Goodyear opens its ‘Convoy’ e-commerce truck tyre programme to everyone
In the USA, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company announced that it will extend the full capabilities of its Commercial Total Solution to carriers of all sizes in Convoy’s Digital Freight Network, in a statement on 9 April 2020. According to the company, Convoy is the first online discount programme Goodyear has offered through its commercial e-commerce platform GoodyearTruckTires.com.
“Goodyear is excited to collaborate with Convoy to offer carriers of all sizes access to our trusted products, premiere service network and complete tyre management solutions,” said Johnny McIntosh, Goodyear’s director of integrated solutions and tyre management. “Carriers can now get the tires they need at competitive prices with a seamless purchase experience through Convoy’s connection to Goodyear’s e-commerce system.”
Convoy’s technology platform connects shippers with independent carriers, small fleets and owner/operators, who will now have access to Goodyear’s full commercial truck tire portfolio. This includes online discounts on tyres at GoodyearTruckTires.com, an exclusive service line through FleetHQ to request 24/7 emergency roadside assistance and access to Goodyear’s network of 2,300 service locations throughout North America.
“We’re thrilled to build on our relationship with Goodyear, one of the most trusted brands in the world,” said Brooks McMahon, Convoy’s vice president of partnerships. “This partnership provides carriers in Convoy’s network with unparalleled access to Goodyear’s online platform and roadside assistance program, at a time when they need that support and assistance the most.”
GoodyearTruckTires.com is an extension of its consumer platform, which reportedly leads the industry in website traffic.
