How Smart Tire Technology Is Changing Fleet Management

Bob Herr can’t do it alone. Neither can the 85 drivers and the 90-vehicle fleet he manages at foodservice distributor Feesers Inc.

The central Pennsylvania-based com­pany, which supplies restaurants, health care facilities, and other customers throughout the Mid-Atlantic, averages one flat tire per week.

For Herr and other fleet managers, intelligent tires are helping to prevent those costly and time-consuming tire failures.

Intelligent tires allow drivers and fleet managers to see what’s going on via digital monitoring. They afford performance visibility from inside a truck cab, on a mobile app or on a dashboard portal located thousands of miles away.

Data analytics and intelligent reporting are the future of tire management, said Paul Williams, Continental Tire’s executive vice president of commercial vehicle tires and digital solutions.

“We see the need for helping fleets reduce tire-related costs, increase uptime and optimize maintenance operations through a combination of data intelligence and service capabilities,” Williams said. “By providing this solutions-provider approach, Continental allows fleets to focus on their core operations. This ensures fleets can achieve their lowest overall driving cost.”
