Manfreight to fit new Bridgestone Duravis tyres

Manfreight is set to fit Bridgestone’s new Duravis truck tyre on its fleet. Bridgestone will work with Markey Tyres in Craigavon to fit and maintain the new tyres on over 200 of Manfreight’s vehicles.

The new Duravis tyre has been developed by Bridgestone to provide class leading wet breaking, all weather capability, with a 3 Peaks rating, and future proofed environmental standards.

Early tests with European fleets across Europe have shown that there is no compromise on longevity with the Bridgestone Duravis.

“We are delighted that Manfreight will fit Bridgestone Duravis to its fleet and we are confident it will work extremely well on their vehicles,” says Andrew Frizzell, National Fleet Executive, Bridgestone Ireland.

Manfreight is one of Northern Ireland’s most progressive transport fleets and logistics companies and operate a mixed fleet of refrigerated units, curtain siders and rolling floor vehicles. They operate their own service centre in Craigavon.

“We are happy to work with Bridgestone and Markey Tyres fitting the new Bridgestone Duravis. We are impressed with the technology that Bridgestone has included in this tyre and believe this will benefit both Manfreight and its customers,” says Stephen Heasley, Fleet Manager, Manfreight.
