Yorkshire-based haulage firm Bedfords Transport has revealed that the number of breakdowns related to tyres has fallen drastically since adopting a new policy with ATS Euromaster.
The agreement, which was signed in December last year, saw the compound and MOT check provider agree to supply remould and Pirelli tyres across the firm's fleet of 84 trucks and 135 trailers.
Seven months on from the start of the deal and Bedfords Transport is already enjoying the benefits with the company revealing a significant drop in compound-related stops.
According to statistics provided by the firm, the average number of roadside tyre failures has slipped to 3.4 per month compared with the 6.4 per month witnessed over the same period of 2011.
Commenting on the figures, Bedfords Transport purchasing consultant Lee Nichols expressed his delight at the news.
"We’ve always been good at managing our tyres, but these results show what can be achieved by closer partnership working with suppliers," he said.
"We’re recording tangible improvements in tyre performance every month, which is cutting our running costs and directly enhancing the service we deliver for customers."
