Bridgestone and Firestone Industrial Products together at the 66th IAA Commercial Vehicles 2016

Global player to present innovative solutions for fleet operators

“Total Tyre Care – Identifying with your fleet“ – this is the umbrella under which Bridgestone’s IAA booth in 2016 is built. From September 21st to 29th, Bridgestone, the world’s largest tyre and rubber company, will present its newest software solutions. These solutions offer fleet operators a better overview of the condition of the tyres in their vehicle pool. A special highlight is the system Tirematics™, which continuously delivers live-data on the condition of the tyres – this will be under the spotlight in a media round table on September 21st. In addition, Firestone Industrial Products, the world #1 air spring manufacturer will exhibit its portfolio of products. 

At Bridgestone our motto is “Identifying with your fleet”, our booth is all about these customized solutions, demonstrating how we apply Total Tyre Care, to serve the specific needs of each fleet. The various services and systems for fleets are structured into 3 interconnected programmes: 

Monitor - revealing the actual tyre condition and performance 
Maintain - getting the maximum value out of the tyres 
Manage - making life easy for the fleet, reducing administrative burden, while giving full transparency. 

Total Tyre Care will be shown in practice through a comprehensive video display. We will also be giving live demonstrations of new systems like BASys (casing management), Toolbox (fleet auditing) and Total Tyre Manager (fleet reporting) and will be revealing further developments in the pipeline. 

Alongside this you will see the Bridgestone Partner Service van, the flagship of Bridgestone’s new professional pan-European dealer network bringing superior quality in consultancy and services to fleets. 

Another highlight will be Tirematics™, Bridgestone’s innovative solutions on the area of connected tyres and pro-active tyre maintenance for commercial fleets. Today more than 60 

major fleets are using our first Tirematics solution and it continues to be developed. During the media round table at 15:00 on the 21stat Bridgestone’s booth (Hall 16, stand C01)you will be able to learn more about Tirematics, its benefits and the exciting developments that are to come.

As a notable tyre manufacturer, Firestone designed and patented the first air spring. At the IAA Commercial Vehicle show, Firestone Industrial Products will showcase their innovative series ofFirestone Air Damping products for trucks, trailers and driver cabins.With their new products, Firestone succeeds in integrating air spring and damper functionality into one single system. Asa result, the total cost of ownership including wear of suspension related components and tyre scan be reduced.
