Bridgestone Americas says it marked its most successful year of integration of Bridgestone Fleet Care tire monitoring services in the U.S., surpassing 200 million annual tyre pressure readings in 2023. This marks the company’s highest annual total of tyre pressure readings to date across its truck & bus radial (TBR) and off-the-road (OTR) businesses, it said.
Bridgestone said its Fleet Care technology combines durable hardware with a software application designed to help fleet operators to proactively address specific tyre issues and mitigate unplanned maintenance, with the aim of helping to reduce downtime and improve driver safety. Fleets using this solution have access to critical data such as tyre inflation pressure and temperature, enabling them to continually monitor the health of each tyre throughout its lifecycle.
Commercial fleets leveraging the technology have reported significant business efficiencies and savings as a result of its real-time, data-driven insights.
