COVID-19

Updated October 16, 2020

Driving forward with dedication, purpose and a commitment to partnership

William Billiter 
CEO of ACERTUS 

Initially, as the COVID-19 pandemic spread rapidly and the auto industry was impacted, I had many questions about where we at ACERTUS would be after six months or a year, let alone just a month into this crisis. I wasn’t sure how far the coronavirus and its ripple effects would extend, but I knew we at ACERTUS had to stay committed to our long-term goals, while always keeping the health and safety of our employees and clients as our top priorities. 

Navigating the crisis and remaining flexible 

Each one of our businesses had its own unique set of challenges and opportunities amid this pandemic, but that’s really the beauty of all these businesses being part of one larger ACERTUS organization. For instance, our car haul business had great momentum throughout the entire month of March. And then, as inventory became overcrowded on retailers’ lots later in March and into April, our drive away, storage and title-and-registration service lines became key performers.  

Our diversified service offerings and our ability to shift short-term focus to achieve long-term goals are what allowed ACERTUS to move fast, stay agile and support our customers whenever and however they need us. 
This flexibility has proved invaluable for ACERTUS customerstime and time again, giving us even more determination and resolve to meet our goals and further grow our efforts. 

Apart, but connected and productive as ever 

Even though our ACERTUS team members have largely been apart from each other throughout the last few months, our communication has only gotten clearer and stronger. We navigated this uncertain time as one emboldened team. COVID-19 has essentially brought us all together and made us more productive than ever. 

Currently, we are reimagining our new workplace and developing our reentry plans. We want to ensure our office mitigates any potential risks and functions properly, while allowing any employees who can work from home to continue doing so. In those cases where employees are required to be in the office, we’ll be taking extraordinary safety measures to keep them protected at all times.  

I am confident that our ability to thrive during this unusual time is a direct reflection of all the hard work, endless dedication and sheer passion of our ACERTUS employees to deliver the future to our customers now. 

Our relentless drive to deliver continues  

As we accelerate forward, I’ve realized there are abundant opportunities for ACERTUS and its customers now and in the future. While some of these opportunities may involve us looking at a process from a new perspective or considering an alternative solution, I’m confident our customer partnerships will continue to be strong, successful and supportive in 2020 and beyond. 

Our well-positioned infrastructure, thoroughly organized teams and positive bottom-line results continue to give us an edge in the industry and allow us to serve these customers with the same responsive, professional and dedicated service ACERTUS has come to be known for. 

When it comes down to it, I’ve always firmly believed that clients align with companies that have clear values, a set purpose, a sharp identity and the ability go above and beyond. This is certainly true at this time, as current and future clients assess which vehicle logistics providers are ready to work with dedication and purpose, and which ones keep in mind the goal of achieving shared success alongside their customer partners. 

An Update on COVID-19 for Our Customers

An Update on COVID-19 for Our Customers

ACERTUS’ number one priority is to ensure the health, safety and well-being of our customers, employees and suppliers.

In light of the evolving COVID-19 (Coronavirus), our team is closely monitoring and adhering to the suggestions of the U.S. and state public health guidelines.  We are reviewing information put forth by the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as the situation is developing.

Among the concerns raised due to the impact of the Coronavirus is whether the supply chain will be affected. ACERTUS continues to be fully operational; however, as a precaution, we have a business continuity plan in place to minimize any operational disruption.

Effective March 16, 2020, out of an abundance of caution, most work and business functions will be conducted remotely. Most ACERTUS employees have laptop devices and our operational and technology systems are cloud based including email, phone systems, file sharing, meetings, etc. Although we are working hard to eliminate any disruption and delays to service, there may be delays in deliveries as transporters are experiencing limited capacity and delays in title and registration transaction processing. 

For our title and registration service line, we will have a leadership response team assembled to field calls. In the event DMVs shut down, our team will be unable to process, and you may experience delays. We are closely monitoring DMV closures; you can find the full list of closures below. 

With corporate locations in St. Louis, MO, Alpharetta, GA and Lenexa, KS, ACERTUS has the ability to redeploy employees if appropriate. Additionally, the broad scale and geographic coverage of our driver and carrier network enables our team to flex to meet the demand of our customers.

As always, we are here to support you with a relentless drive to deliver.

For any additional questions or concerns regarding ACERTUS and Corona virus policy and procedures, please contact Lainey Strohmeyer, Vice President of People Services. For questions about our services or sales, please contact your account representative.

In February, we assembled a cross-functional and cross-office task force and response team which includes representatives from:

  • All service lines (car haul, drive away and T&R)
  • All offices (STL, ATL, KC)
  • Members from all departments including sales, operations, marketing and people services

The COVID-19 Response Team is working diligently to plan for multiple scenarios and keep our entire ACERTUS family informed. We recognize the crucial importance of preparedness during this time of uncertainty. As this COVID-19 situation is rapidly evolving, we have increased communications to provide comprehensive resources on the topic. We are leveraging email, Ring Central, Zoom, weekly huddles, Paylocity and face-to-face communications etc. to disseminate information in real time.

In addition, the information on this webpage and other forms of communication will be updated regularly. We are sharing information in real-time, considering changes in approach that will best protect our employees and our clients, and setting plans in motion for a wide variety of contingencies.

ACERTUS is taking extra precautions to keep all team members healthy including:

  • Sanitizing supplies have been increased for employee use.
  • Evening cleaning crews have been asked to conduct deep cleans and clean more often.
  • Constant reminders to the staff of basic virus prevention techniques.
  • Temporarily modifying our company policy on outside food vendors.
  • Removed all community snacks.
  • Discontinued campus-provided lunches.
  • Asked that team members do not bring in food to share with others (bagels, donuts, etc) and refrain from purchasing lunch to be shared with your department or other departments at this time.
  • Encouraged everyone to take common sense measures to keep everyone in the ACERTUS family healthy.
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze.
  • Employees are required to wear masks in the office.

Most ACERTUS employees have laptop devices and our operational and technology systems are cloud based including email, phone systems, file sharing, meetings, etc. so in the event of any travel or workplace restrictions, most business functions and employees will resume work remotely.

For our title and registration service line, in the event of a corporate office shut down, we will have a leadership response team assembled to field calls. In the event DMVs shut down, our team will be unable to process, and you may experience delays. As of March 12, 2020, we are closely monitoring potential DMV closures.

Consistent with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the United States Department of State, we have enacted restrictions and guidelines on ACERTUS-related travel in order to help to mitigate our company’s risk of exposure to the virus:

  • International Travel: Travel to countries where the CDC has enacted level 3, or the State Department has enacted levels 3 or 4 is prohibited.
  • Domestic Travel: We have restricted all non-essential domestic travel.
  • Non-Business Travel: While these guidelines apply to business-related travel, we ask all ACERTUS employees to apply similar judgment when considering personal travel commitments, both internationally and domestically.

All Drive Away offices are operating business as usual at this time.

Infectious disease is not an area we specialize in. In the event the client has a known case we would provide them with the number to AfterMath  (877-688-0234) which is a nationwide 3rd party service that specializes in infectious disease and blood born pathogen removal.

Once the vehicle has been treated,  the client can notify us and if the vehicle needs to be picked up we will be happy to arrange.
