During the Solutrans show in November 2021, the Ford Trucks France team benefited from numerous contacts used to build a solid structure.
Taking advantage of event participation in the Truck Grand Prix on the Castellet circuit, on April 23 and 24, F-Trucks France is organizing its first network convention “This is a unique opportunity to send a strong message, to move forward with our projects for the coming months, and for the members of our network to get to know each other better so that everyone can contribute their ideas and that we can continue our constructive exchanges” explains Bruno Arabian, Managing Director of F-Trucks France, who has decided to bring together the first partners of the manufacturers in the exceptional setting of the first Truck Grand Prix of the year 2022.
The professionals who defend the brand will not miss the appointment “We are expecting around 60 of our partners and we are looking forward to welcoming them. We already know each other, but within the framework of the Castellet circuit, the discussions will also allow us to deepen all the subjects around the market, the products and the services. We will gain in efficiency in future exchanges. » welcomes Christophe Bastenaire, Sales and Network Director F-Trucks France who is also convinced that the presence of the F-MAX on display will be an opportunity to meet spectators who are all transport professionals.
During this event, the F-MAX, the star tractor of the Ford Trucks range, takes to the track. Throughout the weekend, it will be the pace-truck, that is to say the safety truck which is ahead of the pack of competition trucks in order to moderate the enthusiasm of the drivers released after the warm-up lap. “Our F-MAX will be an integral part of the show during parades of decorated trucks as part of the Truck Show. These are privileged moments allowing the public to admire exceptional decorations. Thus, the pace-truck F-MAX will open the track of each parade throughout the weekend” explains Jean-Philippe Terrillon, Marketing and Product Director of F-Trucks France.
Ford trucks are also waiting for the public at the Salon Pro, a professional exhibition in the heart of the paddocks open to manufacturers, bodybuilders and equipment manufacturers. This is where transporters, drivers and all transport professionals, their families and friends will have the opportunity to discover the F-MAX. www.fordtrucks.com.tr/en/
On the national territory and overseas, the Ford Trucks network is developing. The first vehicles have already been delivered to customers. After the first 50 vehicles registered on the French market, the following deliveries are scheduled and the presence on the Castellet circuit will increase this momentum. It should be noted that the fifty hauliers who had the opportunity to discover the new F-MAX tractor in real operating conditions, with more than 150,000 km covered, are delighted. Then, it made it possible to confirm, half the time, immediate orders, while very large fleets show interest.
Spare parts logistics and network capacity to meet maintenance needs are also in place “Our central spare parts stock is in place, our dealership workshops are equipped with diagnostic tools and the technical training program is underway. France being a transit country, 24/7 assistance is in place and the French network of Ford Trucks already intervenes regularly on trucks from other European countries” says Guy Allard, Parts and Services Director of F-Trucks France.
Bruno Arabian, Managing Director of F-Trucks France, is pleased with the results already obtained “Ford Trucks France is continuing its development with a team that now covers all of an importer’s trades. By organizing this convention on the Castellet circuit, from April 22 to 24, we are getting closer to the world of road transport and this will confirm the enthusiasm of our first distributors who talk about it to their colleagues and friends, advising them to enter the network. They will therefore continue this conversation in an exceptional setting and universe.” confirms Bruno Arabian who wants a very collaborative approach with the members of the Ford Trucks network in order to share ideas and thus continue to build Ford Trucks’ policy on the French market.
Remember that the three shareholders of F-Trucks France participate in the establishment of the Ford Trucks distribution and maintenance network through concession contracts for new establishments dedicated to this activity in their regions of origin (Brittany, Provence and Burgundy). Remember that this creation is at the initiative of the DMD, Maurin and Amplitude Groups.
