Workshop: Own truck workshop

Maintaining an own vehicle fleet is worthwhile from a certain size onwards, because then the savings in terms of maintenance costs are lower than outsourcing even when having your own vehicle workshop.As a large forwarding company we have our own professional workshop for trucks which primarily carries out maintainance and repair work for our vehicle fleet of about 740 units. Commercial vehicles, in particular, are not only subjected to an above-average demand, but legal requirements such as the German technical inspection TÜV & SP must be carried out more frequently or are only intended for commercial vehicles. In our master workshop for trucks we also do service and repair work for external customers.

Safe on the road

A well-maintained vehicle fleet ensures safety on the road as well as a constant operational readiness. This of course includes the requirements from the statutory inspection periods such as the general and safety inspections, which are mandatory every six months for trucks weighing above 7.5 tonnes and for trailers weighing above 10 tonnes.

Traffic management systems like the speedometer and the trip recorder are equally important. In addition to TüV & SP technical inspections, our truck workshop also carries out the following checks and maintenance work for you vehicles:

  • Undercarriage
  • Chassis
  • Couplings
  • Steering
  • Tyres, wheels
  • Brakes
  • Speedometer

Our workshop is part of our range of services for you and it includes all logistical challenges.

Master's duty

Even after the changes and modifications to the rules for craftsmen, the management of a vehicle workshop still underlies the obligation to be done by a car mechanic master craftsman. This results from the high technical demands and expert technical knowledge needed for modern vehicles, their maintenance and repair.

There are additional requirements for the maintenance of commercial vehicles as truck transport has extended content that has to be observed. Part of this is the special workshop infrastructure. We offer you the know-how as to how to keep you vehicle ready for operation and technically up-to-date.
