Kerr’s Tyres has secured a significant five year deal with the Montgomery Transport Group. The deal, which is estimated to deliver five figure savings over the duration of the contract, will see Kerr’s Tyres supply tyres and provide tyre maintenance, under an innovative Pence Per Kilometre (PPK) contract.
The contract will initially involve several companies within the Montgomery Transport Group including Montgomery Transport, Montgomery Distribution, Montgomery Tank Services and Montgomery Refrigeration.
PPK tyre contracts can bring many benefits to the Haulage industry. The peace of mind that there will be no unexpected spikes in tyre costs across the term of the contract is a huge benefit for any haulier running a medium to large fleet, however, the benefits don’t just stop there.
In addition to the cost of tyre purchase, the loss of productivity from a vehicle being off the road due to tyre malfunction can have a detrimental effect on the overall profitability of a load. The introduction of preventative maintenance by Kerr’s Tyres, as part of the PPK contract, will proactively manage Montgomery’s tyre stock across the fleet and help to drive down the number of breakdowns, reduce the health & safety implications of a driver at the side of a road, increase driver productivity and improve overall load profitability.
“Every customer is different and it is our job to understand their differing requirements and tailor the right package to suit them”, said Norman Kerr from Kerr’s Tyres, “Having worked with Montgomery’s for many years, we feel we are well positioned to provide the right level of service for the Group and are pleased they have awarded Kerr’s Tyres this prestigious PPK contract.”
