Bridgestone and Webfleet Solutions Prepare for ITT Hub 2022 to Showcase the Future of Sustainable Mobility


Mobility solutions specialists Bridgestone and Webfleet Solutions have confirmed that they will showcase the latest transport innovations at ITT Hub at stand 1346 to help businesses cut costs, drive efficiencies and reduce their carbon footprint.

ITT Hub Taking Place at Farnborough International Between 11-12th May

Delegates attending the ITT Hub will discover the latest developments in energy-efficient tyres and connected fleet technology for more sustainable, efficient operations.

Bridgestone’s Commercial Business Unit Director David Almazán said of the event: “ITT Hub provides us with the perfect opportunity to demonstrate how our advanced technologies can help fleets to drive efficiencies, realise cost-savings, reduce their carbon footprints and raise the bar in service delivery.”

An overarching picture will be painted of telematics combined with superior, premium products to provide industry-defining solutions for fleets – namely, maximised productivity and minimised total cost of ownership. It is in this regard that Bridgestone will state its case as a pioneer of mobility solutions.

Flagship Products at ITT Hub Include Ecopia H002 and the U-AP 002

The Ecopia H002 is a fuel-efficient tyre engineered to help long haul fleet operations cut their operational costs and CO2 emissions while the U-AP 002 is Bridgestone’s quietest bus product to date, reducing noise pollution by 2dB compared to its predecessor. It has a higher load capacity versus the 001, which is crucial when factoring in battery weight and is certified to eight tonnes in steer axle.

Both products are in line with EU legislation, notably in terms of CO2 emissions and noise, and are traceable with the electronic tagging system RFID (radio-frequency identification), adding value to customers looking to benefit from connectivity and predictive maintenance on the roads.

WEBFLEET’s award-winning EV fleet management features will also form a part of the ITT Hub, with experts on hand to explain how the software solution can enable, support and simply the electric transition, as well as other passenger transport tools to improve safety, service reliability and regulatory compliance.

In addition, Richard Parker, UKI EV Lead, Webfleet Solutions, will be joining a panel of speakers at the event’s Future Logistics Conference to offer his view on when and how to implement an electric van strategy. This is doubly important as the deadline for the end of fossil fuel-powered vehicles sales fast approaches.

At the ‘Future of Transport’ session at 10 am, May 12, there will be a keynote speech from Trudy Harrison MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Department of Transport.

Beverley Wise, Regional Director UK & Ireland, Webfleet Solutions, explained the importance of the event: “With demand for sustainable mobility growing year-on-year, fleet managers need a reliable and innovative partner to help them optimise their decarbonisation strategies while raising the cost-efficiency and service delivery bar.

“We look forward to demonstrating the power of our advanced solutions, which are playing an important role in helping fleet and passenger transport operators achieve their carbon neutral and wider business goals.”
