Tyres of the future to be unveiled at Logistics UK webinar

As the only part of the vehicle that touches the road, tyres have a vital role to play for the logistics sector, particularly on road safety.

As more fleet operators prepare to embrace the electric transport revolution, good tyre management has never been more important.

A Logistics UK webinar on EV Tyre Development wil be be held on 21 March 2022 to offer members early sight of the next generation of tyres, which is being developed specifically with the needs of electric trucks in mind. Gary Powell, Technical Manager at truck parts manufacturer Bridgestone, will showcase pioneering truck tyre technology, and Carla Detrieux, Director of Business Development at Anglo-Swedish electric truck manufacturer Volta Trucks, will explain the unique requirements of the next generation of commercial vehicles.

Gary Powell said: “The road to zero emissions calls for the decarbonisation of commercial vehicles. For this reason, Bridgestone has been pioneering new truck tyre technologies to deliver the best products, services and solutions for the next revolution in commercial vehicles.”

Denise Beedell, Public Policy Manager, Logistics UK, who will be chairing the webinar, said: “With far fewer moving parts, the next generation of electric commercial vehicles will require considerably less servicing and maintenance than their petrol and diesel predecessors. However, good tyre management will continue to be fundamentally important to the safe, efficient and compliant operation of commercial fleets. I have no doubt that our members will benefit enormously from an early glimpse of this emerging tyre technology, told from the perspectives of both a tyre and truck manufacturer.”

Taking place between 11am and 12pm on Monday 21 March 2022, EV Tyre Development will be free to Logistics UK members. Please visit the Logistics UK website to book your place on this webinar.
