Explanation:
If I've got the wrong context then I am talking nonsense. As in my other answer on this piece of text, I have guessed that this is to do with tractors linking up with trailers, where "accrochage" refers to the tractor reversing back and linking up with its trailor.

Maybe a little more context could have helped...
