The National Independent Automobile Dealers Association (NIADA) has selected MetroGistics as a Bronze-Level National Corporate Partner, allowing for preferred pricing on vehicle moves and extended credit to NIADA’s more-than 16,000 member dealerships, according to a company announcement.
This designation was partly motivated by the growth of digital auction purchases, noted NIADA Senior Vice President of Member Services Scott Lilja.
“With the used-vehicle retail market becoming more digital-oriented, our members are looking for vehicle transport and electronic title/registration services to serve the needs of their out-of-local-market clientele,” Lilja said.
MetroGistics, a St. Louis, Ill.-based company, has a network of more than 4,000 carriers across the country and offers national driveway, storage, and title and registration services. In December 2017, the company acquired Metro Title Services, a national provider of title and registration services whose customer base included more than 2,200 government licensing jurisdictions across the U.S. and Canada.
Every day, Metro Title Services process an average of 1,000 transactions such as titles and registrations, renewals, replacement credentials, repo/bonded/salvage titles, corrections, and refunds.
