The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. announced today, July 27, that it has been awarded a supply arrangement by Interstate Brands Corp. to provide commercial tires for up to 10,000 vehicles that transport Hostess and Dolly Madison sweet goods and Wonder and Home Pride breads. Under the arrangement, Goodyear will supply replacement truck tires and tire services in North America for Interstate Brands trucks.
“Working with Interstate Brands is a great opportunity for us to gain new business,” says Steve McClellan, vice president of commercial tire systems for Akron, Ohio-based Goodyear. “Our ability to offer a comprehensive service package of original equipment, replacement and retread tires, as well as value-added services, is key to this new agreement. We also have an unmatched network of service providers throughout the United States and Canada to service Interstate Brands trucks. We believe that by using our national network of commercial tire centers, Interstate Brands will improve its efficiency in maintaining its fleet. Our collection of fleet management tools gives Interstate Brands more control of its per-mile tire costs.”
