US-based finished vehicle logistics provider MetroGistics has reorganised its business and that of its partner companies – Amerifleet, Metro Title Services and McNutt – under one company and will now be known as Acertus.
The company has its headquarters in St Louis, Missouri, and will maintain facilities in Alpharetta, Georgia, and Lenexa, Kansas.
“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,” said William Billiter (pictured), MetroGistics’ co-founder and CEO. “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.”
Currently the company provides transport services, including haulage and driveaway, as well as fleet logistics and management. It also provides registration, compliance and care services, among others. It has more than 60 vehicle storage locations across North America and provides final-mile delivery of vehicles.
The company said it would be expanding on those offerings.
“Going forward, we remain focused on innovation and technology to further integrate and optimise our services,” said Scott Naz, co-founder and managing partner of MetroGistics.
MetroGistics was set up in 2010 and took over McNutt Automotive Logistics in 2015 to expand its offering beyond those of a non-asset-based third-party logistics (3PL) provider.
The company was bought by private equity firm Tailwind Capital toward the end of 2016 and the following year it bought fleet logistics services provider Amerifleet. Then, in December 2017, it bought Metro Title Services, which provides vehicle title, registrations and associated compliance services.
“The complementary nature of our service capabilities creates the platform for delivering a market-leading suite of services for the commercial fleet, OEM, dealer and rental-car markets, as well as local DMVs [car registration agencies],” stated John Norris, executive vice-president, client services.
