Webfleet Solutions, Bridgestone on future fleet innovation at Commercial Motor Show
Webfleet Solutions and Bridgestone say that the virtual Commercial Motor Show represents an “incredible opportunity” to publicise their latest products and connected mobility solutions. The companies are working together to demonstrate the advantages of advanced fleet technologies. They say latest solutions can help truck and van operators drive efficiencies, realise cost-savings, reduce their carbon footprint and raise the bar in service delivery. The virtual exhibition and conference runs from 29 September to 1 October. It will present visitors with the latest vehicles, products, and services alongside webinars, live exhibitor chats, video calls, and product demonstrations.
Beverley Wise, sales director UK, Webfleet Solutions, said: “This is an incredible opportunity for fleet operators to discover more about how mobility solutions can help shape the future of their operations and drive cost efficiencies as they navigate the post-pandemic landscape.
“The transition from TomTom Telematics to Webfleet Solutions paves the way to a more connected, more holistic future in fleet and mobility management services. With us, Bridgestone EMIA now manages 1.2 million mobility and fleet management subscriptions.
“At the online Commercial Motor Show, we look forward to demonstrating how the synergies between our two brands can set truck and van operators on the right track to achieving their company-wide objectives, whilst delivering outstanding service and results.”
Bridgestone’s commercial sales director Greg Ward said: “Webfleet Solutions and Bridgestone fit perfectly from a strategic point of view and gives us a reinforced footprint in mobility solutions that make fleet operations more effective and efficient. We are looking forward to working together at the virtual exhibition and bringing these solutions to life to commercial fleets in a new and exciting way.
“We are continuing on our transformation journey from tyre producer to mobility solutions leader with Webfleet Solutions. With demand for fleet-based mobility growing year-on-year, fleet managers need more than ever before a reliable and innovative partner to help them maximise their effectiveness and efficiency through increased productivity and minimised total cost of ownership.
“Now, together, Bridgestone and Webfleet Solutions have the tools, insights and experience to fulfil those demands. We look forward to bringing this message to life.”
Streamlining business processes
At the three-day online event, Webfleet Solutions will demonstrate how its technology can streamline business processes. Key features are seamless connectivity, end-to-end systems including integrations with applications ranging from transport management systems and on-board cameras, to mileage, route optimisation and HGV specific navigation.
The company has added several new features recently for the transport sector. These include Asset Tracking, which gives companies visibility over the position and usage of their powered assets, and TachoShare, a remote download and archiving module that enables users to share data directly with their analysis software.
Meanwhile, Bridgestone will display the latest additions to its tyre ranges. These include the Ecopia H002, engineered to improve companies’ fuel economy and reduce CO2 emissions; the Duravis R002, designed to help fleets lower their operational costs by reducing cost per kilometre via their durability; and the Coach-AP 001, a cost-efficient option developed for coach fleet managers.
