The ambition of Europorte Services is to answer the triple customer’s objective: safety, competitiveness and quality of service.

For more than 5 years, Europorte Services embarked on a new avenue of development by launching its 1st level maintenance offering on the wagons of its customers in order to guarantee a high level of reliability and availibility of the rolling stock. This maintenance includes small repairs in situ to avoid immobilising or moving the rolling stock to some often distant workshops. This service carried out directly on site includes:

  • Maintenance operations on a preventive or corrective level for wagons on sites: troubleshooting, replacing equipment such as brake shoe blocks, lubricating buffers and coupling equipment, fastening safety device elements, etc

  • Technical visits and controls on wagons

  • Maintenance, troubleshooting and repair works on shunters on sites and in workshops

  • Renovation of shunters

  • Re-railing of derailed trains (locomoties, shunters and wagons)

  • Rental and sale of traction units and spare parts.

Our technicians, based locally in most of France regions, can intervene directly on your site with their workshop van and carry out maintenance operations, thus reducing:

  • Downtime immobilisation of wagons
  • Rail movement costs for wagons in maintenance
  • Maintenance operation time
  • Organisational constraints

Our technicians have all the safety certifications needed to intervene on industrial sites and on the national railway. All maintenance operations are carried out according to the CUU (utilisation and maintenance standards for wagons). Europorte Services works for the main company who lease wagons: VTG, Ermewa, Millet, Nacco, Touax,…
