"Corsia Logistics shipped my car from Sarasota, FL to the city of Los Angeles, CA. James from Corsia Logistics made it easy for me to get started with my order. All my questions and concerns were addressed by him. I must admit. I was a little worried when my car was handed over to another transport company to move my vehicle. But, it all worked out. I guess they really know what they are doing. The transport driver, Mr. Greer, was a really good guy. He handled my car with kid gloves. The car dealership that received my vehicle for me in L.A. said they checked it out upon its arrival. They found no problems with the car. Also, after my car was delivered. Corsia Logistics contacted me to make sure I was satisfied with the delivery. I was…I am satisfied with the process from start to finish. Corsia Logistics, thank you so much for your services. Thank you for ensuring my car was transported and delivered safely."

Double ouch. Musk continued. “No, seriously, it’s good that Apple is moving and investing in this direction. But cars are very complex compared to phones or smartwatches. You can’t just go to a supplier like Foxconn [the Taiwanese firm that manufacturers the iPad and iPhone] and say, ‘Build me a car’.
“For Apple, the car is the next logical thing to finally offer a significant innovation. A new pencil or a bigger iPad alone were not relevant enough.”
Triple ouch. No official response from Apple yet, but Siri’s said to be FUMING…

How to Prepare a Car for Shipping - Steps:
Detail / Wash your vehicle. Clean it inside and out so you can do a thorough inspection. The inspection is a very important component of the vehicle shipping process. Washing it will make it easy for you and the trucker to check for scratches and dings on the outside, and mark down any wear and tear on the interior. Take photos to document the condition of your vehicle at pick-up and compare with the condition at delivery.
Take down any aftermarket accessories. Secure or remove any spoilers, ski or bike racks or other detachable elements as these can damage the vehicle during transport. Also, make sure convertible tops and windows are secured and closed properly.
Disable all car alarms or make sure you have given instructions to the car transport company how to disconnect it in case the alarm goes off. If an alarm goes off and the trucker does not know how to disable it they have the right to mechanically remove the alarm.
Do not top off your gasoline. It is recommended that you leave less than half a tank gas for the company to load and unload the vehicle. They do not need more as they will not be driving the car unless otherwise specified in the order.
Check your vehicle with a mechanic to make sure there are no fluid leaks and the breaks are working properly. Make sure the tires are also in a good shape and fully inflated. If you have fluid leaks tell the company so they can prevent leaks on other cars. In such a case they have to load your vehicle at the lower deck.
Verify the car shipping insurance. Ask the auto transport company about their insurance policy, they can tell you for how much your vehicle is insured during transit and send you a copy of the policy.
Ask how to track your vehicle. Most auto transport companies will explain that when you ask. With us you can track your vehicle live by calling us during business hours or emailing at anytime. With Corsia Logistics we send a copy of the insurance upon customer’s request, however we always check the carrier’s insurance before dispatch.

Transporting a vehicle is not a simple task, but with our help things cannot go wrong. Many people and companies ship vehicles across the US daily, and many choose covered auto transport trailers. This is a preferred method of transport for classic, sports and luxury automobiles. The owners of such cars want to preserve their condition and closed auto transport carrier provides the necessary protection. In fact, we understand that every vehicle is special and we always recommend enclosed trailer to our customers. Enclosed auto transport requires the right equipment and trained people to do the job. We know you have a choice when it comes to shipping a car and one of the best options is always enclosed auto transport. We work only with high safety rated carriers from across the country, and we can offer both hard sided and soft sided carriers to transport an automobile.
Most carriers are equipped with hydraulic lift gates to hold the vehicle horizontal while loading and unloading it. The carrier drivers have experience in handling high-end and classic automobiles. Enclosed trailers offer complete protection from elements. This is the safest method to transport a car.
When you are shipping an exotic vehicle or your project or antique automobile, for example, you deserve the best protection available. Corsia Logistics works with the best carriers nationwide – all licensed and insured, reliable enclosed car shipping transporters. We can accommodate every demand for every precious vehicle when it comes to shipping it via an enclosed auto carrier. Moving a car is not like moving a couch, and we know how to handle this cargo with care. The whole process requires great coordination between agents, dispatchers and carriers – constant communication is the key efficiency element that will guarantee a job well don
Germany and the USA are both wealthy countries that show two of the highest car ownership rates in the world and we can notice many similarities between the two countries in regard to transportation. They have similar government systems – both are democracies with federal systems and a history of local self-government. In both Germany and the USA, the automobile industry, along with related fields, represents a large share of the national economy – more than 10% of the GDP in both countries. Industries related to automobile manufacturing, such as auto dealerships, repair services, together with gas services and road construction account for more than 10% of all jobs in these Western countries. They both own a big portion of their economic strength exactly to the automobile industry. Both have similar motorization rate (number of passenger cars per 1,000 inhabitants), excessive limited access highways, and large urban areas which were rebuilt after World War II – all factors that affect automobile usage and behavior on the road. Germany and the USA both have high standards of living and the possession of a car in both countries is considered an important status symbol. There are, however, some differences between the two countries.
Travel behavior is a topic of research for many scholars. Therefore, numerous frameworks can be used to compare aspects of behavior on the road. In his research on the travel behavior in Germany and the USA, Ralph Buehler identified several factors of high significance that affect the perception of the automobile industry and the levels and types of car usage among the population. According to many researchers, including Buehler, the key explanatory factors for dissimilarities in car use seem to be the socioeconomic and demographic factors. It is proven that the daily amount of time spend on travel is similar worldwide. However, wealthier individuals, whose higher income allows for more car use and longer car travel distances, are able to reach farther distances by car than poorer people who for the same time could only access destination close-by, usually by cycling or on foot.
Spatial development patterns are another factor that affects the choice of transport due to the differences created in time, cost and convenience. Cities with dense population, where more destinations can be reached on foot, are usually related to higher-quality and better supply of infrastructure for non-automobile transport modes. Such places host residents who make more trips with short distances as well primarily because of the low supply of parking areas, the need for slower speed, and the opportunity costs they raise. Consequently, individuals would often choose to reduce their daily car trips and walk instead.
We cannot neglect the importance of culture and attitudes as well. Social norms and personal preferences affect the decisions we make on a daily basis and our choice for transport mode is no different. Supporters of environmental protection, for example, would drive fewer kilometers a day, proving a correlation between environmental attitudes and travel behavior. They might even select their residence location to be a densely populated city where more transportation modes are present thus again affecting their car usage. Similar logic could be applied to athletes, who prefer cycling and walking instead of driving short distances.
Another factor that largely affects the convenience of different transport modes is the nature of transport policies in a country. In Western Europe, car use is more costly and less attractive primarily because of transport policies, which then increases the attractiveness and utility of alternative modes of transport. Here comes the main difference between car usage in Germany and in the USA. Transit supply is overall more convenient in Western Europe than in the USA. There are already developed networks of cycling infrastructure and walking routes for pedestrians that provide direct and safe ways to reach a destination. The greater supply of transit service and the better infrastructure for alternative to automobile transport modes make these options less costly and time-consuming, more reliable and convenient, thus reducing the desire for car use.
While Germany has been developing their infrastructure of alternative transport modes, the USA government has traditionally funded highways more generously. Expenditures for transport have increased more than six times in the past 40 years, unlike Germany, where the increase is only 1.5 times. Germany has a longer tradition of subsidies for countrywide transit supply, and in 2001 almost 90% of Germans lived within one kilometer of a transit stop, while in America, this was only about 45% of the population. Overall, German transit systems provide two times more vehicle kilometers of transit service per inhabitant than in the USA. Throughout the past fifty years, Germany has issued policies and laws that restrict car usage in cities and stimulate public transport. In addition to that, gasoline prices seem to be much higher in Germany than in the USA, which is yet another reason to avoid driving.
What can government officials do to decrease car usage in the US?

While investments in rail transport system continue to vanish in the States, Europe keeps going forward by investing a lot in maintaining its public transport systems and also expanding new rail sectors in all the areas where this mode of transport is undeveloped. Switzerland, France and Spain for example already have been using high-speed rail transport for years now. In most European cities, people choose to travel by train a lot more often compared to the US because there are various routes available and by doing so they save a lot of money and don’t have to drive.
Reducing traffic jams and air pollution as much as possible, and creating new jobs opportunities are some of the main reasons why Europe has been investing in its public transportation systems. Buses for example are the least used means of public transportation in Europe and that is why the European Union funded the European bus System of the Future (EBSF) project in 2014. The purpose of the EBSF project was to increase the bus system attractiveness so that more and more people use buses to travel throughout Europe. Here is what the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation says:
“The EBSF team has created an intelligent system, which makes efficient use of information and provides different bus system solutions adapted to the specific needs of all stakeholders. The researchers have also constructed innovative vehicles and infrastructure that offer improved and enhanced comfort to drivers and passengers, accessibility to all users and smart use of energy.”
The 2014 Transit Scores by Walk Score analyzed data from 316 US cities and neighborhoods and by taking into consideration types of routes, frequency, distances between various stops etc. decided that New York, San Francisco, Boston, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Chicago, Seattle, Baltimore, Los Angeles and Portland are the top ten US cities with good public transportation systems.
But when compared to most European cities, even the top ten US cities that have good public transport systems are far behind Europe. According to an article by the Ecoonomist, “America’s fastest and most reliable line, the north-eastern corridor’s Acela, averages a sluggish 70 miles per hour between Washington and Boston. The French TGV from Paris to Lyon, by contrast, runs at an average speed of 140mph. America’s trains aren’t just slow; they are late. Where European passenger service is punctual around 90% of the time, American short-haul service achieves just a 77% punctuality rating. Long-distance trains are even less reliable.”
The United States’ infrastructure is also getting worse while the money spend for maintaining and investing in the public transportation systems has been declining during the last decades. “Total public spending on transport and water infrastructure has fallen steadily since the 1960s and now stands at 2.4% of GDP. Europe, by contrast, invests 5% of GDP in its infrastructure, while China is racing into the future at 9%. America’s spending as a share of GDP has not come close to European levels for over 50 years. Over that time funds for both capital investments and operations and maintenance have steadily dropped,” according to The Economist.
