The COVID-19 pandemic will re-shape the way fleets operate for years to come but fortunately the release of this month’s Truck Book Pro is an opportunity for businesses to find the trucks, products and services to side-step the challenges they now face.
As ever, tyres and lubricants are crucial to minimising servicing downtimes and keeping vehicles on the road longer.
JASPA, the sole representative of world-renowned brands like Longmarch, Alliance (Yokohama off-highway tyres), Boto, RoadX, Nexen Solid Tyres, OKO Tyre Sealant and Roadwest, is asking its in-house technical team to conduct rigorous product and performance testing to check its suitability for the application with stringent standards: “Over time, the team has gained immense knowledge about the region and its requirements; and JASPA is looked up to as a solution provider for the problems faced by the customers. Its on-field expertise ensures trust among customers and it has been rewarded with turnkey contracts from major fleets and government entities in the UAE.”
Within the region, global lubricant brand Valvoline is focused on extending its footprint by increasing the local production and the logistic capacity. It remains dedicated to providing its customers with a complete range of lubricants, chemicals and parts, backed by quality, a dedicated sales teams, broad distribution and technical support. It can provide customers with equipment, training and selling support.
As the company says: “Downtime is the last word operators want to hear. Any bus or truck off the road costs money. We know that you want to keep your vehicles working as efficiently and productively as possible. We also know that you would like to reduce your maintenance costs as well as total vehicle ownership costs. Valvoline has the products and technology to help you extend service intervals, extend the working life of equipment and improve residual values. Put Valvoline expertise, innovation and solutions to work for you.”
German giant Continental says it wants to improve the safety and sustainability of fleets across the region: “Continental is one of the world’s leading manufacturers for commercial vehicle tyres. In our plants throughout the world, we produce tyres for a variety of applications, characterised by different vehicles, road conditions and customer requirements as well as driver behaviour.
“Our product portfolio comprises truck and bus tyres as well as commercial specialty tyres. The business unit is developing from a mere tyre manufacturer to a solution provider, also offering services and solutions such as the ContiLifeCycle™, ContiPressureCheck™ and Conti360°, which help our customers to optimise their business.”
