Supply–chain obstacles, changing laws and regulations, employee safety precautions, productivity concerns – most companies are worried about all this and more, as they confront the realities of COVID-19 and its impacts to their business, inventory or workforce.
Because of this, many have even taken steps to reexamine their overall operations, with the goal of eliminating any inefficiencies and boosting productivity. with some of their employees either unable to, or uncomfortable with, coming back to work, many companies are reevaluating their day-to-day priorities.
With so many moving parts, fleet compliance needs are the last thing businesses want to worry about right As such, many companies with larger fleets – such as for-hire trucking companies, FMCs, power grid companies and waste disposal businesses – are choosing to outsource carrier compliance services to a third-party provider like ACERTUS.
Similar to hiring an outside provider to handle all tax needs, a partnership with an outside compliance service provider takes a significant workload off the back of a business, while also granting that business a sense of relief that all compliance needs will be handled accurately, professionally and on time.
While choosing to partner with an outside provider is certainly an investment, it’s also a step toward more risk protection and increased overall value. If companies fail to perform compliance services correctly, they can face poor audit results and hefty fines. By outsourcing these services to a third-party provider, companies can rest assured that their compliance needs will be met with efficiency and accuracy, across the board.
In fact, ACERTUS’ dedicated teams have deep industry and motor carrier compliance knowledge, as well as a commitment to excellent service as they work, day in and day out, to keep all vehicles regulatory-compliant.
