Logistics company, Hoyer Group has chosen Goodyear as its new tyre and service provider.
Hoyer will now fit its 400 units and 780 trailers in the UK as well as another 4,000 trucks and trailers across Europe with KMax, FuelMax and Goodyear retreaded products.
The deal is a result of a pan-European bidding process.
Allan Davison, operations director at Hoyer Petrolog, said: “Goodyear has built a reputation for improving the efficiency of fleets and we are pleased to award them our business.
“The nature of our operation sees us transport hazardous materials day-in-day-out: therefore we need a product that is safe and reliable while delivering efficiency savings.
“We found this, tried and tested, in Goodyear's KMax tyre.”
Hoyer will also take advantage of Goodyear´s TruckForce tyre management programme, roadside assistance and FleetOnlineSolutions.
Davison said: “TruckForce are experts in their field.
“They catch issues, take preventative measures and solve problems to keep downtime to a minimum.
“The TruckForce infrastructure enables us to get the optimum performance and maximum life out of our tyres.
“When you put this all together this package will increase our efficiency as well as reducing our carbon footprint.”
Marc Preedy, commercial director at Goodyear, said: “This is another proud moment for Goodyear which continues the substantial growth we have seen in our business over the last 18 months.
“The new partnership with the Hoyer Group shows that our integrated package offers real tangible value to our customers.”
