Continental signs pan-European tyre deal

Continental is taking over tyre management for the Luxemburg based carrier E-b-trans, which specialises in the transportation of hazardous goods throughout Europe.

With locations in 14 European countries, the E-b-trans group, which includes companies such as Klacska GmbH and Mineraloel Frachten GmbH, is one of the largest logistics and transportation networks for dangerous goods in Europe.

Continental was selected thanks to its economical and customer-focused package. E-b-trans is equipping its fleet with third-generation and second-generation Conti EcoPlus tyres. In addition, E-b-trans is using the Europe-wide Conti360° service network, which guarantees fast and straightforward 24-hour service in 37 countries in the event of a flat tyre.

Another reason for selecting the Hanover tyre manufacturer was its internationally standardised processes, which support tyre management and guarantee complete transparency using the easy-to-operate CESAR administration platform.

As part of the partnership, which is to last several years, Continental is equipping over 5,100 commercial vehicles with tyres.

E-b-trans is relying on the guidance of local Continental fleet specialists when it comes to selecting its tyres. In the agreed mileage contracts, they ensure that exactly the right type of tyre is employed to ensure an optimum combination of high mileage performance and low emissions.

The tyres are supplied by the Conti360° service partners, who are also able to install the tyres at the customer’s premises on a mobile basis.
