Technical Services for 3PL

Southgate Global don’t just supply the operational logistics and fulfilment equipment that you need — we maintain, repair and repurpose it, too.

Warrantied products can be repaired quickly with our Return To Base (RTB) cover, should the need arise of course.

By contracting to our ongoing maintenance, repair and renovation services you can extend equipment life, get a better ROI and protect your CapEx investment.

Our Mobile Repair Service means our skilled technicians work on your site, so you can get repaired equipment straight back to work when we’re done.

Or, if you prefer and you’d find it more convenient (for H&S or space reasons), we can arrange to ship the equipment to one of our conveniently located European clinics where we can service and repair them all at once and return to your site when done.

The Southgate ServAgree app makes it easier than ever to track, manage and monitor your equipment’s maintenance, review planned visits and book future service visits.
