Super Dispatch listens to feedback at AHAA

The bi-annual Auto Haulers Association of America Conference was in Fernandino Beach, FL. this fall, and Super Dispatch was happy to be in attendance for the second time ever.

Earlier this spring, we made a blog post about the ultimate takeaways our company had from the AHAA conference. The key difference between the fall and the spring was the amount of in-depth feedback we were able to get from all of the carriers at the conference. In the spring, we walked away from AHAA with a lasting impression about how time consuming it is for carriers to run a car hauling enterprise. This fall, our biggest takeaway was the extensive feedback we got on how carriers business needs change as they scale up. We were happy to hear that carriers really appreciate how focused Super Dispatch is on implementing their feedback, and we were surprised that it was not more common place.

Review of Auto Hauler Association of America Conference from Super Dispatch

Auto Hauler Association of America AHAA


In April, a few members of Super Dispatch attended the Auto Hauler Association of America Conference in sunny Atlanta, GA. AHAA is an association of car haulers that was created to fill the black hole of information that plagues the auto hauling industry. The association holds the conference a few times every year to further it’s goal to “focus on the needs of auto haulers and vehicle logistics providers of all sizes.” The event was filled with car haulers talking about efficiency, business practices, Elogs and much more.

Super Dispatch’s Head of Sales Emily, and Super Dispatch’s CEO Bek, sat down to talk about their biggest takeaways from the conference:

Bek’s biggest takeaways:

  • “A lot of the haulers have to be more competitive, especially at these new rates, to compete [in the space] of OEMS. So efficiency is ever more important.”
  • “Electronic Logging Mandate has done a number on these carriers. A lot of them are struggling with poor technology and especially with [decreased] capacity. This [will] continue to be one of the things that the carriers and technology providers have to overcome.”
  • “I think that it’s more important, especially as [car] carriers grow, to keep all their information in one place. And keep everyone notified.”
  • “One of the most exciting parts for me, was to meet our customers face-to-face. Not only to see how they use our product, but to get feedback on how we can continue to improve as their needs change.”

Emily’s biggest takeaways:

  • “Just seeing what these car haulers go through on a day-to-day basis. It makes me feel good about the technology that we are selling, to give these carriers more autonomy
  • “[I really want to continue to focus on] how Super Dispatch can give them back so much more time. It doesn’t matter if they are away from the office, like at a conference. They can check in on their phone or iPad, and get a really good grip on what’s going on that day.”
