Goodyear launches Connected Fleet Management Solutions


Goodyear, a global tire company, has launched a new pan-European business called Goodyear Proactive Solutions, which offers a suite of vehicle-to-fleet operations management solutions featuring advanced telematics and predictive analytics technology.

The new solution has been developed using computer algorithms and data derived from the company's commercial tyre and service business, which enable fleets to monitor their vehicles and tyres in real time.

Goodyear Europe, Middle-East and Africa commercial business vice-president Michel Rzonzef said: "We are witnessing a transformational shift that is reshaping commercial trucking.

“In a digital economy, consumers and businesses expect deliveries to be faster, cheaper and more flexible, and in response the industry is becoming increasingly connected and automated.

“Goodyear Proactive Solutions offers fleet managers a one-stop, user-friendly solution to help reduce their total cost of operations and improve the uptime, efficiency and sustainability of their fleets.”

Goodyear has designed and developed its fleet management solutions in partnership with commercial fleet operators over the last two years.

"In a digital economy, consumers and businesses expect deliveries to be faster, cheaper and more flexible, and in response the industry is becoming increasingly connected and automated."

Goodyear Proactive Solutions managing director André Weisz said: "Goodyear Proactive Solutions enhances our role as a key commercial fleet partner by combining the latest digital technologies and data services with our existing fleet support systems and industry-leading TruckForce service network, which serve the largest pool of commercial vehicles in Europe (more than 350,000 registered vehicles) through over 2,000 service partners across the continent.

“Our innovative solutions are fully compatible with all commercial truck tyres, allowing every fleet owner the opportunity to benefit from these new connected fleet management solutions."

Currently, the Goodyear Proactive Solutions is available in all the major European countries that include Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
