Michelin solutions’ EFFITIRES™ tyre management
Marshalls, the UK’s leading supplier of hard landscaping products, has signed its 383 road transport assets up to Michelin solutions’ EFFITIRES™ tyre management programme.
The price-per-kilometre deal covers 100 per cent of the company’s mixed fleet of 173 DAF, MAN, Mercedes-Benz, Renault and Volvo tractor units and rigid trucks, plus 210 crane-equipped SDC Trailers.
Marshalls’ Regional Logistics and Fleet Manager Guy Ripley says: “Michelin has been Marshalls’ preferred tyre supplier for many years, and by ‘embedding’ Michelin solutions within our fleet, through the EFFITIRES™ programme, we’ve gained even greater control over our tyre budget.
“We’re especially pleased with the tyre usage and fleet activity reports the programme generates, as we find being able to see the hard data incredibly useful,” Ripley adds; referring to the regular reporting and feedback supplied by Michelin solutions’ team of managers, auditors and technicians.
The company’s fleet operates from 12 depots around the UK, and will continue to fit Michelin X MultiWay 3D XDE drive and XZE all-position tyres – the manufacturer’s latest generation regional tread pattern, which offers excellent mileage performance and fuel efficiency.
