Welcome to Carmover. This blog’s mission will be to follow US auto shipping trends and provide and opine on key metrics as they relate to the open and enclosed auto shipping as a business. As an individual in the auto shipping business (3+ years) I have seen and experienced much that I feel may be benefit to US consumers. In the coming weeks I plan to submit entries that I feel are relevant, topical, interesting, and meaty. To put it bluntly, I will not blog just to blog. Hopefully you find the information useful enough to bookmark this. Only time will tell
