HOW WE INCREASE
Fleet managers are constantly seeking ways to decrease their cost per mile. Every tire-related issue results in time spent on maintenance and money spent on replacement equipment.
WHERE IT STARTS
But beyond maintenance-related challenges, problems with driver turnover are adding to the costly effect of downtime. In “Examining Driver Turnover and Retention in the Trucking Industry” by Harrison and Pierce, the average cost of losing one driver was estimated between $5,000 and $8,000. And retaining drivers is another significant challenge: Fleet Owner found that the average driver turnover for the first three months of 2017 was 74% in large fleets.
Balanced tires provide a smoother ride. In fact, testing has proven that adding FLEXX to drive tires improves ride quality by as much as 60%.
FLEXX works to continuously balance tires and the rest of the wheel assembly. It helps you cut down on uneven tire wear that leads to wasted energy, increased fuel consumption, and agitated drivers.
As the only comprehensive wheel refinishing system that can deliver safe, consistent results, IMI MILCURE sets a new standard for safety and quality in steel wheel refinishing solutions. It offers longer wheel life that keeps semi-trucks on the road, and its focused, three-step inspection process offers you and your service provider superior quality control.
When products are created from integrity and road-tested for the highest quality and efficiency, you can feel confident that your CPM is constantly benefiting from their use. CHECKPOINT was developed with this in mind. CHECKPOINT lug nut indicators provide a quick visual early warning of potential loose wheel nuts, reducing the likelihood of a wheel-off.
While tire injuries can never be completely prevented, a tire sealant solution placed inside the tire can quickly repair punctures up to ¼” to protect against blowouts and to ensure your trucks keep rolling at full pressure and peak efficiency.
