As a specialised transport operator, our business requires the use of increasingly complex technical resources.

The fleet now has 1,800 registrations, all of which, with a few exceptions, are owned. Maintaining this fleet is therefore at the heart of our concerns, so that we can keep it in perfect working order and react quickly in the event of a breakdown to ensure continuity of service for our customers.

BRUN INVEST has chosen to have integrated workshops in most of its transport subsidiaries. This is because we want to :

  • control maintenance costs,
  • Define preventive maintenance schedules based on product campaigns (small LPG and fuel oil rigids are serviced in the summer so that they are ready for the winter).
  • Carry out maintenance prior to periodic inspections.
  • Technological independence on specific equipment

Each workshop has a manager and workshop technicians:

Their tasks are as follows:

  • Carry out systematic maintenance operations
  • Carry out routine repairs in accordance with a repair order
  • Carry out electrical and mechanical diagnostics
  • Preparing for periodic inspections
  • Manage purchase orders and repair orders for invoicing and administrative follow-up
  • Applying maintenance instructions

More specifically, they are responsible for :

  • Station operations (emptying, filter levels)
  • Troubleshooting
  • Applying control and safety instructions
  • Carrying out inspection visits and associated reports
  • Welding, production of parts and tools

Our workshops have evolved considerably in recent years, and our mechanics undergo a wide range of training courses.

  • As a vehicle manufacturer, we are approved by them and can manage problems directly linked to the mechanics, as well as technological problems via communication software with the machines.
  • Tyre manufacturer, for tyre maintenance
  • Some workshops have additional skills and approvals for the repair of mass and volumetric meters.

Like all workstations at Brun, these are taken into account in our QHSSE actions:

  • With the installation of secure pits
  • With waste sorting
  • Wearing PPE for certain repairs
  • Compliance with specific procedures for each regulated operation

We tend to forget that the workshops are an essential link in the logistics chain (driver; operations; management; monitors; management services), and their role is to ensure the availability of means of transport.

You will also receive a questionnaire on the workshops and maintenance of your fleets.
