Automotive logistics provider ACERTUS electrifies its sites to prepare for the transport of EVs – Charged EVs


ACERTUS offers a comprehensive suite of automotive logistics services, including vehicle transport, storage, maintenance, title, registration and compliance services. The company is seeing growing demand for transporting EVs, so it has partnered with Oregon-based EV charging solution provider OpConnect to electrify 41 of its 67 nationwide locations.

ACERTUS will deploy charging systems across its storage, hub and prep locations to maintain EV battery health, ensuring that customers receive their vehicles fully charged and ready to drive.

“Our customers range from OEMs to fleets, and all have very different needs as they prepare for an influx of electric vehicles in market. Our nationwide transportation hub and storage locations vary drastically in terms of the power that’s available, and we needed a partner that could provide a truly customized solution,” said Trent Broberg, CEO of ACERTUS.

The electrification of 67 ACERTUS locations is already underway, and the company aims to have 80% of them electrified by early 2024. OpConnect is also training and supporting local electricians on how to install charging stations with the power available.

“As EV adoption accelerates, the charging infrastructure needs to be ready to support this increased demand,” said Dexter Turner, CEO of OpConnect. “We strive to partner with organizations that share our goal of making charging more efficient and accessible. With its experience in transportation, logistics, and storage, and its commitment to supporting electrification, ACERTUS shows great promise in helping move this mission forward.”
