ACERTUS Partners with OpConnect to Electrify Nationwide Locations and Better Meet Growing Demand for the Transport of Electric Vehicles

ACERTUS, the only automotive logistics-as-a-service platform, today announced a strategic partnership with US-based electric vehicle (EV) charging solution provider, OpConnect, to electrify 41 of its 67 nationwide locations. With the growing demand for transporting electric vehicles, ACERTUS will leverage OpConnect’s charging systems across its storage, hub and prep locations to maintain EV battery health, ensuring customers receive their vehicles fully charged and ready to drive.

According to Goldman Sachs Research, EVs will make up about half of new car sales worldwide by 2035. Further, the firm predicts EV sales will soar to about 73 million units in 2040, up from around 2 million in 2020. As EV prices continue to drop and consumer demand rises, the need for transporting EVs will be even greater.

“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. “Partnering with OpConnect is not just an investment into our infrastructure but it’s an investment into our customers and their rising needs for EV charging capabilities.”

“As EV adoption and subsequent ownership 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.”

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