Tesla building auto carrier trailers amid "delivery logistics hell"

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

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

"If you have a Model 3 and you'd like it delivered, we can probably get it done for you by the end of this week".

Dozens of Tesla Model 3 sedans are reportedly being held in this Union Pacific freight depot in Salt Lake City. First, the company opened up sales to anyone.

"Started building our own vehicle carriers this weekend to alleviate load", Musk said.

Kimbal Musk is the brother of Tesla CEO Elon Musk and a member of the company's board of directors.

Then the Swiss seemed to suddenly lose his nerve, making a catalogue of unforced errors to allowing the Slovak to break to love. I have my weapons, she also has hers. "That's sort of like me playing ahead, but I'm still not 100 percent sure yet".

The Justice Department asked Tesla for documents about Musk's announcement, Tesla said, describing it as a "voluntary request".

Earlier this month, Elon said Tesla's most pressing issues had moved from producing vehicles to delivering them, though he said delivery issues were easier to fix and would be solved soon.

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

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

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.

In order to tackle the "extreme shortage of auto carrier trailers", Tesla has started to construct vehicle carriers itself, according to Autocar, as part of the company's logistics systems upgrade. This comes after the intense pressure being placed on Musk to prove that the company can deliver its promises. The perk was originally supposed to end on September 16 then was extended. The potential customer who got the $3 000 discount offer said he was told if he took delivery of a Tesla before month end, he also would get free supercharging for life. "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.

"Deliveries should outpace production in Q3 as our delivery system stabilizes", Tesla said.
