New And Remix Michelins Save Wincanton Fuel

MICHELIN has won a five year tyre management contract with logistics firm Wincanton, in a deal believed to be one of the most significant commercial vehicle tyre contracts signed this year.

The agreement was secured following a competitive tender and will see the core Wincanton liveried fleet of around 2,500 assets, switch to a Michelin New and Remix policy. Independently verified fuel efficiency of Michelin’s tyres proved key to securing the change in procurement strategy.

Carl Hanson, group procurement and fleet director at Wincanton, said: ‘We considered proposals from a number of tyre manufacturers and service providers, but Michelin gave us the confidence of offering a premium fitment, tyre management and the added value of a product which would save us fuel.
