Chichester District Council has extended its tyre supply and management contract with Bandvulc, part of Continental Tyres, for its fleet of 26 Mercedes-Benz ‘Econic’ refuse collection vehicles.
After years of fitting Bandvulc and Continental tyres to its fleet, UK supply chain logistics provider, Fowler Welch, has now put the two manufacturers’ low rolling resistance (LRR) offerings to the test.
The benefits operators can gain from retreading their tyres are numerous. With retreads, fleets achieve 95 per cent mileage at 70 per cent of the cost of a new tyre, offering excellent value for money and significantly reducing running costs in a competitive fleet market.
Bandvulc will be exhibiting at the upcoming Freight in the City at Alexandra Palace in London, which takes place on Wednesday, November 6.
After suffering numerous failures and replacement costs associated with tyre sidewall damage and low-wear characteristics, the Kent-based bus fleet of Go-Coach Hire is shifting its entire fleet to Bandvulc BDE1 Citymaster tyres and Uniroyal products.
When it comes to tyres and wheels it is essential that you specify the right tyre for your operation and application when you order the vehicle from you vehicle distributor.

The arrangement covers around 500 trucks and 1,500 trailers currently on the Bibby fleet,
With environmental consciousness front of mind across the transport industry and society as a whole, commercial fleet operators work hard to reduce fuel consumption, to meet strict legal requirements and help lower overall driving costs.
Bandvulc has confirmed its participation at Tip-ex and Tank-ex 19, which takes place at Harogate Convention Centre, May 30-June1.
With pressures on today’s operators increasing from driver shortages, fuel increases and ultra-low emission zones, keeping costs under control is even more crucial.
Bandvulc will present its ‘Gripmaster’ range of on- and off-road construction tyres to audiences at this year’s Tip-Ex show from May 30 to June 1 at the Harrogate Convention Centre.
