Truck Tyre Solutions & Continental Tyres Secure Deal With Leading Steel Haulier

Truck Tyre Solutions Hingley TransportPress release care of Continental Tyres:

“West Midlands tyre dealer Truck Tyre Solutions (TTS) has won a contract with one of the UK’s leading steel hauliers to supply Continental tyres as their exclusive tyre fitment.

 

Brierley Hill based A Hingley Transport, which marks its 45th anniversary this year, runs a fleet of 80 top-weight tractor units and 180 trailers and specialises in the movement of steel as well as carrying out general haulage throughout the UK. The company is part of the AH Group, which also refurbishes trailers and builds new trailers, all of which will be fitted with Continental tyres as original equipment.

 

Key objectives on tyres for the family-run firm are safety and maximum tyre life leading to low pence per kilometre costs. Under the contract every truck and trailer in the Hingley fleet is now having its tyres inspected monthly by technicians from TTS. As they complete each inspection they enter their findings directly into the TTS database using a hand-held portable PC from TreadTracker.

 

As well as being alerted by TTS of any immediate repair work that may be necessary, the system allows Hingleys to check the database at any time using password protected access enabling them to obtain a wide range of up-to-date information on the condition of tyres on their vehicles.

 

Carl Falconer, a director of TTS, says: “We’re delighted to be providing Hingleys with such a comprehensive tyre management service that is meeting their key objectives.

 

“Ensuring that tyres are kept in tip-top condition is not only a safety issue but it brings measurable cost savings by improving fuel efficiency and enabling tyres to have a subsequent life by regrooving and retreading under the  ContiLifeCycle system.

 

“Where new tyres are concerned we are able to offer expert advice on which Continental tyres are best suited to different applications, such as stop-start urban delivery work or long distance motorway running. And we can specify tyres from the Continental range for steer axles or drive axles and for off-road or winter conditions.”

 

Dave Smith of Hingley Transport said: “Having TTS as our tyre partner has given us the confidence that where tyres are concerned we are in good hands and we can focus on our core business of meeting the needs of our customers. Their professional approach, along with the great value for money that Continental tyres represent and the use of the TreadTracker technology, means that we know exactly where we stand in regard to our tyres at all times and should also lead to significant savings on our annual tyre bill.”

 

Truck Tyre Solutions operates from locations in Oldbury and Pershore, both strategically placed to give fast access to the motorway network throughout the West Midlands. The company runs a fleet of full-equipped vans to carry out roadside tyre changes and operates a 24 hour call-out service.”

Have A Great Christmas And New Year

 

All the staff at Truck Tyre Solutions would like to wish our customers, suppliers and partners a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year for 2013.

As the areas number one Truck Tyre service provider we will still be available for emergency call outs over the festive period 24 hours a day.
