(TRADE X), a B2B cross-border automotive trading platform, announced that it has partnered with Alliance Inspection Management (AiM) for pre-owned vehicle inspections in North America. AiM will perform vehicle inspections for all TRADE X transactions in Canada and the U.S., to ensure vehicles meet the buying and selling criteria of car dealers, importers, exporters, fleet owners, rental companies, mobility solution providers, and other users of TRADE X’s vehicle trading platform.
AiM conducts more than 12 million vehicle inspections each year and is one of the largest providers of third-party inspections in North America. Specifically, AiM evaluates vehicles and provides condition reports based on an industry-wide, standardized grading system, providing buyers with the highest level of comfort and security.
