From 2011 to 2013 USA InterCargo Logistics has increased the number of containers shipped each year. More automobiles are filling up ships leaving U.S. Ports, from US Auctions boosting revenue for vessel operators and, in turn, helping USA InterCargo clients save on shipping costs.


Besides the sheer numbers, the types of vehicles customers are purchasing are also changing, according to President of USA InterCargo, Mindaugas Balcius.


“There's a significant shift from salvage and accident vehicles to used vehicles that are market-ready,” Balcius said.


This means used vehicle auctions such as Adesa and Manheim should see a continued growth in customer base. USA InterCargo's concern is that these auctions might not be ready to accommodate online buyers from foreign countries, adjusting to longer wait times for wire transfers, or handling foreign-speaking clients. That's the reason USA InterCargo will continue with hiring and training multi-lingual staff and expanding on their technology solutions for web and mobile.


 

The breakdown:

From 2011 to 2012 USA InterCargo increased containers shipped 8.007%
 

From 2012 to 2013 USA InterCargo increased containers shipped 25.225%



USA InterCargo fully expects those numbers to continue to rise in 2014. This means lower rates for clients shipping multiple automobiles.

 

A few areas of growth for auto exports will be West Coast Africa and South East Asia. USA InterCargo expects a very strong demand in Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, and Benin. Buyers from these countries continue showing up and bidding at US auctions. With their economies on the rise, USA InterCargo fully anticipates their buying power to get stronger.


“We are witnessing a similar story in developing Asian markets of Myanmar, Cambodia and Thailand,” Balcius said, “The growth of the middle class means demand for luxury vehicles, so we expect a lot of used Lexus, BMW, Mercedes to be loaded in Asia-bound containers.”



According to USA InterCargo shipping line manager, Brandy Graves, “USA InterCargo has maintained steady rates for the past 6 months, and some areas have decreased (Jebel Ali, Aqaba, Jordan and Klaipeda, LT).”


Graves anticipates that shipping rates will remain steadily low through the end of February. After February she anticipates that the shipping cost patterns will stay consistent with 2011 and 2012.


“Because of our relationship with the carriers, some shipping companies received increases from MERSK and MSC, USA InterCargo didn’t,” Graves said.


Over the next year, one area of concern is the Russian market and other CIS territories. The respective governments in these regions have been adopting restrictive policies against used and new vehicle imports, either through raising import taxes, age and model restrictions, emission and safety requirements. These restrictions are market-wide, they impact all imports, not just vehicles form the US.


“We will continue monitoring the situation and adjusting to the new regulations,” said Balcius.


USA InterCargo thanks all of their customers and dedicated clients for their continued business. Because of USA InterCargo's strong and thriving client base, they have been able to grow year after year.

Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc., IAA, released their new Market Value Tool for the iPhone in mid November of 2013 as part of its all-encompassing salvage analysis platform which allows buyers to estimate vehicle values. According to the press release, IAA is the first in the vehicle auction industry to release such a mobile market value tool. CSAToday customers now have the means to print, save, and share value findings on the go, right from their phones. The user friendly app allows customers to make easy, intuitive comparisons and estimate the value of their vehicles anywhere they bring their iPhone. It deals out information such as highest and lowest sale prices as well as the locations, dates, and prices where similar vehicles were sold.

“We remain steadfast in our commitment to invest in mobile technologies that better anticipate and address our customers’ buying and selling needs,” said Tom O’Brien, chief executive officer of Insurance Auto Auctions. 

The application allows customers to scan, type, or speak the VIN number or year/make/model into the app and compare it to other vehicles that have been sold in previous IAA auctions. According to the press release, IAA looks at several points of comparison such as damage details, location information, vehicle specifications, and model options. There are also several intuitive filters on the app for damages, loss type, engine size, and more.

USA InterCargo is interested in which of our clients are using this tool, and which features of the app are the most helpful?

Download the app by visiting the Apple Store.
