GroContinental commits to Michelin

Major logistics provider Grocontinental, part of the AGRO Merchants Group, has signed a three-year tyre management contract with Michelin that will see the two-time Motor Transport Haulier of the Year firm continue to fit Michelin tyres across its fleet of 180 truck and trailer assets until at least 2021.

GroContinental has signed a three-year tyre management contract with Michelin.

The contract covers all aspects of tyre maintenance and inspections to ensure that tyres across the Shropshire-based logistics firm’s fleet are managed as efficiently as possible – including regrooving and retreading every casing to extend its life and reduce unnecessary raw material depletion.

Commenting, David Grocott, Managing Director at Grocontinental, says: “ Tyres are not something we’re prepared to compromise on – they play a critical role in everything from our safety and uptime to fuel efficiency. Michelin has a strong track record with us and their products are first class; when you combine that with the financial benefits of the deal, we knew this was the right move.”
