OTR Tyres have recently secured a long term contract with Shanks East London to handle all their onsite earthmover tyre management requirements.
OTR have taken responsibility for Shanks' 6 sites and 15 loading shovels, reducing Shanks' burden of unexpected tyre related costs. "The OTR contract gives fixed costs for tyres and tyre maintenance and are therefore totally budgeted for by Shanks, with no sudden, unplanned or unpleasant experiences - important when a set of tyres can cost £12,000+" said OTR Waste Industry Manager Paul Tracey.
The parameters for the contract are set by a number of factors including working hours, known tyre wear, expected damage and repairs etc.
An integral part of a typical ‘Tyre Hire' contract and a fundamental part of good tyre management is TotalTyreLogic - OTR's tyre management service, popular in the waste industry.
TotalTyreLogic provides the complete ‘cradle to grave' earthmover tyre service, with responsibility for each tyre placed with OTR. Through regular onsite inspections, the company monitors tyre wear and usage and organises rotation, replacement, repairs and retreading as required to ensure tyre life is maximised with running costs and downtime minimised.
"TyreLogic, the online element to TotalTyreLogic, differentiates the company's tyre management programme from any other as it enables earthmover tyre users to retrieve secure, up to date fleet information at anytime, anywhere, through the OTR website. This is a vital tool, tracking tyre performance and providing data for forward planning and replacement" said OTR Waste Industry Manager Paul Tracey.
OTR occupy a unique position in the earthmover marketplace, with the resources and capabilities to provide a comprehensive and effective out-sourced tyre service to nationwide, multi-site customers.
Depots are strategically placed throughout the UK, supported by a fleet of specialist tyre handling vehicles, which are operated by an experienced team of tyre fitters. OTR's own retreading facility can retread all tyres from 24"-49" and houses tyre Fil and repairs facilities plus extensive stocks of tyres, wheels and rims.
A Shanks' spokesperson commented: "OTR's unique management and operation service has allowed us to get on with our own business - in the main we hear little about our heavy plant tyres as OTR plan changes and repairs themselves and our site managers know exactly what their costs are".
