This latest investment will allow ACERTUS to extend its product offerings with salvage and repossession and deliver products and services to additional VIN types, including motorsports and RVs.

ACERTUS announced in a press release its strategic acquisition of RCG Logistics, a transportation and remarketing provider. This latest investment will allow ACERTUS to extend its product offerings with salvage and repossession and deliver world-class products and services to additional VIN types, including motorsports, RVs and other oversized vehicles, regardless of condition, the release stated.

The acquisition advances ACERTUS’ targeted growth strategy, building on a series of successful past acquisitions and underscoring the company’s commitment to being the largest full-scale, auto logistics platform designed to move, store, recondition, title and register finished vehicles throughout their lifecycle.

“At ACERTUS, we are hyper-focused on serving the needs of our customers and delivering a full suite of vehicle logistics services through strategic partnerships and investments,” said Trent Broberg, CEO of ACERTUS. “RCG shares our commitment to customers and the logistics industry, demonstrated by their consistent track record of innovation, performance excellence, and profitable growth. We are excited to welcome the RCG team into our organization. By blending our services, we know we will become an even stronger company together.”

“It has always been our dream to become the leading complete logistics solution for the automotive and powersport industries. By joining the ACERTUS family, we will be able to expand our suite of services and continue to go above and beyond for our customers,” said Vick Kuzmenko, co-founder and CEO of RCG Logistics. “The platform will provide increased operational support, improved technology and a stronger infrastructure to deliver a world-class customer experience. Our customers and vendors will continue to receive the same exceptional attention from our dedicated professionals while getting the advantage of ACERTUS’ suite of services, including storage, title, registration and much more.”

The acquisition will integrate RCG Logistics under the ACERTUS brand and is effective immediately. This is the fourth transaction for ACERTUS whose parent company MetroGistics previously acquired MetroTitle, Amerifleet and McNutt.

Autosled Announces Multiple Product Upgrades

Improved shipment visibility and transporter payment system among updates affecting retail automotive dealers looking to ship cars and trucks.

Autosled announced that it has released multiple product improvements for its nationwide vehicle transport and logistics platform. As a disruptor in the mobility and digital logistics space with a proven track record of excellence, Autosled is constantly improving upon its existing products and infrastructure.

The most recent product rollouts improve functionality for transporter teams within the Autosled network. Providing additional visibility into the available loads along each driver’s individual route saves time while also providing improved service to dealerships needing to move vehicles faster. In addition, Autosled’s new one-click reassignment function saves both dispatchers and drivers significant time, especially when a change needs to be made while a vehicle is en route. Large transport companies with multiple drivers will greatly benefit from these process improvements. Autosled’s mobile application, iOS version 3.1.1, now includes a popup alert informing the driver if the load requires an enclosed trailer, contains any inoperable vehicles, or necessitates special instructions required by the shipper. This has been especially helpful as Autosled increases its coverage at ports and railyards nationwide. These considerations provide that only drivers who can meet the specifications drive to pick up these vehicles- cutting down on pickup cancellations and wasted time.
