Pentalver operates more than 350 tractor units and 900 trailers, all of which are fitted on a combination of Bridgestone’s Ecopia H002 tyres and Bandag retread products.
The operator also cites benefits from Bridgestone’s Webfleet telematics system and from its partner network for breakdown support and roadside assistance, and tyre management through the Total Tyre Care package.
The 12-year partnership, says Pentalver, is delivering environmental benefits, improved road handling, reduced downtime and fuel savings.
“Bridgestone is a leading global tyre manufacturer and the technology at their disposal is as good, if not better, than anything I have ever come across,” says David Baldwin, Pentalver’s fleet manager (pictured, left, with Paul Sheehan, Bridgestone’s commercial operations manager).
“We have made the right choice in supplier, both from a technical and people point of view, as we’re benefiting from significant cost savings and are being treated as a unique business with bespoke needs by a talented team of professionals, who are experts in their field.”
