The Mobile Enhancement Retailers Association (MERA) announced that its opening its doors to expediters, a segment of mobile electronics not always associated with retail, but a growing one nonetheless.
According to MERA, the group has expanded its Class “A” membership to allow expediters to join MERA, effective Oct. An expediter sells after-market electronics (or other mobile products) to auto dealerships, and often provides the installation services as well. While some mobile dealers count expediting as part of their business, many expediters do not operate business-to-consumer retail operations.
“A number of our retail members have expanded into expediting,” said MERA’s president, Robert “Bob” Graham. “We realize, too, that MERA has much to offer this specialized segment of the industry. This is a positive move for MERA and for the mobile enhancement industry.”
