CFR Classic talks Containerization with Automotive Logistics

Automotive Logistics, the leading resource for global automotive logistics news, recently released an in-depth article on Containerization.  While Ro-Ro is the traditional method of shipping finished vehicles, containerization is becoming increasingly viable as the automotive industry decentralizes and introduces more EVs. As a leading international logistics provider, CFR Classic’ expertise lies in shipping cars in containers.

Christoph Seitz, Co-Owner of CFR Classic, discusses the benefits of shipping cars in containers, opportunities in Asia, and containers as a solution for the shipment of electric vehicles (EVs):

“Essentially, for any lane where ro-ro is not the ideal solution, because of various factors such as cost, multiple transshipments or handovers, transit time, infrequency or critical mass, containerization with racks makes sense,”

CFR Classic’ container services really took off with volume business from Tesla, and Seitz says the opportunity presented by the EV sector is enhanced by the fact that EV start-ups are looking beyond the legacy of ro-ro tenders.

“China’s dramatic increase in EV activity provides a lot of opportunity because, just like Tesla was back in 2013, most EV start-ups are much more open-minded to alternative solutions to the traditional ro-ro model,”

Joey has spent his entire teen and adult life in cars. Joey's father owned a Jeep store, and Joey had his own used car lot that he ran himself from age 22 until I was 30. At 30 years old, Joey got "out of" the car business and joined CFR Rinkens. Joey started when there were only 9 people at CFR, but the company grew to over 150 employees during his time there. When Joey started, CFR Rinkens was shipping about 40 vehicles per week from Los Angeles. Joey established locations in Houston, Miami, and New York and within the first year, CFR went to shipping 150 cars per week. Joey started as a customer service rep and later moved up to sales manager, operations manager, and marketing manager. Joey then moved to Europe for two years and spent the entire time traveling through Europe meeting with clients. In 2022, Joey and his partners purchased CFR Classic from CFR Rinkens and he returned to California to watch over the operation more closely.
