Truck rental company Coallease chooses Prometeon for the supply of tyres covering their entire fleet of trucks, trailers, and vans.
Prometeon Tyre Group Wins Collease Truck And Trailer Hire Contract
Premium tyre manufacturer Prometeon Tyre Group has signed a new ‘pay-as-you-go’ contract with Collease Truck and Trailer Hire for the provision of tyres for the leading truck rental company’s entire fleet.
Collease leases trucks and trailers from five sites: Manchester, Felixstowe, Southampton, Norwich and Basildon supporting its customers who deliver into distribution depots and hubs up and down the UK.
The Collease fleet totaling 1,920 vehicles, can clock up to 100,000 km a week, consisting of 1520 trailers and nearly 400 motorised vehicles, of which half are tractor units. The remaining range from 26-tonne fridges to 3.5 tonne vans. Prometeon’s pay-as-you-go model replaces tyres when required and is a fully managed offer consisting of comprehensive dealer management, fleet tyre audits, and a sophisticated on-line central billing portal, making it a highly cost-effective option for the truck rental operator.
Martin Drewery, Maintenance Director at Collease Truck and Trailer Hire, comments; “We know from running a fleet for over 40 years that Prometeon’s Pirelli-branded tyres give us the ‘price against life’ value that we need for our fleet. Our customers are looking for fuel efficiency, reliability and a premium tyre that is robust and hard-wearing,” says Drewery.
Prometeon is supplying tyres from their Itineris range to meet the price v life requirement, the majority of tyres fitted are IT-T90 for trailers, with IT-S90 being fitted to the steer and IT-D90 for drive axles.
Reliable and efficient customer service was a deciding factor for Collease when choosing a new tyre supplier. ‘It has been a positive move getting Prometeon on board and a seamless transition from our previous supplier,” adds Drewery. “In addition to the quality of the tyres themselves, I have been impressed with Prometeon’s on-line billing portal and their dedicated Call Centre team; their can do attitude has freed up additional time for us to focus on our customers, which has been a real benefit,” explains Drewery.
Commenting on the contract renewal, Prometeon National Fleet Manager Wayne Bell, adds; “I am delighted that Collease Truck and Trailer Hire have chosen us to supply and manage their tyres. I am looking forward to working closely with Mark and his team to develop a long term relationship supporting Collease and their customers to keep their trucks running efficiently and safely.”
