New Vacu-Lug tire management contract cuts vehicle downtime

LinkedIn +

The Fred Sherwood Group has reported significant improvements in vehicle downtime since selecting Vacu-Lug to manage its fleet tire requirements.

The contract covers tire supply and management for all the transport companies within The Fred Sherwood Group, including Bulk Freight (Midlands), F Sherwood & Sons (Shepshed), George Varney (Northampton) and KJ Transport (Donington).

“In just four months we have seen improvements in incident response and job turn-around times. And in turn, this has increased fleet mobility,” commented director Justin Sherwood.

Fred Sherwood switched to Vacu-Lug because the company required a comprehensive fleet tire management service that could cover its diverse vehicle range, including bulk tippers, walking floor trailers, general haulage artics and rigid vehicles.

Accordingly, the web-based VMS (Vacu-Lug Management System) provides The Fred Sherwood Group with full, uninterrupted access to all tire-related activities across each of its transport businesses.

The company is also supported by Vacu-Lug’s fleet operations department which provides assistance on all aspects of tire management, from compliancy through to fitment queries.
