Continental Tyres will use its presence at the CV Show 2017 to highlight its operational solutions, designed to help inform fleets, put efficiency and safety first and provide a complete service to complement its comprehensive range of commercial vehicle tyres.
ContiPressureCheck, the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), as a standalone system or with full telematics integration, is further developed this year, with the roll-out of the group’s ContiYardReader TPMS system this summer. The ContiYardReader system will allow fleet managers to monitor tyre pressures automatically for all vehicles in the yard adding further accuracy to fleet maintenance and helping to prevent costly tyre breakdowns.
Continental’s TPMS modular offering is proven to have multiple benefits for fleets, including reduced fuel costs, lower environmental impact and higher safety levels as well as helping to lower the likelihood of tyre blowouts.
The group will also highlight how it is further developing its operator services, including the growth of the highly developed Conti360º Fleet Services network as part of Continental’s ongoing commitment to providing exclusive all-round service to fleets. Services include the ContiFitmentService; ContiFleetCheck; ContiBreakdownService; ContiCasingManagement and ContiFleetReporting.
This national service programme now features over 100 Conti360° Fleet Service network partners across the UK & Ireland with over 400 service points with over 300 REACT trained technicians. The network offers national and regional fleet customers excellent national breakdown coverage and rapid response times averaging less than an hour with flexible packages tailored to the needs of the fleet, including tyre management advice.
Continental now also offer the ability for fleets to manage their materials handling equipment alongside their truck fleets with the Conti Industrial Fleet Services Network. The service is delivered throughout the UK and ROI and includes over 30 certified members for solid tyre fitting and over 100 associated members - through the Conti360° Network - for pneumatic tyre fitting. Industrial partners are equipped with state of the art equipment with over 40 mobile and static solid tyre presses, IMI accredited tyre technicians and the ability to fit solid tyres over 20 inches.
A selection of Continental’s range of commercial vehicle tyres will of course be on show. With industry experts on hand to showcase the complete range of tyres for LGV, HGV and Materials Handling equipment (Truck, Bus, Coach, Van, Specialty). Each Continental tyre has been designed around the application, tailored to meet the growing demands of the commercial vehicle industry. Whether fleets wish to improve mileage performance, increase fuel efficiency or maximise safety and the lifecycle of a tyre, Continental has a solution.
Mat Wilkinson, Commercial Sales and Marketing Director at Continental Tyres said: “Commercial vehicle operators continue to strive towards greater fuel and cost efficiencies and with this in mind Continental has invested in providing not only market leading tyres but a robust range of services and solutions to support our customers throughout their operations.
