Goodyear brings its Total Solution to GATS

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. will bring its Total Solution for owner-operators and small- to mid-size fleets to the Great American Trucking Show, which will take place Thursday-Saturday, Aug. 25-27, in Dallas, Texas, at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.

The Goodyear Total Solution of products, a nationwide network, services and fleet management tools is designed to help owner-operators and small- to mid-size fleets lower their operating costs.

“The Goodyear Total Solution will be on display inside Goodyear’s GATS booth (No. 14077),” said Jose Martinez, digital and solutions manager for Goodyear. Highlights will include Goodyear services, such as the 24/7 Goodyear-Fleet HQ Emergency Roadside Service program, which helps utility trucks that have been immobilized by road hazards return to service quickly.

“The Goodyear-Fleet HQ Emergency Roadside Service program has put more than 1.1 million trucks back on the road, with a current, average roll-time of two hours and 11 minutes,” said Martinez.

GATS attendees also will have the opportunity to enroll in the Goodyear Smart Fleet program at Goodyear’s show booth. The Goodyear Smart Fleet program is Goodyear’s national account program for owner-operators and small- to mid-size fleets. There’s no cost to join.

Benefits of membership include:

Access to premium Goodyear-brand truck tires, retreads and technologies;
Online, published pricing on new Goodyear tires, retreads and services – honored by participating Goodyear commercial tire dealers;
Goodyear-Fleet HQ Emergency Roadside Service. “Goodyear Smart Fleet members do not have to pay a dispatch fee for road service calls,” said Martinez.
Customized tire performance and service activity reporting, and more.
Owner-operators and small- to mid-size fleet owners who sign up for the Goodyear Smart Fleet program at the Goodyear booth during GATS will be automatically entered into a drawing for their choice of two select steer tires. Available choices include the Marathon LHS, the Fuel Max RSA or the Goodyear G399A. (Visit the Goodyear booth at GATS for additional terms and conditions.)

Show-goers who attend the four “Partners In Business” seminars during GATS also will be eligible to enter the Goodyear steer tire drawing. “Partners in Business” seminars will take place on Friday, Aug. 26, from 11 a.m. to noon and 1-2 p.m., and on Saturday, Aug. 27, 1:30-2:30 p.m. and 3:30-4:30 p.m.
