Free Report – The costs of tyre inflation

Birmingham, UK:  ATS Euromaster has published a its Inflation Report 2013 available at the CV SHow, Birmingham which ends today.

The free guide produced exclusively for the show, highlights why fleets in 2013 must pay closer attention to their tyres than ever before.

The report offers a range of need-to-know facts and figures comparing prices today with a decade ago, and demonstrating in the process how the rising cost of tyres and fuel mean sub-optimum tyre set-ups can cost fleets dearly.  Split into eight parts, including sections on underinflation and wheel misalignment, the guide offers a stark wake-up call to fleet operators who may not look after their tyres as well as they should.

Peter Fairlie, ATS Euromaster’s group sales director, says: “Maximising tyre performance should have been on every fleet manager’s radar a decade ago; but in 2013, and with costs spiralling, if your tyres aren’t being expertly managed then it should be ringing alarm bells.  No business can afford to be throwing money away if it wants to be competitive and profitable.

“For example, the annual cost* of 20 per cent underinflation in 2003 for a 4×2 artic was £482.  But in 2013 the penalty* for the same vehicle has jumped to £888, which is an enormous amount of money to be wasting.  By simply making sure a comprehensive tyre management procedure is in place, fleets will be able to save and potentially make a significant improvement to their bottom line.

“If you’re a fleet operator you really can’t afford to miss our ‘Inflation Report’.”

*All calculations based on a 4×2 tractor unit operating with a tri-axle trailer. Fuel consumption measured at 8.7 mpg over 120,000 km a year and fitted with premium brand tyres. Based upon the average bulk diesel price (excluding VAT) in January 2003 versus the daily price on 5 March 2013.
