Six fleets sign Bridgestone Truck Point contract extensions
Six companies have signed again with Bridgestone’s Truck Point network. Three companies from the UK – Downton Transport and C&H Hauliers from England, NR Evans from Wales and Yuill & Dodds from Scotland – have chosen to give Bridgestone their fleet servicing contracts, while Truck Point consolidated its position in the Republic of Ireland with two renewed contracts from National Truck Rentals in Dublin and Tops Oils in Cork.
Andy Mathias, UK TBR product & marketing manager, at Bridgestone UK, said: “This group of fleet re-signs highlights the strengths of Truck Point and the day-to-day benefits that the system provides. As we know, business retention in the current climate is difficult, so these extensions serve to show the quality of the Bridgestone products and service. We believe Truck Point to be the best fleet solution currently on offer and these contract re-signs illustrate that.”
John Downton, operations director of CM Downton said: “Managing tyre costs through open book electronic reporting and utilising every millimeter of rubber whilst protecting the tyre casing is imperative to us – particularly with our rapidly expanding fleet portfolio and new contracts. Bridgestone have developed their tyre management solution to meet our needs over the previous years, and we are looking forward to working closely with them and their Truck Point network over the coming period to ‘sweat the assets’ further still.”
