Tires are an important parameter to reduce operational costs in your fleet, although tires itself just make 5% of the total fleet costs.

Tire Management Strategies
We see three main different tire management strategies in the industry.
Tire only
You purchase solely tires and handle the tire service apart. You are only interested to get a cheap tire price, because most of the times you do the tire service internally. You pay per tire.
Service Contract
You purchase tire + service toghether and outsorced the tire management partly. You want to know what you need to pay for a tire or service and have the flexibility to decide if you really want to take this rate. In addition, you need a tire service network, which is located where you operate to keep the uptime of your vehicles high. You pay per needed tire or service the fixed rate.
Cost per Kilometre contract
You purchase solely tires and handle the tire service apart. You are only interested to get a cheap tire price, because most of the times you do the tire service internally. You pay per tire.

We are convinced that “Cost per Kilometer” contracts are often the best way of doing tire management:

Best “Total Costs of Ownership”, if mission profile of the fleet was analysed correctly!
We have the target to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership for fleets, especially with the help of “Cost per Kilometre” contracts. Today the contracts are optimized in favor of the vendor, who carriers the financial risk. This leads to the fact that many fleets with such contracts are driving mileage optimized tires, which have a weaker fuel efficiency performance or lower rolling resistance performance and therefore not the optimal TCO for a fleet. Our methods allows us to give you not just optimization suggestions, which are 100% based on facts, but also create the transparency of prices in such contracts, which do not exist today. We check all prices of vendors in our data base, match them with your needs and provide a price overview focusing on your total cost of ownership.
