A Hingley Transport turns to TTS and Continental for tyres 13 February 2013

West Midlands tyre dealer Truck Tyre Solutions (TTS) has won a contract with steel haulier A Hingley Transport to supply Continental tyres as its exclusive tyre fitment.

The Brierley Hill-based haulier, which runs a fleet of 80 top-weight tractor units and 180 trailers, specialises in the movement of steel and is part of the AH Group, which also refurbishes trailers and builds new trailers – all of which will now be fitted with Continental tyres as original equipment.

Dave Smith of Hingley Transport explains that, under the new contract, every truck and trailer now has TTS's tyres inspected monthly by its technicians. As they complete each inspection, they enter findings into the TTS database, using a hand-held portable PC from TreadTracker.

As well as being alerted by TTS of any immediate repair work, the system allows Hingley to check the database at any time to obtain up-to-date information on the condition of tyres throughout its fleet.

"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," states Smith.

"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."

"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," states TTS director Carl Falconer.

"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," he continues.

"And we can specify tyres from the Continental range for steer axles or drive axles and for off-road or winter conditions."
