Specialist Fleet Services (SFS), a leading contract hire and fleet management supplier to local authorities across the UK, is seeing its relationship with Teignbridge District Council move into an 18th year, owed in part to its tyre supply and management contract with Bandvulc.
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.

Bibby Distribution has placed its tyre management and supply contract with Bandvulc for a third consecutive time. Bandvulc, the tyre retread specialist that is now part of Continental Tyres, had successfully completed two three-year contracts and has now secured the third. 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.
