Spanish transport and logistics group Marcotran has signed a FleetFirst agreement with Goodyear for the supply of new and retread tires as well as trans-European full tire management. The decision to sign the deal was based on Marcotran’s successful experience with Goodyear fuel-efficient FuelMax tires and the comprehensive solutions package including FleetOnlineSolutions (FOS) and eJob of FleetFirst.
Goodyear’s internet-based FOS tire management system will be central to the contract, which covers the supply and support of Goodyear FuelMax new and moldcure retread tires to Marcotran’s fleet of 700 trucks and 1,200 trailers. FOS enables Goodyear service providers of the TruckForce network and Marcotran depots the ability to access all essential fleet and contract details on-line and in the local language. This reduces downtime by helping speed up service as well as ensuring simple and accurate invoicing.
The contract mainly centers on Marcotran’s operations in Spain and Poland with the involvement of its other operating bases in Italy, France, Morocco and Russia.
Meanwhile, Cartwright, a UK-based commercial vehicle body and trailer manufacturer has renewed its contract with Goodyear after reports of impressive performance levels from the tire maker’s products and services in the last 12 months.
The family business will now continue with its 100% Goodyear tire policy, fitting both new and retread products. The new two-year deal is the first of its length to be handed to a tire manufacturer by Cartwright.
