Goodyear introduce tyres-as-a-service

Goodyear introduces a subscription-based, tyres-as-a-service offering designed to reduce total cost of ownership for fleets.

Goodyear’s new offering has enabled major fleets in the U.S. and Europe to lower costs and reduce vehicle breakdowns.

The Goodyear Tyre & Rubber Company today announced the launch of a worry-free, tyres-as-a-service offering that combines the company’s premium tyres, proven predictive insights and industry-leading service footprint in one, subscription-based solution. Building on the company’s Total Mobility program, Goodyear will manage end-to-end tyre service on behalf of its customers.

Available for commercial and last-mile delivery fleets in the U.S. and Europe, Goodyear’s tyres-as-a-service offering can help save time and improve total cost of ownership through outsourced tyre management from this subscription-based solution. This is designed to increase uptime, reduce vehicle breakdown events, decrease fuel consumption and more.

In recent pilots, the tyres-as-a-service solution helped reduce total cost of ownership, contributing to a nearly 80% reduction in emergency vehicle breakdown events and a 100% reduction in customer-owned inventory for a last-mile delivery fleet operating in the U.S. Similarly, Goodyear’s new subscription helped a commercial fleet in Europe experience a nearly 50% reduction in emergency breakdown events and up to 4% reduction in fuel consumption compared to the prior 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. It extends Goodyear products, services and solutions by providing one comprehensive, worry-free subscription,” said Gregory Boucharlat, vice president, Goodyear Tyres-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 pay-per-mileage subscription include:

Premium Goodyear tyres equipped with tyre intelligence technology to generate proactive insights
Continuous, 24/7 tyre monitoring and data collection from every tyre
Proactive alert management and service coordination
Halo® Tyre Inflator, a self-powered automatic tyre inflation system installed on applicable wheel ends (through an exclusive agreement with Aperia Technologies)
