Goodyear OTR seals deal with London Gateway
ERJ staff report (TP)
London – Goodyear Off-The-Road (OTR) tires have been fitted to 28 shuttle carrier vehicles at the London Gateway port.
The new fitment forms a three-year contract between Goodyear and DP World London Gateway to provide OTR EV-3+, EV-4A and EV-4C Industrial radial tires.
London Gateway is the first port to be built in the UK in a generation and "occupies a unique position in the nation’s logistics landscape". It has the infrastructure to handle the next generation of “Ultra Large Container Ships” (ULCS), and is currently in the first phase of its development.
Neil Bellinger, workshop & mobile equipment manager at London Gateway, said: “The Goodyear OTR tires performed exceptionally well against all criteria – in particular cost per hour.”
The Goodyear OTR Team in the UK are supporting London Gateway by performing regular inspections, providing detailed reports on tire performance, wear rates, cost per hour and projections based working hours.
Goodyear’s container handling radial OTR tires are manufactured using a special compound for improved tread wear.
