UK container transport service company Port Express has selected Vacu-Lug Tyre Management as its dedicated tyre management solutions partner. The company operates a fleet of more than 90 vehicles and 150 dedicated trailers from its depots in Felixstowe, Southampton and Birmingham. Port Express will utilise Vacu-Lug’s Tyre Rescue service to reduce downtime.
Vacu-Lug has become the new retread manufacturing partner for Hankook in the UK. The company signalled its new status by including the manufacturer’s Alphatread retreading brand on its stand at the Commercial Vehicle Show (24-26 April, Birmingham NEC), coinciding with the beginning of production of the Alphatread bead-to-bead retread truck tyre range at the Vacu-Lug factory in Grantham.
