Pirelli set to return to CV Show

Pirelli is set to return to largest and most comprehensive road freight transport, distribution and logistics event staged at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre: The Commercial Vehicle (CV) Show.

Pirelli’s latest generation of the :01 Series truck range will be on display, providing visitors with a chance to see the latest developments and Pirelli’s enhancement of integrated services for more efficient mobility.

The specific product range on show will include the FR:01 II and TR:01 II, the ST:01 Base, specifically designed for trailers and semi-trailers, also Europe’s first double ‘A’ rated Trailer tyre, the ST:01 Neverending. Completing the picture will be the ST:01 M+S, a mud and snow variant with 3PMSF marking when better winter grip performance is needed

Also on display is the Novateck TR:01 in 295/80R22.5, a cold retreaded tyre made using the latest High Pressure press system and multi segment mould, giving some of the best product performance in the UK today.

System wise, Pirelli will demonstrate the Pirelli Fleet Management Platform (PFM), which gives logistic managers on-line and real time cost control over their tyre assets and allows them to concentrate on running the fleet. The Pirelli PFM system is extremely user friendly and has been developed and fine-tuned with many service providers to ensure minimal input time and a fast worksheet approval procedure. Pirelli’s products have to perform but its systems have to have performance at the core whilst making it easy for its partners to do business with them.
Chris Evans, Director of Truck at Pirelli UK, said: “Last year was the first time we had been back at the CV Show for over a decade and it was a resounding success so it made complete sense to return in 2016. The show gives up the opportunity to showcase our superb latest generation :01 Truck range, and fleet and business management systems.”
