Building upon Goodyear's successful Total Mobility program, this new service aims to manage all tyre-related needs for its customers. It is particularly beneficial for commercial and last-mile delivery fleets, offering an end-to-end tyre management system that saves time and reduces the total cost of ownership. The service promises increased uptime, fewer vehicle breakdowns, and lower fuel consumption.

Impressive Results in Pilot Programs

Recent pilot programmes have demonstrated the effectiveness of Goodyear’s tyres-as-a-service solution. A last-mile delivery fleet in the U.S. reported an almost 80% reduction in emergency vehicle breakdowns and a complete elimination of customer-owned inventory. Similarly, a commercial fleet in Europe saw a nearly 50% reduction in breakdown events and a 4% decrease in fuel consumption compared to the previous year.

“Goodyear’s tyres-as-a-service offering is an evolution of our Total Mobility offering, providing a new solution for customers who require end-to-end tyre management,” stated Gregory Boucharlat, Vice President of Goodyear Tires-as-a-Service. “We have already demonstrated that leveraging this solution can help fleet managers realise untapped value, and we look forward to expanding it to new customers.”

Key Features of the Service

The tyres-as-a-service subscription includes several advanced features designed to optimise fleet performance:

  • Premium Goodyear tyres with integrated tyre intelligence technology for proactive insights.
  • Continuous, 24/7 tyre monitoring and data collection from every tyre.
  • Proactive alert management and coordinated service response.
  • Halo® Tire Inflator, an automatic tyre inflation system installed on applicable wheel ends through an exclusive partnership with Aperia Technologies.
  • Access to Goodyear’s expansive service network to deploy technicians as needed.

This comprehensive approach ensures that fleets benefit from uninterrupted operations, reduced maintenance burdens, and improved overall efficiency.
