ACERTUS’ Hubs and Integrated Logistics Deliver the Service FMCs Need

ACERTUS’ Hubs and Integrated Logistics Deliver the Service FMCs Need

Fleet-management companies (FMCs) and company-owned fleets face tough odds when it comes to acquiring new inventory. A global shortage of semiconductor chips has directly impacted new-vehicle production, resulting in less available inventory and an unprecedented time for the automotive industry.

As FMCs compete to acquire new inventory, they are having to hold on to assets much longer than they typically would. This requires keeping vehicles in top condition and ensuring they can be cared for, prepped, reconditioned and maintenanced on a more regular basis.

Similarly, during this time of unusually low vehicle inventory, companies with fleets are being forced to get more creative with how and where they deploy their assets. Many are looking at ways to be more strategic with fleet-vehicle planning, repositioning assets to more in-demand markets wherever possible.

To address these many needs, it’s crucial these companies have access to fast, efficient transport services, as well as a means of temporarily storing, preparing and deploying feet vehicles for continued use.

During this time of unusually low vehicle inventory, it’s crucial to have access to fast, efficient transport services and a means of temporarily storing, preparing, reconditioning and deploying fleet vehicles for continued use.

ACERTUS can serve as a single source to deliver a streamlined, fully integrated logistics program, complete with transport service, storage options and the ability to have vehicles prepped, reconditioned, titled, registered and more.

Strategically Located Hubs
Whether FMCs have inventory that requires long-term storage or need a place to temporarily keep fleet vehicles before they’re deployed, ACERTUS has 67 fully insured and secure facilities, strategically located across the continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and Canada.

This wide geographic coverage, combined with ACERTUS’ unique hub-and-spoke model, ensures the access needed to keep operations moving. Vehicles can be hauled to one of our hubs, given any necessary prep or maintenance and then collected for final transport by one of the 1,000+ drivers in our network.

With strategic hub positioning, companies can gain the ability to hold and deploy fleet vehicles, pivoting quickly to different markets – especially those where there is more demand. ACERTUS also offers flexible capacity, so as our customers’ needs fluctuate, we give them the ability to scale and flex up or down with transport requests, depending on demand.

In-Storage Service
ACERTUS’ hubs are also positioned to assist FMCs and others with a wide range of in-storage vehicle services, including but not limited to:

– Reconditioning work
– Detailing
– Oil Changes
– Tire Rotations
– Windshield
– Repairs
– Body Work
– Repairs
– Fueling
– Electric vehicle charging

With full-service availability, prep work can be handled while fleet vehicles are in storage, before they ever reach their final destination – simplifying and adding efficiencies to the larger vehicle-transport process.

En Route Title and Registration
ACERTUS can further optimize the vehicle-logistics process for FMCs by offering on-the-go titling and registration services – supporting large volumes of titles and vehicle registrations in all 50 U.S. states, Puerto Rico and Canada. While fleet vehicles are being transported, temporarily stored or serviced, ACERTUS’ 150 dedicated processors can complete title work, initial registrations and renewals – further streamlining operations, reducing downtime and guaranteeing vehicles are fully ready to drive before their final transport.

With direct DMV connections in 13 states, ACERTUS offers in-house DMV processing in those states, leveraging this electronic integration to reduce the amount of hard-copy paperwork companies must complete. At the same time, our pre-approved courier team makes regular and direct runs to DMV locations across the country, ensuring any work that must be processed in person happens quickly and efficiently.

ACERTUS’ expert team will leverage our strong working relationships with DMVs to further expedite service for our customers, and if even more speed is required, we’ll overnight critical requests or documents to DMVs for faster processing or response. All of this allows ACERTUS to help companies keep their operations moving without unnecessary downtime or delays.
