Capper Trading finds right ingredients with Effitires14 December 2016

Fuel and bulk animal feed distributor Capper Trading has signed up its entire fleet to Effitires, the tyre management programme from Michelin Solutions, saying the three-year deal allows it focus on growing its business.

The contract covers 36 DAF and Volvo tractors and rigid trucks, plus a mix of 44 tanker, flatbed, curtainside and tipper trailers – all of which operate from Capper’s headquarters in Dungannon, County Tyrone.

Capper’s managing director Philip Hill says: “Our fleet has to handle diverse terrain on a day-to-day basis, and we needed a supplier that could offer both premium tyres capable of meeting this challenge, and a structured, predictable, cost-efficient approach to commercial vehicle tyre management. We found both in Effitires.

Business growth, he adds, has put pressure on in-house workshops. “Now that Michelin Solutions handles all our tyre-related concerns, our engineers can instead focus on maintaining our fleet and ensuring maximum uptime for our customers – and the management team has the freedom to focus on growing our core businesses.”

Local service provider A One Tyres of Dromore will be responsible for supporting the fleet’s tyre requirements.

Capper’s fleet will fit Michelin X MultiWay 3D XDE drive and XZE all-position tyres under the agreement.

Effitires also gives Capper Trading a dedicated team of auditors, technicians and business support personnel, as well as a predictable tyre budget linked to fleet activity.
