The deal was signed after Malcolm Logistics were impressed by the fuel savings and performance made possible with the manufacturer’s latest tyres.

More than 1,000 trailers and 300 tractor units will be fitted with them and the company will also take advantage of the dedicated TruckForce service to help reduce breakdown times and improve customer service.

Commenting on the decision to switch to Goodyear, Steve Sugden, Fleet Engineer for Malcolm Logistics said, “Running a fuel efficient fleet is a strong priority for us, alongside minimising the carbon emissions of our trucks. ‘

‘The benefits the Goodyear product combination affords, together with the service level support TruckForce brings, will help us to improve our own customer service and reduce fleet costs.”
