Tire monitoring and asset management systems supplier TireStamp has launched a “comprehensive tire and wheel maintenance program for fleets.” The program is customizable to each fleet’s unique operating needs and includes the latest industry recommended practices and procedures for maintaining tires and wheels.
Each tire maintenance program will fit a fleet’s specific operations, outsourced tire maintenance, and product preferences, the company said.
“A high percentage of for-hire and private carriers as well as bus and motorcoach fleets do not have a documented tire maintenance manual so their maintenance programs for tires and wheels are not well communicated to their personnel and to their outsourced tire service providers. As a result, bad practices creep into tire maintenance and the policies that the fleet believes it has established are not followed by its own maintenance staff nor by its tire dealers and retreaders,” said Peggy Fisher, president. “A written tire and wheel maintenance program eliminates confusion and is a reference that ensures the correct maintenance practices are employed by everyone to properly maintain the fleet’s tires and wheels.”
To implement a program for a fleet, TireStamp will have the fleet complete a comprehensive questionnaire that provides information specific to its maintenance operations and product preferences. This information is linked to an automated template that generates the fleet specific tire and wheel maintenance program which contains the fleet’s own, specific tire and wheel maintenance policies that fit its operations and uses industry best practices.
TireStamp’s fleet customized tire and wheel maintenance program joins the company’s portfolio of tire specific operational services available to fleet clients. It takes advantage of each fleet’s use of TireVigil TPMS and integrates the visibility of tire pressure and temperature status along with the labor savings TireVigil provides into the fleet’s maintenance program. Other tire maintenance-related services TireStamp provides include: tire maintenance facility evaluations, tire maintenance processes and procedures evaluations, and tire and wheel maintenance/servicing training that is required by OSHA.
