Called Goodyear Proactive Solutions, it includes a suite of solutions featuring advanced telematics and predictive analytics technology.
Using intelligent computer algorithms, a wealth of data derived from Goodyear’s commercial tyre and service business, and accurate reporting, the solutions promise fleet operators the ability to identify and resolve tyre-related and potential safety issues before they happen.
“Goodyear Proactive Solutions offers fleet managers a one-stop, user-friendly solution to help reduce their total cost of operations and improve the uptime, efficiency and sustainability of their fleets,” says Michel Rzonzef, VP of commercial business for Goodyear EMEA.
The fleet management solutions have been designed with input from CV fleet operators over the last two years and, says Goodyear, can result in 75% less tyre-related breakdowns, lower operational costs, including 70% less tyre maintenance costs, and an improved carbon footprint thanks to a 10% fuel saving.
The new business offers two groups of services: Proactive Tyre, including tyre pressure, temperature and tread depth monitoring; and Proactive Fleet, with driver behaviour and track & track functionality.
“Our innovative solutions are fully compatible with all commercial truck tyres, allowing every fleet owner the opportunity to benefit from these new connected fleet management solutions,” adds André Weisz, managing director, Goodyear Proactive Solutions.
Goodyear Proactive Solutions is now available in 12 countries, including the UK.
