Inaugurated in Paris the first ‘Volta Trucks Hub’, technical centre that will give assistance to the Volta Zero electric trucks.
The important milestone confirms the first location in Paris, where vehicles will be serviced, maintained and start customer evaluation in mid-2022, while the confirmation of the London Hub location due shortly.
The ‘Volta Trucks Hub, Paris’ will operate eight workshop bays for the routine servicing of vehicles, including the new and innovative equipment needed to keep full-electric commercial vehicles well maintained, to minimise down-time. The Hub will also host admin offices, a Volta Trucks Academy training centre and Call Centre that will provide the interface between customers and the company’s team of technical and commercial experts, 24/7/365.
The first ‘Volta Trucks Hub, Paris’ is in Bonneuil-sur-Marne, to the south-east of Paris, and will serve the important logistics centres of Rungis, Orly, Créteil and Bonneuil where the first Volta Trucks’ customers already have distribution warehouses. The facility has easy access to the A86 Périphérique and is also near the extension of the N406 road towards the Haropa port that provides river and train terminals for several potential customers. The facility offers 2,100m2 on a 5,000m2 plot and will serve more than 600 trucks per year.
The first ‘Volta Trucks Hub, Paris’ is part of a wider representation strategy that will see a vehicle service offering across all initial launch locations of Paris, London, Madrid, Milan, the Rhine-Ruhr region of Germany, and the Randstad region of the Netherlands. The first Hub in Paris will cover the south of the city, with an additional Hub covering the main logistics and distribution centres in the north of Paris to be confirmed soon. The Volta Trucks site strategy covers large metropolitan areas next to logistics centres but is also designed to anticipate the imminent shift towards multi-modal transport including rivers and train, not just focused on the continental long distance transport network.
The network of ‘Volta Trucks Hubs’ will be a critical enabler of the company’s innovative Truck as a Service offer, that sets out to revolutionise the finance and servicing of commercial vehicle fleets.
