Tyre Monitoring Also Reveals Mechanical Issues

AFTER A successful trial, Continental’s tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) has been fitted to the majority of G Webb’s fleet, with all new vehicles receiving the equipment upon delivery.
Scaling up its deployment has been a particular enthusiasm for the company’s fleet engineering director, Paul Broker. He immediately noticed both financial and time gains for Longstanton, Cambridge based G Webb Haulage Ltd, appreciating how the Continental Digital Solutions range can flag issues that risk a breakdown and a lost load. “We were experiencing low tyre pressures and punctures on a relatively frequent basis but weren’t always aware of where, when or how they were happening,” he explained. “Sometimes, we didn’t know that there was a problem brewing until we did our weekly tyre checks on a Saturday. The ContiPressureCheck system has eliminated that doubt.
“The risk to our tyres is arguably higher than other areas of the haulage industry. We can be on quarries, landfill sites, fields – all places where sharp, abrasive materials can damage the rubber.”
