Akron − Owner-operators and mid-size fleets now have full access to many of the benefits larger trucking fleets enjoy thanks to Goodyear’s new Smart Fleet program.
The program has been designed for customers who want ‘the best of the best’ and provides advantages that up until now were reserved for Goodyear national account fleets, said Jose Martinez, business solutions manager, Goodyear Commercial Tire Systems.
The company said the program will include access to premium Goodyear branded truck tires and technologies; DuraSeal Technology (self-sealing tire technology); online, published pricing on new tires, retreads and services; and a 24/7 roadside service program.
“On average, Goodyear-FleetHQ gets trucks up and running in two hours and 11 minutes,” said Martinez. “In addition, Smart Fleet members will not have to pay a dispatch fee for road service calls, which can add up to significant savings.
“All prices will be published at national account rates, which eliminates uncertainty around price. Smart Fleet members will receive the same pricing at any participating Goodyear commercial tire dealership nationwide, so there are no pricing surprises, whether on the road or at home.”
