Our 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 your vehicles:
- Rolling chassis
- Tyres, wheels
Our workshop is part of our range of services for you and it includes all logistical challenges.
Since the changes and adjustments in the craft sector, it still applies that a vehicle workshop must be run by a master mechanic. This results from the high technical requirements of modern vehicles, whose maintenance and repair need technical knowledge. There are additional specifications which must be observed as regards the maintenance of commercial vehicles, since load transport has an expanded range of content. Part of this is the special workshop infrastructure. We offer you the know-how to keep your vehicle operable and technically up-to-date.
