume by a factor of 3-4 in some markets and therefore, logistics is becoming a bottleneck.
“Shortages of railway cargo carriers, trucks, trailers and drivers are already common in the industry, but Tesla’s sudden volume increase highlights the issue even more,” a report stated.
Tesla’s delivery volume is increasing so much this week as the company is looking to end the quarter strong. The company is now facing a problem where they are running out of car carriers. As it is often the case with Tesla, they decided to come up with a solution in-house: they are building their own car carriers.
Along with this, the electric car maker has also announced a door-to-door service named ‘Tesla Direct’ to help in the delivery of Model 3 during rush week.
