Hoyer switches to Goodyear

Hoyer has chosen Goodyear as its new tyre and service provider following a competitive pan-European bidding process.

Following re-tendering their business to four premium manufacturers, Goodyear was selected after meeting Hoyer’s safety service and efficiency requirements. As a result the logistics provider will move away from its previous premium manufacturer, Michelin after 18 years.

Hoyer will now fit its 400 units and 780 trailers in the UK as well as another 4,000 trucks and trailers across Europe with KMax, FuelMax and Goodyear retreaded products.

“Goodyear has built a reputation for improving the efficiency of fleets and we are pleased to award them our business,” said Allan Davison, operations director of Hoyer Petrolog.

“The nature of our operation sees us transport hazardous materials day-in-day-out, therefore we need a product that is safe and reliable while delivering efficiency savings. We found this, tried and tested, in Goodyear’s KMax tyre.”

The Hoyer Group will also take advantage of Goodyear´s TruckForce tyre management programme, roadside assistance and FleetOnlineSolutions.

Allan Davison continues: “TruckForce are experts in their field. They catch issues, take preventative measures and solve problems to keep downtime to a minimum. The TruckForce infrastructure enables us to get the optimum performance and maximum life out of our tyres. When you put this all together this package will increase our efficiency as well as reducing our carbon footprint.”

Marc Preedy, Goodyear commercial director said: “This is another proud moment for Goodyear which continues the substantial growth we have seen in our business over the last 18 months. The new partnership with the Hoyer Group shows that our integrated package offers real tangible value to our customers.”
