Nearly 50 DHL Express vans will begin running on the Michelin Uptis airless tyre to make last-mile deliveries in Singapore by the end of 2023. The pilot programme begins with the first vehicles making delivery trips from 10 January.
With the first post-pandemic TyreXpo Asia getting underway in a little over two months’ time, the organiser of the B2B tyre trade show shares that it can “no longer guarantee floorspace” due to overwhelming demand. It has therefore begun a waitlist for exhibitors who wish to be present when TyreXpo Asia takes place at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre on 8 to 10 March.
Omni United is moving towards a more sustainable future via sustainable driving and carbon neutral manufacturing which it began in 2013 with its Radar Tyre brand. Now, the company is introducing a two-pronged electric vehicle (EV) tyre strategy. The first phase will see the development of EV-compatible tyre ranges while the second phase will result in a dedicated speciality EV tyre line-up.
Singapore’s resurgence as a travel destination means that Tyrexpo Asia will soon return to its traditional home. Nine months out from the next planned show, organiser Tarsus Southeast Asia reports bookings from more than 100 international visitors, with half the floorspace across the three exhibition halls already occupied.
Tyre makers have committed themselves to ambitious sustainability goals, and can only achieve these through the use of sustainable raw materials. We’re currently seeing a spate of new plans and projects in this sector, the latest being an agreement that Japan’s Asahi Kasei Corporation concluded with Shell Eastern Petroleum Ltd. yesterday for the supply of butadiene derived from plastic waste and biomass.
Singapore has taken a hard line against Covid-19 and continues to enforce international travel restrictions. In order to ensure it can welcome visitors to Tyrexpo Asia 2022, organiser Tarsus Group has decided to hold the event in Bangkok instead. Thailand will allow quarantine-free entry for fully vaccinated travellers from low-risk countries from the beginning of November 2021 with no need to quarantine.

Tyrexpo Asia had originally been planned for March 2021 at The Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore. However, the event’s organiser Tarsus Group reports that “it has been necessary to reschedule the Tyrexpo Asia show in Singapore to 17 – 19 November 2021” due to “COVID-19 still continuing to affect all promotional business events around the world for the foreseeable future”.
Tyrexpo Asia 2021 is due to open in almost seven months’ time in March 2021.
