Acertus partners with OpConnect to electrify nationwide locations

Acertus said it will leverage OpConnect’s charging systems across its storage, hub and prep locations to maintain customer EV battery health.

Acertus entered a strategic partnership with U.S.-based electric vehicle (EV) charging solution provider, OpConnect, to electrify 41 of its 67 nationwide locations. Acertus said it will leverage OpConnect’s charging systems across its storage, hub and prep locations to maintain customer EV battery health.

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, Acertus said.

“Our customers range from OEMs to fleets, and all have very different needs as they prepare for an influx of electric vehicles in the market,” Trent Broberg, CEO of Acertus, said. “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.”

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.
