The price-per-kilometre deal covers the operator’s 363-strong fleet of DAF trucks, in operation around the clock from its 14 depots nationwide.
Ian Barclay, group operations director at Aspray24, says that Michelin “has taken the time to understand the ‘ins and outs’ of our business, and supplies a tyre management package perfectly tailored to our needs as a result”.
Much of the firm’s work involves delivering door locks, nuts, bolts and fasteners, often to building sites, where loose surfaces and construction waste are a constant concern.
Barclay adds: “We’ve always known Michelin tyres are the premium product, and offer great value over time – especially when you’re running such a busy fleet as ours.
“We deliver 14,000 consignments every day, and it’s testament to our tyres’ abilities that in the five-plus years we’ve been fitting Michelin, we haven’t suffered a single tyre failure on the road that wasn’t caused by an external factor. Plus we’ve gained increased control and clarity on our tyre budget through the Effitires programme.”
ATS Euromaster will continue to fit Michelin X MultiWay 3D XDE and XZE tyres to the fleet.
Aspray24’s trailers are fitted with X Multi T tyres, while its Mercedes-Benz Sprinters are fitted with Agilis + van tyres.
