Automotive logistics services provider MetroGistics is rebranding.
The company, which has acquired McNutt, AmeriFleet and Metro Title Services over the past four years, is now known as ACERTUS.
In a news release, MetroGistics said its rebranding to ACERTUS “reflects the companies’ coming together to form a one-stop shop offering world-class vehicle lifecycle solutions to all its combined customers including OEM’s, dealers and fleet management companies.”
The brand transition will occur over the next few months; until then, each company will keep its existing processes and information.
ACERTUS headquarters will be in St. Louis, with additional facilities in Alpharetta, Ga., and Lenexa, Kan.
“As ACERTUS, we will now be able to offer more services to help our customers while also maintaining the same high level of extraordinary commitment in all we do,” company co-founder and chief executive William Billiter said in a news release. “Without having to call multiple vendors, you will be able to arrange seamless end-to-end services with a single phone call or click of a mouse.”
MetroGistics launched as a vehicle transport company eight years ago and has since made a series of acquisitions in that space and beyond. That includes the 2014 purchase of logistics provider McNutt Automotive Logistics, the 2016 purchase of fleet logistics/services company AmeriFleet and last year’s acquisition of Metro Title Services, a provider of vehicle title and registration services.
“Our individual operations have already realized efficiencies and adopted best practices that will maintain our reputation as a technological leader focused on providing clients with market-leading solutions,” MetroGistics co-founder and chief strategy officer Scott Naz said in a news release.
“Going forward, we remain focused on innovation and technology to further integrate and optimize our services,” Naz said.
The new entity will offer and expand upon the following services: transportation services, fleet logistics/management, technology solutions, title and registration, compliance and care services, vehicle storage and final-mile delivery solutions.
