What is the Car Remarketing Association Europe?
CARA, the Car Remarketing Association Europe, was established as a non-profit organization to support the market for used cars.
Our members each have a large footprint within the European market and are mainly active in sectors such as car manufacturing, fleet management, leasing, car auctions, car service providers and car data management. Of course, European dealers of used cars are also very welcome within our association. In addition, we have support partners who are very interested in our activities but who are not included in the foregoing support category.
We come forward as an independent source within the European Car Remarketing world. In other words, a common voice towards the market, partners and suppliers. We support the industry standards and harmonize processes, without interfering with the policies of companies.

Objectives and Activities
We as an association have clear goals about the remarketing industry. Therefore we want to achieve more and deliver what we, our members and partners have all agreed upon. In the past we worked on the Fear Wear and Tear Guidelines, currently we are working on various topics, such as 'Data & Correct Mileage Reading', 'e-CMR', 'CARA Academy'. You may read all about the deliverables on our website.
In order to return the knowledge and skills of the association and of our members to the market, our association created the CARA Academy. With the establishment of the CARA Academy we want to support the education of the automotive sector on remarketing topics. The high-quality sessions are virtual training courses led by an instructor, delivered by senior remarketing experts.
