English term or phrase: road service
A part of a stage specification:

"Road Service:
Electrics jump: 13(400A) company boxes
Akemi.T
Local time: 16:43
German translation:Strassendienst
Explanation:
It is really not quite clear what is meant by the expression in the above (stage ?) context. An outright translation, though ,would be Strassendienst or Strassenservice.
In such cases of doubts about the true meaning of a given expression, the best approach is to provide an ipsis litteris translation.
