Mobile workshops that can intervene in the secure truck park
Customers in the secure Le Truck Village can now have their tractor and semi-trailer repaired on the French Eurotunnel site, before or after their shuttle crossing through the Channel Tunnel.
A workshop vehicle will be present at Le Truck Village every day to carry out repairs and maintenance operations. Mobile maintenance units are equipped with all the necessary tools to intervene independently on customer fleets: impact wrenches, compressors, battery chargers, workbenches, heat guns, etc…
This new service has been set up in partnership with TIP Trailer Services, the European leader in semi-trailer rental and maintenance.
“Our mobile maintenance units allow us to perform both preventive and general mechanical maintenance as well as “small” bodywork work” repairs, said Frederic Notte, Vice-President of TIP for Southern Europe. “Our experienced technicians have the skills and tools necessary for all diagnostics”.
Christian Dufermont, Freight Commercial Director of Eurotunnel, said: “These new services for our freight customers demonstrate our desire to increase our customer satisfaction, while allowing them to cross the Channel with their goods as securely as possible
