The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company will bring its Total Solution for owner-operators and small- to mid-size fleets to the Great American Trucking Show (GATS) next week in Dallas.

The Goodyear Total Solution of trusted products, a nationwide network, reliable services and fleet management tools is designed to help owner-operators and small- to mid-size fleets lower their operating costs. “The Goodyear Total Solution will be on display inside Goodyear’s GATS booth (#14077),” says Jose Martinez, digital and solutions manager, Goodyear.

The company says highlights will include:

  • Trusted products, including Goodyear’s new Marathon long haul line, which consists of the Marathon LHS, Marathon LHD and Marathon LHT; the Goodyear Endurance RSA, Goodyear’s best all-around tire for regional applications; and the Goodyear Fuel Max RSA, which helps provide excellent fuel economy for regional/long haul driving.
  • Goodyear’s tire and service network, which encompasses more than 2,300 locations from coast to coast, and includes both Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Centers and authorized Goodyear commercial tire dealers.
  • Reliable services, such as the 24/7 Goodyear-Fleet HQ Emergency Roadside Service program, which helps utility trucks that have been immobilized by road hazards return to service quickly. “The Goodyear-Fleet HQ Emergency Roadside Service program has put more than 1.1 million trucks back on the road, with a current, average roll-time of two hours and 11 minutes,” says Martinez. 
  • Fleet management tools, including Goodyear’s Tire Trac online tire management tool, which helps owner-operators and fleets monitor tire installations and performance, and the Goodyear Road Service App, which instantly connects truck drivers to Goodyear-Fleet HQ Emergency Roadside Service with the touch of a mobile phone screen.

GATS attendees also will have the opportunity to enroll in the Goodyear Smart Fleet program at Goodyear’s show booth, the company says. The Goodyear Smart Fleet program is Goodyear’s national account program for owner-operators and small- to mid-size fleets. There is no cost to enroll in the Goodyear Smart Fleet program, which the company says continues to see membership increases.

The Great American Trucking Show will be held Aug. 25-27 at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center.
