The AD HGV network - the leading network in the independent distribution of HGV parts and services in France - will be present at the Solutrans road haulage and urban transport solutions show which will be held in Lyon from 29 November to 3 December 2011. This show will offer the Autodistribution Group the opportunity to highlight its increasing commitment to HGV maintenance and repair professionals.
The AD HGV network - the leader on the independent HGV repairs market
With 170 service centres throughout France, AD HGV is a multi-brand and multi-trade network dealing with parts distribution, vehicle maintenance and repairs (traction units and trailers) and services linked to regulated activities. In light of the challenges on the different markets and the evolution of regulated activities, the AD HGV network provides professionals operating in the sector with increasingly efficient solutions. This is reflected in the extension of services relating to the maintenance and repair of traction units, the development of regulated activities such as alcohol ignition locks* or COFRAC 2013 accreditation for digital tachographs. This year, continuing the same rationale, AD HGV launched the Qualicert services certification procedure to ensure that its services are harmonised across all its dedicated sites. This is a first step which bears witness to the increasing performance of the network which has consolidated its position as the leader in the field of independent HGV repairs and the first to receive the Qualicert certification. The AD HGV network can therefore boast real expertise in the heavy goods vehicle sector and a service quality acknowledged by local customers and key accounts alike.
Calling on the considerable expertise of the Autodistribution Group, the AD HGV network - partner of the major equipment manufacturers in the trade - offers the most comprehensive and multi-brand product range on the market, stocking more than 50,000 references in centralised hubs. This range is complemented by the Group's own brands - ISOTECH and DIGIPARTS - which offer the perfect solution in the search for the best value-for-money.
The strength of a network
The operatives in the AD HGV network are regularly trained in the development of products and new technologies. It boasts efficient tools including the Truckissimo.com web portal which is the leading multi-brand HGV maintenance and repair portal, multi-brand diagnostic tools and a technical hotline. In addition to these resources, it also enjoys HGV expertise and service quality recognised by all its customers, both at local and national key account level. In order to ensure a high level of customer satisfaction, the AD HGV network has endeavoured to develop a wide range of tools and solutions used to aid the repair process, such as the multi-brand technical hotline for the parts complementing the offering. These tools and solutions reflect the desire of the Autodistribution Group to provide HGV maintenance and repair professionals with high added value services with a view to maintaining and developing the competence of the repair shops within the AD HGV network.
As Anne Léger, Director of the AD HGV Network Development stresses, "AD HGV is a dynamic network which has broken new ground in 2011. Focusing on the Qualicert services certification procedure, it has made every effort to guarantee professionals the same commitments and the same values throughout France."
All of the teams in the AD HGV network will be on hand to welcome customers and prospects and to introduce them to the full range of services on offer.
