Goodyear Total Mobility signs two-year partnership with UK haulier

Goodyear has agreed a new two-year partnership with H. Parkinson Haulage Ltd, who provide logistics solutions for a multitude of commercial sectors. They boast a 300-strong fleet and over 300,000 sq ft of warehousing, strategically located across five sites in the North West of England.

H. Parkinson Haulage Ltd’s tractor units will be fitted with tyres from Goodyear’s Kmax – Gen 2 range, as part of the comprehensive Goodyear Total Mobility offering for commercial fleets.

According to Goodyear, this range delivers up to 25 per cent better all-weather capability, 15 per cent more damage resistance and five per cent higher fuel efficiency, enabling fleets to optimise tyre life and overcome challenging road conditions.

The tyres will also include Goodyear’s radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. The RFID tag is embedded in the tyre to allow simple identification and connectivity to tracking systems, allowing for more efficient tyre management. RFID also helps to prevent theft, as the tagged tyres can be easily traced.

As one of the brands within Goodyear’s commercial portfolio, Dunlop tyres will also be fitted to H. Parkinson Haulage Ltd’s trailers. The Dunlop SP246 provides high mileage and improved fuel efficiency, in both regional and long-haul applications. It also features optimised sipe amplitude and deep blades for long-lasting winter performance, offering better grip in wet and snowy conditions.

David Howe, commercial sales manager at Goodyear said: “Fleets like H. Parkinson Haulage Ltd are essential to the continued success of the UK haulage industry. Ensuring that such a large and active fleet constantly runs as efficiently as possible can be a challenge, though. That’s why we’re proud to be supporting H. Parkinson Ltd with tyres and digital solutions via Goodyear Total Mobility, our one-stop offering for commercial fleets.”
