Continental inspection tool celebrates million tire milestone

Continental announced Monday it is celebrating one million tires measured in the U.S. and Canada with its Bluetooth-enabled digital inspection tool, ContiTrack2.

According to Continental, the ContiTrack2 tool and associated software program identifies and tracks a commercial tire’s tread wear and tire pressure in real time. Used by Continental sales representatives and dealers since 2012, it delivers actionable recommendations for fleets to reduce their cost-per-mile and improve tire run-out and performance. The ContiTrack2 tool is part of Continental’s suite of solutions for delivering a fleet’s Lowest Overall Driving Cost, the company says.

“Equipping our sales representatives with the latest technology has always been a priority for Continental,” says Tom Fanning, Continental’s vice president of sales and marketing for commercial vehicle tires in North America. “When a Continental representative visits a fleet, they are ready to provide strategic recommendations to help that fleet lower their tire costs.”

“ContiTrack2 has been an indispensable tool for us over the last five years to help our fleet customers reach their lowest overall driving cost,” adds Paul Williams, Continental’s executive vice president of commercial vehicle tires in the Americas region. “With this data, fleets have been able to extend the life of their tires, reduce fuel consumption, and decrease the likelihood of roadside breakdowns. It has also demonstrated the performance of our tires over time.”
