ATS Euromaster has helped Liverpool-based B&M reduce its commercial vehicle tyre spend by 30 per cent, only three months after taking over the account.
Before securing the new deal, ATS Euromaster completed a full tyre audit of B&M’s fleet using its new electronic inspection tool, FleetSure. This allowed it to collect precise data on the condition of B&M’s tyres, which was analysed and used to identify the changes required to improve tyre performance and longevity.
As a direct result of the audit, ATS Euromaster has implemented a new replacement policy which sees Michelin X MultiWay 3D tyres fitted to B&M’s own-account fleet of 160 Scania tractor units. Taurus tyres, a brand sold exclusively by ATS Euromaster centres, are being fitted to its 265 trailers.
ATS Euromaster is also expertly managing B&M’s tyres with two dedicated technicians from its local centre on site daily. They carry out routine service work such as regrooving, twinning, turning tyres on the rim and checking pressures.
Regular inspections also allow tyres to be closely monitored and replaced at the optimal time, ensuring the maximum safe and legal tyre life from every asset. These inspections also support each driver’s own daily walk-around vehicle checks, helping to detect potential service issues before they can result in a roadside failure – helping to minimise fleet downtime and associated costs.
Peter Rewhorn, Head of National Transport at B&M, says: “It was a competitive tender – we invited three companies to pitch for our tyre contract.
