Tesla building vehicle carrier trailers amid "delivery logistics hell"

But with increasing production numbers, they are now facing logistical problems, one they intend to solve by building their own vehicle carriers.

First was the exclusive delivery experience event that saw hundreds of Model 3s being driven away by their owners. With this, the company sends cars to the delivery centres but also delivers them directly to a customer's doorstep. Customers in Los Angeles are receiving emails offering to deliver cars directly to their homes and offices for free.

Another initiative was Tesla Direct, a home delivery service that was also a huge success. It has hit and passed that target, which is among the reasons it can not get some Model 3 vehicles to customers. The service is advertised as "first come, first serve basis".

A spokesperson for New York Life told The Wall Street Journal that Swetnick worked for the organization for less than two years. She has held a variety of public and private sector jobs over the years, including working for federal government agencies.

"Started building our own auto carriers this weekend to alleviate load", Musk said.

Earlier this month, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Tesla's most pressing issues had moved from producing vehicles to delivering them, though he said delivery issues were easier to fix and would be solved soon. With the EV maker under pressure to deliver - on numbers as well as cars - the end of Q3 sees them pushing production, leading to transporters full of Teslas. A customer took to Twitter asking Musk about the status of a Model 3 (AWD) order placed in June. There weren't enough vehicles on site at the Fremont factory, so Tesla started giving short delivery timelines to customers who came but didn't get their auto. The company began taking $1,000 reservation deposits in March of 2016 for the new electric vehicle. "If any current Tesla owners who'd like to help educate new owners could head to Tesla delivery centers during midday on Sat/Sun & morning/evening on weekdays, that would be super appreciated!"

The Model 3 is key to Tesla increasing its profitability and Tesla's share price is down almost 30 percent since early August.
