Goodyear to Supply YRC Regional Transportation Trucks
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company will manage a supply arrangement with YRC Worldwide Inc, providing commercial tyres to some of its operating companies within YRC Regional Transportation.
Under the arrangement, Goodyear will supply replacement and retread truck tyres and tyre services in North America for several of the operating companies through 2008. YRC Worldwide was formerly known as Yellow Roadway Corporation.
Steve McClellan, Goodyear vice president of commercial tyre systems, said: “Our long-term relationship with Yellow Roadway and our ability to offer a comprehensive service package of original equipment, replacement and retreaded tyres as well as value-added services are key to this new agreement. We’re obviously excited to be working with YRC Regional Transportation companies.”
“We believe that by using our national network of commercial tyre centres, YRC Regional Transportation will improve its efficiency in maintaining its fleet. Our collection of fleet management tools puts YRC Regional Transportation in complete control,” McClellan said.
Goodyear, the world’s largest tyre company, offers complete products and services to the trucking industry, including a full range of original equipment and replacement tyres. In addition, the company’s cradle-to-grave tyre and service network includes retreading, tyre management tools and business solutions for tomorrow’s trucking fleets.
