LeasePlan ready for tyre labelling
As a key partner of the technology leaders in the tyre industry, LeasePlan Corporation N.V. has announced its readiness to comply with the latest EU legislation regarding tyre labelling. As people must surely be aware by now, the new labels will rate fuel-efficiency, wet grip performance, and the exterior rolling noise of tyres.
The new law officially takes effect on 1 November 2012, with a prior transition period for tyre manufacturers, who must ensure that every new tyre produced after 1 July 2012 uses the new labels.
LeasePlan fully supports this new legislation, as it provides end users with clear and important information about their purchase. As a leading fleet management company, LeasePlan maintains an in-depth business dialogue with the world’s largest tyre manufacturers, and says that it will continue working with them to ensure that customers receive complete information and best-in-class products, and that all EU guidelines are met.
Said Wolfgang E. Reinhold, Senior Vice President Car Remarketing and Operations at LeasePlan: “As an industry leader in fleet and vehicle management, LeasePlan takes its sustainability and safety responsibilities very seriously, and we work with global tyre technology leaders to ensure maximum fuel efficiency and safety for our customers around the world as part of our service offering to our customers.”.
