Haulage company Gor Oz achieves major cost savings with ContiConnect Live
Gor Oz, based in the city of Be’er Sheva in Southern Israel has been relying on the digital ContiConnect Live solution for its tyre management since late 2021. “The solution from Continental and Questar, on the other hand, works really well for us. The system is easy to install and enables us to view real-time tyre data, such as pressure and temperature, at any time – regardless of the vehicle’s location” says Gor Oz fleet manager Ran Gordon.
Proactive Approach Means Greater Certainty
The Gor Oz fleet is made up of 130 trucks and 150 trailers. Located in Be’er Sheva, the key transportation hub for southern Israel, its core business consists of transporting vehicles, temperature-sensitive frozen products and agricultural goods such as livestock, poultry and animal feed. Gor Oz equipped 39 of its vehicles with ContiConnect Live while acting as a Continental test customer. The sensors were fitted in a total of 316 tyres. “Our trucks cover millions of miles a year,” reports Gordon. “Monitoring the tyres and scheduling tyre changes has always been the hardest part of vehicle maintenance.” The ContiConnect Live solution provides real-time tyre data, making it possible to react to any problems with tyres in good time.
Customised Solutions and Minimised Real-Life Fleet Costs
The digital ContiConnect Live solution monitors tyre pressures and temperatures for all trucks and trailers in the fleet. The data is relayed to the ContiConnect backend using RF receivers and can then be accessed by the customer either from their desktop or using the new mobile On-Site App. Regular over-the-air (OTA) software updates ensure that customers enjoy the benefits of all the latest advances.The digital platform provides fleet managers with live access to the current condition of their fleet and allows them to remedy tyre damage without delay. Periodic inspections of tyre mileage and tread depth can be incorporated into the vehicles’ maintenance routine. This improves fleet reliability, uptime and efficiency.
