ZF Joins Forces with Goodyear To Offer Enhanced Tyre And Fleet Management Solutions For CVs In Europe

 

ZF announced that it has entered a long-term agreement with Goodyear bringing together ZF’s advanced Transics-branded, Fleet Management Solutions (FMS) and Goodyear’s high performing tyre portfolio and mobility solutions.

 

Initially, ZF and Goodyear will offer European commercial vehicle fleets an integrated suite of fleet and tyre management applications supporting mixed and multi-brand fleets, said the company in a release.

 

Through an interoperable and flexible solution, based on a single telematics box, TX-TRAILERPULSE, fleets can access the services and support of both companies, including Goodyear tyre data and full access to ZF’s Transics FMS solutions, TX-TRAILERFIT and TX-CONNECT, the company added.

To provide fleets with an integrated Fleet and Tyre Management Solution, ZF and Goodyear Tyres will leverage real-time data generated from all makes of Trailer Braking Systems (T-EBS) and tyre sensors.

This will equip fleet operators and drivers with a wide range of actionable insights and smart functions. These are designed to optimize vehicle park usage while also helping to avoid road accidents and mitigate unscheduled vehicle downtime.

Addressing market demand for more open and seamlessly integrated FMS, the collaboration will provide fleets with the combined benefits of both ZF’s fleet management services and Goodyear’s high performing commercial vehicle tyre portfolio.

With a clear focus on vehicle safety, the interoperable solution will enable fleets and trailer builders to comply with the EU General Safety Regulation mandated advanced safety functions which, come into effect from July 2022.

Providing advanced tyre and trailer operating health insights, as well as enhanced driver safety monitoring, the collaboration will also help significantly reduce the 200,000 roadside incidents reported each year in the EU.

Supporting greener mobility, the rich, real-time data obtained from the trailer’s onboard systems and tyres, will enable fleets to optimize vehicle usage, reduce fuel consumption and lower emissions.

The partners estimate that the collaboration could realize an emissions reduction of up to 2 tons of CO2 per connected trailer.

In addition to customers being free to select either company as their supplier, the modular and extendable total mobility offer means they only need to buy the functionalities required and can upgrade, if additional services are required later.

Simplifying the implementation of operational management systems for fleets, it will provide a rich, integrated data set without the complexity of operating multi-vendor systems as well as significantly reducing installation times. Supporting this comprehensive range of services, ZF and Goodyear will offer strong pan-European support for fleets.

“ZF’s collaboration with Goodyear harnesses the expertise and extensive capabilities of two industry-leaders behind a shared conviction to offer European fleets and trailer builders the benefits of a one-stop Fleet Management Solution,” said Peter Bal, Business Leader – Digital Customer Services, EMEA with ZF’s Commercial Vehicle Control System division.
