Winnipeg, January 27, 2020 — Today, AgDealer.com launched a major enhancement to its online customer experience thanks to a partnership with financing company, CWB National Leasing, and shipping provider, Trusted Dispatch.
The bold step forward reflects the farm equipment inventory listing site’s position as a leading destination for farmers to buy agriculture equipment.
“We are excited to announce the online financing and online shipping tools for our website, which will allow farmers and equipment buyers to explore financing and shipping quotes while browsing agdealer.com,” says Nathan Mitchell, Vice President of Listings – Glacier FarmMedia.
As of January 27, 2020, within each of AgDealer.com’s equipment listings, farmers will now find buttons linking to tools from CWB National Leasing and Trusted Dispatch. These tools will allow users of the website to calculate an estimated monthly or seasonal payment and apply for financing online, or calculate their own shipping cost and book transport directly online.
“We believe this new functionality will help farmers and equipment buyers get the information they need, faster and easier, to help guide important used equipment purchasing decisions,” says Mitchell.
CWB National Leasing isn’t new to working with farmers. With over 42 years in business, they are now Canada’s largest and longest standing equipment financing provider, with a significant portion of their customers rooted in agriculture.
“Understanding our customers and supporting their needs is hugely important to us and agriculture is an essential part of our business,” says Miles Macdonell, Senior Vice-president of Sales at CWB National Leasing. “We have local account managers across the country who specialize in ag, and now we’ve got a digital solution partner that makes sense for our customers.”
Trusted Dispatch uses intelligent algorithms to instantly compute shipping costs, then connects the shipment with expert Heavy Haul truckers looking for loads. Farmers and other Shippers across Canada and the USA have made Trusted Dispatch Canada’s fastest growing booking system for Heavy Hauls.
“At Trusted Dispatch, we take great pride in being selected as the preferred shipping solution for AgDealer's customers,” says Dusty LaValley, CEO of Trusted Dispatch, adding, “We know we have a great product and have proven the need for it in the agriculture industry. We are excited to introduce our leading-edge technology to the AgDealer network. At Trusted Dispatch, we pride ourselves on customer service and we look forward to assisting equipment buyers in the future.”
