Westlake Tyres Negotiates Substantial Tyre Agreement with TIP Trailer Services

TIP Trailer Services will purchase a significant amount of Westlake Tyres.
Westlake Tyres and TIP Trailer Services Nordic have come to an agreement for the purchase and use of a significant amount of Westlake Tyres.

DSV Road NV has been pursuing several activities beyond its transportation services to further strengthen its business position and gain more control over its operational fleet management. In 2016, DSV acquired the exclusive distribution rights for Westlake Tyres and since then has been offering Westlake to all contracted hauliers as well as to the commercial vehicle market in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland. The distribution agreement – which was facilitated in close cooperation with ZC Rubber’s official European distributor Pneuhage - was a result of DSV being satisfied with the performance of Westlake Tyres on its own fleet since 2012.

Martin Nielsen, Country Operations Manager of TIP Trailer Services Sweden, states: “At TIP Trailer Services Nordic we are continuously working on diversifying our tyre offerings in order to accommodate our customers’ different needs. Therefore, our agreement with Westlake Tyres goes hand in hand with this strategy. The performance of the Westlake tyres, followed closely by our organisation, has made us choose the brand for obvious reasons. The tyre is performing very well and is a strong value-for-money product, which is the reason why we have added Westlake to our tyre portfolio”.
