ridgestone’s innovative tyre support is a total success. As the largest manufacturer of tyres and rubber products worldwide, Bridgestone prides itself on leading the way in technologically innovative goods.
Developing groundbreaking solutions - befitting of the Bridgestone name - can be seen in the commercial industry in particular, with its tyre pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) and its industry-leading Retorque App just two of many examples.
The Retorque App has been developed after a painstaking information gathering exercise with all bus, truck and trailer original equipment manufacturers. It offers the correct torque settings on all vehicles, free of charge, at the swipe of a mobile phone or tablet.
But if there is one example of advanced tyre support that genuinely leads the way, then Bridgestone need look no further than its Total Tyre Care package for commercial fleet operators.
Total Tyre Care allows businesses to keep tight control over their tyre-related costs courtesy of a hat-trick of services.
It has been tailored to meet the needs of every commercial fleet operator and is quite unlike anything else on the market.
Total Tyre Care is built around the following three components:
● Total Tyre Life - Premium new tyres & retreads
● Total Tyre Services - Professional tyre maintenance and assistance throughout Europe
● Total Tyre Systems - Inspection tools, customised reports and innovative technologies
And in the ultimate endorsement for Bridgestone’s all-encompassing offering, more and more fleet operators are opting for the brand over its competitors, with a number of hugely significant partnerships now being revealed in recent months, including First Group, Stagecoach, Ocado and Collease.
