TNT Post UK opens Vehicle Maintenance Unit

TNT Post UK has opened a Vehicle Maintenance Unit (VMU) at its 11,000 m2 depot in Rugby in the UK for maintenance and repair of its trailer fleet.

The new facility allows TNT Post UK to carry out its own maintenance and repairs to its 150-strong trailer fleet as well as the mandatory inspections that vehicles undergo every ten weeks. Its four vehicle bays offer enough capacity to service the trucks (over 3.5 tonnes) of other local businesses in addition to its own fleet, thus lowering maintenance costs and generating new income. The unit provides new jobs for workers who were previously employed by the local council.
