Tesla starts making its own car carriers

Responding to a customer who has been waiting for the delivery of his Tesla Model 3, Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla tweeted that the company is building its own car carriers to ease the delivery bottlenecks that it has been facing since the past few weeks.

Last week, Musk had admitted that the company was facing acute logistics problems which was holding up deliveries of several Tesla customers. With a spike in production of the Model 3, Tesla’s logistics network could not keep up with the sudden increase in volumes.

Tesla has also started a door-to-door service called Tesla Direct. As a part of this service, Tesla will deliver the car directly to the customer at his home or office instead to having customers visit the over-crowded delivery centres.

The electric carmaker is trying to increase its delivery volumes as much as possible so as to achieve a record quarter. Musk believes that Tesla will be delivering twice as many vehicles this quarter as compared to the last quarter.
