Data increasingly important to future prospects in tyre and mobility sectors

Data increasingly important to future prospects in tyre and mobility sectors

11th February 2019 | 0 Comments

It is not unusual for the start of the year to be replete with corporate acquisitions. Some even happen while much of the western world is enjoying Christmas and new year holidays. While European FinTyre Distribution (EfTD) did indeed enact the latest move in its ongoing strategic purchasing programme during the 2018 holiday break, it seems that this year February was the month of choice for getting the chequebooks out, with Bridgestone, Michelin and – in the UK at least – Goodyear all announcing strategic spending.

Practical emergence of RFID unlocks data opportunities

Practical emergence of RFID unlocks data opportunities

8th January 2019 | 0 Comments

The industrialisation of big data has been progressing quickly in recent years within the automotive segment.

Such systems are also able to increase the business applications of another technology, radio-frequency identification, or RFID, helping commercial tyre distribution chains to increase cost, time, and safety efficiency as well as accuracy in their collection of data. Steve Daly, commercial director of CAM, the provider of e-jobsheet, TiDaeX, and the Online Tyre Catalogue, told Tyres & Accessories about the opportunities RFID is now unlocking, and how future, more affordable reading technology could increase the reach of these gains.

Goodyear share price picks up, hedge funds back Goodyear

12th December 2018 | 0 Comments

Goodyear’s share price picked up by up to 1 per cent during early trading on 12 December 2018, having risen 0.56 per cent by the close of the previous session (up from $21.59 to $21.71). Considering that the value of these shares fell -8.70 per cent during the preceding seven-day period, and experienced a loss of -1.76 per cent over the past 30-day period suggests this is a significant uptick. In addition, when you compare this with the 1.5 per cent one-day drop all tyre majors experienced in October when Michelin warned that demand was softening, it appears that the share price is bouncing back.
